Artist Stephen Wiltshire Draws Manhattan From Memory
via NY Magazine from the Daily Intel section
This is amazing and really cool: Stephen Wiltshire, a British artist who has autism, is drawing a twenty-foot-long panorama of the New York City skyline entirely from memory, after taking just one twenty-minute helicopter ride while visiting the city. The results so far are amazing, as are Wiltshire's impressions of the city.
