New York has been a part of me all of my life. It was where I had my first real corporate job, where I fell in love, where I had my heart broken for the first time and so many more memories I couldn’t even begin to list. So when I came across illustrations by James Gulliver Hancock I fell in love.
Description from his site: “All The Buildings In New York is a personal project of James Gulliver Hancock. An illustrator from Australia now based between Sydney, and New York. This project stems from an interest in obsession and recording of places. New York holds a special place in everyone’s heart, romanticized from Seasame Street and old movies like Rear Window and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. This blog records an attempt to make the city personal by passing a pen over every structure, hopefully making up for the time not spent in New York.”
I would love to frame prints of his of spots that are important to me. For now I will have to make do with his incredible book. If you love New York as much as I do, take a look. You won’t be disappointed.
