Guess where New Yorkers travel to?

For June 2016 issue of the New York magazine w42st, I was asked to illustrate an infographic that shows the many destinations of the New Yorkers when they finally decide to leave the island of Manhattan. Here’s what I came up with:

Ja, Doch: The Street Art Of German Small Towns

Hallo, meine Freunde!

More than 26,000 students live in Gottingen, thus, there are always quite a few street arts – propaganda messages that the forward-thinking progressive youth would want to put out there, like this one:
