Our contribution for the B&A “I HEART NY-LON” volume book.
The illustration is inspired by the contrast of life and time on the ‘outside’ vs ‘inside’ of NY. When you’re walking in a city as big and vibrant as NY, the rhythm of the city automatically controls your pace. It’s almost as if time ticks differently when you’re in the heart of NY. But then you catch a glimpse of someone’s life, maybe through the window of a diner, and you realise how many people have lived their life on the exact same place you’re living yours - and how many people will do after you’ve left. You hesitate for an instant. And then the heartbeat of the city takes over again.
