We always talk about the importance of personal and side projects to learn something new and reinvigorate the mind as a diversion from our day to day jobs. Enter The Windows of New York project by Jose Guizar, a project we stumbled upon and just had to share. We hope this post inspires you to slow down and take a look around as you never know if the simple elements we take for granted everyday may evolve into the centerpiece of your next creative work.

The Windows of New York project is a weekly illustrated fix for an obsession that has increasingly grown in me since chance put me in this town. A product of countless steps of journey through the city streets, this is a collection of windows that somehow have caught my restless eye out from the never-ending buzz of the city. This project is part an ode to architecture and part a self-challenge to never stop looking up. - Jose Guizar
