Symposium Participant: Will Scales

Hi folks. My name is Will, and I live in Seattle. I’m very much looking forward to the symposium in Portland. It will be great to meet and have a chance to learn from so many talented and dedicated people. And what could be better than living through the pen, brush and sketchbook for three days!

In my work life I’m an architect, so I spend a lot of time creating drawings that attempt to describe manipulations of the built environment. So I enjoy sketching as a way to simply observe and absorb our built, natural and cultural surroundings. I posted a few recent sketches here; there’s more at my Flickr site.

Looking forward to meeting you all in July!

  1. Hi Will, went to your Flickr site--love the watercolor sketches!

  2. Hi Will. Nice to meet a close-by neighbor. Look forward to meeting you in Portland. And you're always invited to come sketch with the Whidbey Island Sketchers! Meet you soon.

  3. Your sketches, here and on your blog, are wonderful--filled with vitality. My son used to live in Seattle. You've captured many of the sights and sounds of the city that know with fondness. Also, your travel sketches: the Hagia Sofia is one of my favorite buildings on the planet.

  4. Hey! look here for my secret technique that would allow you to gain an A+ for every narrative essay you would write. I have made it for the last five years!
