Today, the world of architectural illustration is littered with digital, computer generated work. My goal as an artist is to show the viewer the beauty and detail of architectural subjects in the traditional medium of pencil. Excellence in realism is what I strive for, as my drawings intend to emphasize all of the elements and surroundings of a building that make each one so unique. I study how light interacts with each structure and through value contrast and varying pencil strokes, create textures that lift the subject off of the paper and bring the architecture to life. Achieving this with just a pencil challenges my skill, tests my humility, and ultimately rewards and inspires me to create more.


Top of One World by GregDiNapoli
Top of One World
"Top of One World"

Finished this pencil drawing of the top of One World Trade Center, aka the Freedom Tower, with it's spire rising to a symbolic height of 1,776 feet. One of the most important architectural projects of this generation, 1WTC is a visual reminder to stand tall after you get knocked down.

Prints of all of my drawings can be found here:

Yankee Stadium
Pencil drawing (2H to 6B range) of Yankee Stadium in the Bronx in New York City. Completed in 2009, this Yankee Stadium replaced the original Yankee Stadium that was built in 1923. Like the original Yankee Stadium, the Yankees won the World Series in the first season they played here. Prints available here:…

"Freedom Rising"

Graphite pencil 3H-5B Mars Lumographs & 0.3 Pentel GraphGear 1000 Mechanical.

My most difficult and time consuming drawing to date, "Freedom Rising" depicts One World Trade Center, often referred to as the Freedom Tower, rising over lower Manhattan. It is a symbol of the resiliency of New York City and America. Prints can be ordered here:
