My name is Santi Sallés, I am an illustrator and graphic designer. I am an urban sketcher. Last year (2014) I turned 50 and decided to treat myself to a trip to New York, my favorite city. For 23 days I was strolling around the city and drawing iconic buildings, places and objects that caught my attention.
New York is endless, anything inspires a drawing. Classics such as the Empire State Building, the Guggenheim Museum and the Statue of Liberty, or the American fast food, the taxis, the firefighters fire hydrants, etc.
I have created this project in order to share it with people who love New York and who also appreciate art books illustrated by the author.
