New York-New York

Like with everything in Las Vegas: all is larger than life.
It's hard to imagine that anything would be able to surpass the real New York, but here it is: a condensed version of NYC. All famous sights available within a hundred meters, evenly spread among rows of slot machines. And they were even able to fit in a rollercoaster....
I made the drawing in the shade of the Excalibur Casino across the street, but at a certain point the burning sun hit my head and I had to stop. Sweat was dripping on the paper. So I coloured the drawing at home.

An instant favorite of mine! Beautiful sketch.

Thanks Rob. It was one of those rare occasions that you feel the drawing is going to work, even while drawing it.
