It seems like an impossible task, but James Gulliver Hancock is attempting to draw all the buildings in New York.

Hancock is an illustrator living in Brooklyn, and he admits to having somewhat of an obsessive interest in recording places and things. It’s an ongoing personal project that he knows might never be completed. I love his style, and his tenacity. There is definitely something to be said about setting huge goals like this and slowly working toward completing them. Usually some pretty amazing things come out of that process.

You can follow his progress on his blog, and you can see all of the work that he has done so far in his new book.
