Windows of New York

ooooooooh i LOVE projects like this!! graphic designer José Guizar illustrates and shares one window a week for his Windows of New York project. did i tell you we’re going to NYC for our honeymoon? so whenever i see anything NYC related i get even more excited. Says José,

The Windows of New York project is a weekly illustrated fix for an obsession that has increasingly grown in me since chance put me in this town. A product of countless steps of journey through the city streets, this is a collection of windows that somehow have caught my restless eye out from the never-ending buzz of the city. This project is part an ode to architecture and part a self-challenge to never stop looking up.

    Beautiful!
    Many years ago a Portuguese artist had the same project but she painted the windows of Lisbon. If you are interested you can see some here:

    This is so cool. Now i’m looking for windows i recognize! Wouldn’t it be amazing to see your own address here?!

    Brilliant!

    And, though often over-compared, perhaps a series for Parisienne windows should also be created?

    Just some thoughts ;)
