Empire State Of Pen By Patrick Vale
This short by the London based illustrator, animator and artist Patrick Vale showcases a timelapse of his process for creating a full, freehand illustration of Manhattan with ink. The illustration was completed over the course of 4-5 days, and a few dozen cups of coffee from the looks of it. I was left wishing that he hadn't done the thick outlining towards the end, but c'est la vie..It's still an incredible feat that he accomplished. You can check out more of his work over on his website, featuring a few other massive illustrations of various cities around the world.
