Seattle muralist Henry started painting at the Museum of Flight on Tuesday. My plan was to sketch him as he worked. On Tuesday, it didn’t work out due to logistical issues and the visit of some friends.

I went over again on Wednesday morning but it had been raining. So I left when he wasn’t there. However, he must have worked at some point as the mural had progressed when I arrived for my usual shift at the Museum this morning.  Note the tardigrade in the upper right!

I finally got my chance to sketch after my shift.

He’s almost hidden behind the equipment.  His lab, Katie, is nearby.  She doesn’t seem to like to be separated from him.  If he walks away, she cries and whines.  (8.5×11 Bee Creative sketchbook, 100% cotton, 140#).

He moved to a different section of the mural and I changed my point of view.
