200 West 34th Street, New York, NY

I feel incredibly privileged to live so close to New York City and be a part of its constant moving color and music. This piece isn’t from my sketchbook–I made it separately on illustration board using pencils, pens, color pencils, watercolors, and markers. Inspired by the crowds of the city–my father’s office building also overlooks this intersection. Here’s one of the reference pictures I used from Google maps. I took different sections of the panoramic view and combined them.

One of the reference photos for the piece.
 
And another slice: (You can actually go on Google Maps’ street view and explore this for yourself.)
The finished piece (this photo is a bit yellow…) A couple of hours and a lot of Pandora radio later:
