Troy Laundry building

I wish I had sketches of New Year's fireworks to show you, but at my near-40 age I was already sleeping by the time the new year came around. So let me just show you another sketch of an architectural gem in South Lake Union: the old Troy Laundry building. This is the same building I see from my desk at The Seattle Times. I love the beehive-shaped sign so I had to draw it up close. I really got into the sign so much that I forgot about the proportions with the building and it came out bigger than it is in reality.

[ Me gustaría poder enseñaros dibujos de los fuegos artificiales de año nuevo pero a mi edad rozando los 40 yo ya estaba durmiendo cuando entramos en el 2009. En su lugar, os enseño un dibujo de esta joya arquitectónica del barrio de South Lake Union: la antigua Lavandería Troy. Se trata del mismo edificio que veo desde mi mesa de trabajo en el Seattle Times. Me encanta el letrero en forma de panal de abejas. Estaba tan concentrado dibujándolo que me olvidé de las proporciones con el edificio y me salió más grande de lo que es en realidad. ]
