All the Buildings in New York


If like me, you love New York and that sketchy type of line drawing, it's likely you'll enjoy the work of James Gulliver Hancock (great name), an illustrator currently
based in Brooklyn, originally from Australia.

James is SO enthusiastic for the architectural beauty in his adopted home, he set himself the impossible task of drawing ALL the buildings in New York. He started in 2010 and insists it's a work in progress, but there are still a mind-boggling number of illustrations to browse through on his blog.

I took on the task of picking out some favourites:
