But one thing didn't change: The intuitive and pure expression of your feelings and reflection of your world around you when performing art. This is exactly what Jorge is doing at a level of perfection, that enables him to capture not only a scenary of some part of the city, but also an intense atmosphere, a specific mood, when strolling through NYC, no matter wether during day or at night. When looking at his paintings I could recognize and recall these "moods" from moments, when exploring the city by myself.
The book is an amazing example of how techniques of creating art are changing in the age of information technologies, but it is still possible to capture subtle atmospheres like the great painters of the past centuries did before. IT works ;-)
