Jason Polan was on a mission to draw every person in New York, from cab drivers to celebrities. He drew people eating at Taco Bell, admiring paintings at a museum, and sleeping on the subway. With a foreword by Kristen Wiig, Every Person in New York, Volume 1 collects thousands of Polan's energetic drawings in one chunky book. As full as a phone book and as invigorating as a walk down a bustling New York street, this is a new kind of love letter to a beloved city and the people who live there.

Jason Polan was an artist living in New York City. He exhibited his work all over the world. His Every Person in New York book represents a slice of the more than 100,000 people he drew for his project - a project that perhaps most singularly encapsulates the inclusive and generous spirit Jason brought to his artistic practice.

On most days Jason could be found between his regular haunts of the post office, a bookstore, his favorite museums, and regular meetings of the Taco Bell Drawing Club-an everybody welcome weekly drawing club that he originally founded upon moving to New York as a way to meet people.
