There are two amazing artists that have turned their detailed and talented eyes toward Gotham and produced two of the most beautiful illustrations of New York City I have ever seen.
First Jenni Sparks. She has created a beautiful NYC map – somehow chaotic and balanced at the same time with all the details and accuracy you could want combined with a sense of quirky fun. Can’t say enough. Except that I want it and I want the London one as well. I know JUST where I’d put the pair of them.
Secondly, a time lapse video that made the rounds some time ago of illustrator Patrick Vale creating a view of Manhattan from midtown down to the Battery. He has also done a London in the same style and – again – I can totally see putting the pair in pride of place in my office. Good thing I have a lot of walls 🙂
