We’ve spoken before about how we’re kind of over timelapse but just as we look to close the door on it something like this comes along and we’re forced to hold our proverbial horses. London-based illustrator Patrick Vale has released a video of him drawing the Manhattan skyline as seen from the 102nd floor of The Empire State Building and it’s staggering to watch his work take shape before your eyes. Even condensing this feat into 80 seconds doesn’t detract from the ridiculous level of skill involved – in fact it heightens your appreciation of the scale of this undertaking. Well done Patrick sir!
