    I work with children with Autism and they amaze me EVERYDAY! He has an AWESOME talent. I bet his family is VERY supportive. I find that most families who accept it earlier and get specialized treatment have children who learn to express themselves through some form of art. This is truly an amazing thing... I am always in awe of God's amazing children... :)

    Hmmm...  I think I do....  they're a bit darker than the surrounding buildings, though because of the perspective not any taller.

    Here's another view of the same drawing.  I think what Susan is talking about is behind him in this shot.

    Since he draws from memory and his tour of NY was only this year, I don't think the Twin Towers are in the drawing.

    I got this video about him by email a couple of days ago...
    He's drawing Rome.

    Since he draws from memory and his tour of NY was only this year, I don't think the Twin Towers are in the drawing.

    The drawing is from this year, but I don't think it mentioned when his tours were, other than that there were at least three.  And I think that it referred to NYC as his "spiritual home", so he might have spent time there earlier.

    Maybe someone here who is very familiar with that skyline can identify what other buildings those might be?

    Not that it really matters either way  --  the drawings truly are amazing!
