"I was looking at a book of hand-drawn maps called Mapping Manhattan, and decided to make my own. For me, visiting New York feels like entering the Total Perspective Vortex from Hitchhiker's Guide. The city has a way of making me feel small and insignificant like nowhere else in the world.
All of the quotes from the map are my own; bits of thoughts, conversations I've had with people, that sort of thing. Someone once told me that the "worried well" all go to therapy on the upper west side, so I have a few images related to that. And there are a few sketches strewn in from places in New York I actually do like; the Bethesda statue, a bag from The Strand."
