I Draw Famous Cities From My Memory

The city fascinates me, no it totally absorbes me, actually it excites me to such degree that I feel like spending hours, days, weeks and sometimes months recreating in fine detail my impressions of all great cities I’ve visited.

Mainly from memory, I reconstruct whole cities in pen and ink and not a single little detail is lost on me: streetlights, subway entrances, shopfronts, park benches, yes, even curtains in windows. None of it is left out so I can reproduce as much as possible the same sensation I had when walking through the places which hold my fascination even long after I’ve left. I must admit I do make sketches in pen or watercolour on the spot sometimes if I get stuck and in case of an creative emergency I resort to photographic material, but only as a support.

New York above all, but also Rome, London, Budapest, Paris, Amsterdam, Florence and many, many other places provide me with an endless amount of images and perspectives fit for reproduction or to be used in imaginary but highly realistic metropolises which could actually exist.

Below you can see a few examples of my work. Enjoy!
