Taking the marker straight to one of your walls has become an interestingly growing trend in D.I.Y. wall art, and even popular artists are practicing this method in places like retail shops and boutique hotels around the world. The Ace Hotel in New York is home to Timothy Goodman’s line drawings on the walls of special guest rooms.
99 hand sketches in this room, to be exact. With carefully laid out and perfectly executed sketches depicting the various aspects to the concrete jungle, Goodman’s photos tell a story (or 10) of life in the Big Apple. The Ace’s desert counterpart in Palm Springs doesn’t quite have this city-chic vibe, but Goodman’s art and expressive qualities really encapsulate a ‘bigger picture’ look at New York as a whole.
