This is about the work in progress for the book “I am New York”, I create for Moleskine Publisher in 2018. Here it is possible to see the connection between the first sketches and the final illustrations, so between the “I have a dream” Time and the Dream that finally came true. It is interesting to see that many first rough drawings were impossible to translate into the finals, because they were exaggerated and abandoned to a crazy fantasy.
