Sketchy Everett

Elizabeth is an Everett, Washington-based artist and graphic designer. Using pen and watercolor, she sketches from life and creates 'illustrative infographics,' often featuring Northwest themes. Her illustrations can be spotted at local cafés, on concert posters, and, most recently, at her favorite store, Metsker's Maps of Seattle. She has served as a Cultural Arts Commissioner for the City of Everett since 2011. Visit to view her work. She is committed to exploring Everett's 'sketchiness' from sunup to sundown.

Richard Porter is a social worker and musician. He lives in North Everett with his wife and two children. His favorite local activities include running on Marine View Drive, bicycling down tree-lined streets, and trying to coax vegetables out of his yard.



Anna Tatistcheff
The nerd in the family 

Anna is a freelance graphic designer based out of Everett. Coming from a family of nerds, she loves playing Legend of Zelda, binge watching Harry Potter, and driving around in her Nissan Cube (with a Firefly sticker to match). When not coming up with gag-worthy puns, she enjoys inhaling great food and cider, romping around with her canine Dixie, and going on mini adventures in Everett with her hubby. Oh, and she also helps manage Live in Everett's site. No biggie.

Brad Heyne
Food and other general tastiness  

Brad is an Everett, Washington-based barista and musician. He's currently managing the Silver Cup Café in downtown Everett and playing in the local band, Preacher's Wife. His affinity for great flavors, music and nightlife makes him a familiar face and you'll often spot him at a show, a bar, or grabbing happy hour with friends. We often joke that when you eat somewhere with Brad, just order whatever he orders – because it's always better than anything you'd pick. Look for his posts on the blog, they'll help you know what to eat and drink in Everett at any given time.
