When I was in Syracuse University's Independent Study Degree Program, we were assigned an illustration of New York City after we visited. I did not want to create an image that captured common images used to express the city. Instead I did a group of 12 illustrations that captured aspects of the New York I knew from my time living on the West Side.

I was familiar with people congregating on stoops together -- people in the neighborhood mixing and meeting. From that came the concept of the people and culture from the street, which drives so much of the music, art and fashion we see. I created this illustration as an outgrowth of that work suggesting the liveliness and activity the street drives.

The city within
holds a boulevard of hope.
Every street knows you.
