For 25 years, Gregory Blackstock, an adult with autism, worked tirelessly as a dishwasher at the Washington Athletic Club. During those years, he discovered his true passion: drawing. His art was always celebrated by those at the WAC; the kitchen walls were adorned with his impressively detailed and off-beat drawings, and oftentimes, his artwork was featured in the employee newsletters. The publicity within the WAC eventually launched Blackstock’s career as an artist—a Seattle art gallery stumbled upon his art and contacted him immediately. Gregory then quit his dishwashing job to pursue his passion for art. He now has collectors and supporters worldwide that love his unique, intricate drawings. So inspiring!
