"After my first sight of New York in 1988 I was compelled to go and draw the city, drawing directly from life, in the streets. I sit for hours at a time, sometimes a whole day, working large-scale in ink and colour on paper and have made several hundred drawings in this way, from recognised sights to ordinary corners, people and daily life." - Lucinda Rogers.
"Luckily, she started drawing the city 30 years ago, when much of Manhattan was still pre-corporate and untamed. These drawings render the distilled essence of New York City, a strong and complex blend of flavors." - Luc Sante, author of Low Life : Lures and Snares of Old New York.
