Patrick Vale – a UK based artist has produced another one of his incredible NYC skyline drawings and taken a stunning video record of it with the video entitled “Colossus”. The vantage point for his super detailed and intricate drawing is the viewing deck at Rockefeller Center, which according to experienced tourists is one of the best high points to experience the density and whole vide of the city. Patrick took several images and made hand-sketches of the work in this video on a trip in December of 2014 during a time of the year when it was -15C or 5F outside. He then went back and created this extraordinary video which captures even the finest grains of the city’s three-dimensional grid. Enjoy the video and see the way such an intricate piece is created through planning and lots of layers one upon the other.
Make sure to also see Patrick’s other videos and great collection of images from earlier projects including Empire State of Pen, done from the roof deck of the Empire State building.
