The Empire State Building is FINISHED

Posted by jtebeau on April 19, 2011

… as in completed. Done. My drawing of it.

Finished yesterday in about 12.5 months less time than it took to build the original, which still stands proud at 34th and Fifth Avenue. The Pride of the City. The Big Monkey. The ESB.

It will be for sale, too. I’m setting up a website called “Postcards from NY,” where I’ll either auction it off or sell it at a set price. More on that later. For now, ladies and gentleman, I give you…

THE BIG MONKEY!

(crowd cheers, flashbulbs pop, chains break, crowd gasps, etc….)

A Postcard from New York: the Empire State Building

Posted by jtebeau on March 21, 2011

I carry a decent little camera with me pretty much all the time. Okay, pretty much when I’m wearing a jacket or shorts with big pockets. Pretty much then. The point is to take pictures that are better than you can get with a (“my’) crummy little phone.

A couple blocks from the Empire State Building I took a snap of an incongruous view: the ESB surging into the sky from behind a couple smaller, ornate buildings from an earlier era. I’m working on a b/w version of this picture, done with ink and brush. It’s not completed yet, but here’s a peek:
