When we heard that Gabi was going to be on a local TV Show, New Day NW, to promote his upcoming show at the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI), Tina and I got tickets to be in the audience. Tina got two, so Natalie joined us. We treated it like a sketch outing and sketched during the show!
We went to the NBC affiliate, King 5, to see the show recorded. While we were waiting, I sketched the station’s lobby with the Christmas tree from the second story balcony.
Once seated in the studio, I sketched the set, thinking that’s where Gabi would sit for the interview. I had most of it done, just waiting for his segment.
Since Gabi’s segment wasn’t recorded there, I finished it with just the host, Kim.
But it turned out they set up a table with his sketches. That’s where the interview took place. This was set up before the previous segment was recorded, so I could get most of it sketched before his interview started. Here is the interview. (It starts with an ad)
Here’s Gabi talking with the audience during the break after his segment recorded.
Since it was a sketch outing, we had to do the requisite pose with our sketch books, standing with a poster of the King-5 mascot.
Before Gabi’s segment was Doktor Kaboom, a New Day regular and one of my favorites. I’d recommend watching He has cool science experiments to do with kids. Here he’s built a person-sized hovercraft. Before this, though, he showed how to build a simple one out of an old cd and a balloon.
