Tomorrow's edition of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer will be the 146-year-old paper's last issue in print. Local journalist and illustrator Gabi Campanario, founder of Urban Sketchers, honored the paper with these beautiful sketches posted last Thursday. We thought they were well worth sharing.
Campanario ends his artistic statement with a plea reflective of our moment in changing times:
If you are an urban sketcher I'd recommend that you draw the building of your city's newspaper. And if you don't already, buying a copy might help them keep covering the news. I know you can read them all for free online now, but, you know, they are not free to produce. The folks at the P-I know that very well.
