Return to Re-use

We knew after our first event at Re-use Hawaiʻi that we would be back, and today was the day – finally! The choice of sketch subjects related to construction and remodeling was supplemented by an adorable cat that received commensurate attention. Locals, as well as visiting fellow sketchers from Portland, scattered across the many aisles and pallets to find their favorite target. The haul was diverse again: sinks, light fixtures, tools, and various views of the warehouse and the yard were presented at show-and-tell which was held in the comfortable store lobby.

Thank you, Re-use Hawaiʻi, for hosting us again – it goes without saying that we will be back!

As always, don’t forget to check out our sketches on Flickr and upload your own!

Stay tuned for details about our next event!

Salvaged. Stored. Sketched!

Warehouse manager Carolyn opened this morning’s sketch event with an inspired summary of Re-use Hawaii’s mission, setting the stage for us sketching just a tiny fraction of the countless salvaged and donated construction and household items on display. For the social media minded, here is the tag list from our show-and-tell session: toilet bowl, lion sculpture, giant hardwood slab, curious patron, mitre saw, storage shelf, forklift, lumber yard, ceiling light, warehouse, forged pliers, sink, metal sign, tiger boat, … and the list goes on. It was a good day to encounter (and sketch) something we had never even seen before!

Thank you again to Carolyn for being such a welcoming and enthusiastic host! We will be back!
