Goodbye, Summer

There's definitely a chill in the air, so I thought I would say goodbye to summer with a blog post. I spent a little time on the West Coast this summer, and had a great time drawing and seeing art.
This is from the Seattle Art Museum, although I didn't write down any information about it. We didn't have much time to poke around that day, but if you're in town, the museum well worth a visit.

Another place to check out if you're in Seattle is Gasworks Park, possibly my favorite city park ever. You can check out my drawings from that day here.

And then we moved on to San Francisco. What a beautiful place, with some really unusual flora!

Of course we hit all the big landmarks:

And while I don't think it gives New York a run for its money city-wise, it does have some pretty styling locals (and on a bike!!).

I managed to stop by the famed City Lights Bookstore, and did my part to support (by buying a book — I'm always happy to do that!).

I spent my last evening with Vivian, having some delicious margaritas and Mexican food at the Velvet Cantina in the Mission.

I was back in New York a few weeks, but then headed out to Boston for my friend Sara's wedding reception. While in town, I took a duck tour of Boston in a DUKW amphibious vehicle with my aunt! The tour was very fun, and informative, although I was little miffed because I couldn't find our picture on their website later. So all I have is a picture of the DUCK we were on.
