Illustration Friday- "LOST"


Illustration Friday- "LOST", originally uploaded by m patrizio.

Nothing breaks my heart more in the winter than to see lost gloves on the sidewalk. So I was thinking if I ever become mayor of NYC I would have the NYGRU- New York Glove Recovery Unit. Found gloves would be tagged and filed according to location found. If you lose one of your gloves you just head down to the G.R.U. and see if someone has returned it. Also if I was mayor, I would hire homeless people to work at visitor info kiosks. Who would know the streets any better then them?

i love your style so much! (I once knew someone who used to collect orphaned salt or pepper shakers) and she had this shelf filled with so many of them. It was sorta sad and sorta happy to see them all up there together...

Beautiful concept and beautiful visual!
That's remember me that Some times ago in Florence I've read a desperate call written on a piece of paper of someone who had lost a teddy Bear ....
