True story: I can’t draw for sh*t. Like, if someone came to me and said, “We’re going to behead your mother unless you draw us a good picture of a giraffe,” I’d be like, “Well, it’s been nice knowing you as a person with a head, mom!” So I’ve always been quietly envious of people who can draw. The guy in this video, Patrick Vale, is one of those people and Jesus Christ is he good.

Watch and be mesmerized as he draws the Manhattan skyline from the Empire State Building with an ink pen. Yes, an ink pen. I kind of hate you, Patrick Vale!
