An Illustrated Guide to the Windows of New York

by Ellie Seymour

It might be a little flower box on a grimy ledge, a flickering neon sign, or a pet cat that catches the eye of Mexican illustrator, José Guízar, who has become obsessed with documenting the windows of New York since moving to the city a year ago. He started The Windows of New York project as a way of celebrating the city’s quirky architecture and as a challenge to himself not to stop looking up and appreciating his new surroundings. Every time he draws a new window, he uploads it to his website which I’ve had a little flick through to pick out a few of my favourites:
