See, this is what I have against graphic designers: can  you imagine what Flatbush Avenue or Coney Island Avenue would look like if they were turned over to a graphic design firm to rehab? They’d make it look harmonious, balanced, clean...and devoid of life. A street that grows by accumulation like a coral reef is infinitely more interesting to me than a beautifully-designed one. Am I being unfair and overly simplistic? Sure. So? What’s your point?

By the way, just for the record, this is not a drawing, it’s a fucked-with photo.
