James Gulliver Hancock has been attempting to draw all the buildings in New York. While I don't think he's quite there yet, his process has yielded a fascinating glimpse of the New York City landscape. He has been cataloging his images on his blog and most recently on display at Con Artist (an underground gallery space, and I mean that literally) in the Lower East Side.
I'm so glad I made it over there today. I met James and saw a number of his pieces in person. I love the way his images give life to the architecture, as if each one has its own personality. And if you live in New York, it's especially fun to recognize certain street corners you may have passed a million times without much notice.
Any of James' images can be purchased as prints. He takes original commissions as well in case he hasn't gotten to your special corner just yet...
Great show, James!
