got sketch? - Views on New York

when i saw this article on New York Times, i knew i had to post this since i love New York. although i still haven't been there, i am still in love with that city. Matteo Pericoli asks well-known New Yorkers to describe what they see from their windows and he has put together a book of his drawings "The City Out My Window: 63 Views on New York".

here are some of the drawings that's in the book...

david byrne, musician & artist

mario batali, chef

john berendt, writer

junot diaz, writer

kurt andersen, novelist & radio host

mark morris, choreographer

megan o'rourke, poet

mikhail baryshnikov, dancer & choreographer & actor

nicole krauss, writer

peter sis, artist

philip glass, composer

rosanne cash, musician & writer

by seeing all these sketches makes me want to sketch the view we have from our window...i'll have to put that on my "to do" list ^_^.

it's a great coffee table book to have. i'm going to have to put this book on my "to buy" list. (yes, i seem to like to make "lists" and the best part about the making lists is crossing them off since it's been "completed".)
