Houston Public Media: London-based artist makes debut


All it takes is a quick helicopter ride over the city for Stephen Wiltshire to create a panoramic drawing from memory, writes Amy Bishop, arts and culture reporter for Houston Public Media.

Wiltshire has earned international fame for his detailed panoramas of cityscapes, which he draws after only a helicopter flyover. He says the process starts by putting a few sketches on paper while he’s in the air, then he draws the rest from memory.
