Hand drawn map of New York

Jenni Sparks:

Here is the hand drawn map of New York that I’ve been working on for what seems like FOREVER! Thanks to New York for being a great city and surviving Hurricane Sandy.

I can’t draw a straight line with a ruler so I’m always amazed at this kind of hand drawing. I was disappointed to not see the Bronx and Yankee Stadium (among other places) in this print but even without them, she still captured an incredible level of detail.

  • This piece hearkens back to a lot of great illustration work I used to see in magazines like New York. One or two of those survive as posters in offices I’ve interviewed at over the past few years.

    This couldn’t have been better-timed. A good friend just got a job and an apartment in New York, and I know what my Christmas/housewarming present will be. It looks fantastic, and I agree with Moeskido, very classic-looking illustration.

    Internet, sometimes you really come through.
