Thursday Doors, USk: Grimm and Impact on 26th

W16 7 21 USK 26TH TWO DOORS GRIMM 01

26th Avenue, two doors within throwing distance of our studio.

Above, on the historic American Canning Company, which then became
the Multnomah County Medical Examiners offices
(and then, how apropos) became the door to Grimm’s studio costuming annex.
(Sitting across from Costuming and an experiment with tobacco ink gone a bit wrong…
I tried to save the sketch…. getting used to non-waterproof inks!)
Across the street was once the local ballpark, not ESCO corporation.

W16 4 2 VSK SPRING WALK MAILBOX 03

From a walk in spring; now the trees block out the building.

Below, the cheery bright green metal door to
Impact Jiu Jitzu workout room in an old warehouse.

Both of these buildings will be bulldozed if City Planners get their way.

For Thursday Doors, a blog round robin open to anyone!
If you love drawing doors, consider joining the blogfest!

    I like the medical examiners -> Grimm transition. You really can’t make this stuff up. Great job interpreting these doors. I like your drawing better than the real deal.
