Jason Polan – Every Person in NY



Jason Polan, a professional illustrator and artist, has taken on an ambitious and some would say, impossible project. He is attempting to draw a portrait of every person in New York City. You can witness his efforts at his blog which he updates every day with image after image of everyday people doing all sorts of things. Jason’s strategy is quite simple, he sits in public spaces or restaurants or parks and sketches who he sees around him.

You can follow his progress here.

And be sure to watch this MoMA 30-second film of Jason in action here.
