Seattle Times’ Sketcher Paints a Portrait of Finn Hill

Journalist and illustrator Gabriel Campanario illustrates life in the Puget Sound on his award-winning Seattle Times blog and weekly column Seattle Sketcher.  In May, Gabriel contacted us to research his next sketching outing: a visit to the neighborhoods annexed into Kirkland. We were thrilled to oblige with a guided tour of the area’s history and some of our favorite spots.

In this three-post series, Gabriel recounts his conversation with DCNA board member Lou Berner about the “greenest space on Lake Washington” and offers an illustrated journal of a stroll in O.O. Denny Park and the Denny Creek ravine with board member Francesca Lyman. Along the way, Gabriel stopped by Caffe Joy to sketch the only drive-thru coffee stand housed in a former 520-bridge toll booth. Thanks for sharing your wonderful sketches of our green spaces, Gabriel–we look forward to hosting your next visit!
