Where to get good coffee in post-apocalyptic Seattle

You'd be surprised how many places have coffee in post-apocalyptic Seattle, but unless your well-armed enough to make your way up to the Joe Bar Enclave or have an in to the Starbucks Bastion down south, New Belltown is your best bet. Even though there's nothing like a global economy any more, there are enough ocean nomads and blockade runners to keep a slow trickle of beans from the far South. A few isolated growers seem to be able to produce batches of beans hydroponically, although the hybrid beans are a little wonky sometimes. And there's always that instant stuff from the Starbucks facility, though no one;s quite sure what they're making it out of.

International District

Working today on the International District. This stuff is taking forever! Notice the post-apocalyptic kudzu swallowing the northern portion of the neighborhood; also, gardens on the roof of Uwajimaya.

I Know What I'm Doing this Summer

I just got the word that I'm going to have an art show at Seattle's Google offices in October. Since I use Google tools almost continuously to help create my art, I'm super excited about this show. The problem is, the picture I most want to show is nowhere near done.
I figure I need about 30 hours of work to finish this. Which means I'm going to be spending a lot of my mornings and evenings working on this between now and October. Fortunately, I can hardly think of a better way to spend my time.
