Colossus – A time lapse ink drawing of New York City’s skyline

London-based illustrator Patrick Vale builds New York City’s impressive skyline in less than three minutes — line by line, window by window — in this lovely time lapse video that captures four weeks of his work. The pen and ink illustration was drawn from rough sketches, photos, and videos he made from the roof of Rockefeller Center, and is entitled Colossus.

Vale has drawn NYC before. His downtown sketch of Manhattan from the Empire State Building took 4-5 days and went viral in 2012:
