CasaSugar talks to illustrator James Gulliver Hancock about his attempt to draw all the buildings in New York.
When asked about NYC architecture, James writes:
It’s opened my eyes to a lot of buildings I hadn’t seen before. Drawing is amazing like that, when you start to sit down and draw something, anything, you’ll see completely new details you missed when you just glance at it normally. I’ve started to see patterns emerge in how brownstones or townhouses utilize detailing. And also started to see this wonderful tetris-like connection between all the buildings. Sometimes it is so dense that it starts to feel like a patchwork, or an abstraction of itself, just blocks of shapes pieced together, background and foreground mixing into one.
