Article: Drawing "All the Buildings in New York"

Think of James Gulliver Hancock’s ongoing project “All the Buildings in New York” as the ink and paper Google Street View. An illustrator and world traveler, Hancock drew his way from Australia to France, England and the US before finally settling down in NY. In his notebooks he documented each city’s prevailing motifs, like rain in London and rooftops in Paris.
