I've waited over a week for a chance to really sit down and express how much I actually like this one!! You've created something that hit me in the heart the second I saw this come up in my folder of new pieces.

I love how you have maintained the unique style you have to all your works to create a skyline of the city.. with an actual map of Brooklyn and lower Manhattan. I personally haven't compared it to an actual map side by side, but based on my memory of these areas, it looks like you're on point with the streets and the detail of them is incredible. If I could choose one piece of all of the ones I've seen from you to be my all time favorite, THIS IS IT!!

I really can't find anything negative to give you so that you have something to improve on. I'm familiar with your style and based on the way you've done other works, the shading and contrast work is awesome. The layout and detail in the map is incredible, and the piece as a whole, it's a beautiful "multiple exposure" piece if you ask me. My first 5 star all around critique!!

Awesome work!!! Ever think of an elevated train line piece with buildings on either side... maybe the 7 train over Queens as you've done here?? :) Great work! Thanks for sharing!!!

Ohh mmmyyy.... it's so WONDERFUL! I love the skyline hidden in the map. 
As I (sometimes) say, "Artwork is time you can see". This must have taken a LOT of time!

Brilliant picture, it's like you're showing the bones of the city. Also I was impressed with the Eiffel tower picture. 


Pity the same can't be done with Dublin, all the historic areas are under threat from development and there's talk of demolishing part of Moore street where the Irish revolutionaries surrendered to the British army back in 1916

I love the concept of this. Extremely original and very well detailed. Even if I wasn't a New Yorker, I would love this piece. But since I am, I love it MORE.

The shapes which seem to suggest themselves as the result of this kind of juxtaposition are really quite interesting. I can see an eagle in there (or some kind of predatory bird). I can see outstretched hands. I can see a bolt of lightning and a city being wracked by a violent storm....^^
