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.

    Podría ser, pero me gustaría vivir unos años más y los destinos que me propones son muy duros. Tengo algún que otro proyecto en la cabeza muy interesantes...

    Santi, ¿admites propuestas temáticas para tus próximos libros? A mi se me ocurren unas cuantas: "Santi Sallés, 6 meses en La Modelo", "Chernobil revisited" o "Viaje al corazón del Estado Islámico". Después de Nueva York estaría bien algo más cañero!
