January 2017 Meeting: Gabriel CampanarioPosted by in meetings
Cartoonists Northwest welcomes
as our first Guest Speaker of 2017.
No doubt you have seen the work of Gabriel in the Seattle Times over the past eight years where he is a Staff Artist. The Spanish-born artist, journalist, husband and father has been living in the US since 1998, and Seattle since 2006.
His weekly feature The Seattle Sketcher has informed and delighted readers with its colorful illustrations and text articles since its April 2009 debut. He showcases area locales the average Seattleite may have come to take for granted or not have noticed in the first place. Past and present, new and historic, unique and commonplace, the Sketcher brought them to life in newsprint.
Gabriel also illustrated verious editorial pieces in the newspaper.
Gabriel is the founder of Urban Sketchers nonprofit, and has published books of his Urban Sketching. Not limiting himself to Seattle, his books are full of sketches from London, England and elsewhere around the world, he also shares his Tips and Techniques.
