New York City Drawings

This gallery includes a selection of drawings I made while living in New York City in 2009 and 2010.  I made them with felt marker on paper and sometimes incorporated pencil, watercolor and gold leaf.  They are my whimsical response to various aspects of the city, especially my love of the ginkgo trees that lined the streets around where I lived on the Upper West Side.  Making some of these drawing also helped me to learn the geography of Manhattan and Central Park, which is why there are several detailed and mostly accurate maps here.
