Using nothing but a pen and paper, the artist Taylor Mazer manages to create street illustrations that have an extremely realistic quality to them.

Most people have difficulty drawing a simple building or street without it looking like something else, but Mazer's work is not only almost photographic in its appearance, it is also exceptionally small. The artist is able to capture various scenes of streets with brick buildings, street lights, cars, melting snow and dimly lit alleyways that are extremely intricate and smaller than the length of a pen. The street illustrations are all around the size of a stamp, making the realistic way in which they were designed an even more impressive feat.

The artist Taylor Mazer is able to capture poignant images with few materials in a way that reveals his raw skill in recreating scenes that inspire him.
