An artist has created an amazingly detailed view of New York’s skyline from a picture in his mind. Stephen Wiltshire, from London, made the 18ft x 3ft sketch at a Brooklyn art institute after a 20-minute flight over the city.

Encouraged by his family, Mr Wiltshire uses his drawings to help himself learn. He has created 26 coded pictures, all of which correspond to a letter in the alphabet, to help him to speak. He can get through up to 12 pens during his sketches, which can take a week to finish.

Mr Wiltshire has also produced sketches of Tokyo, Rome and Hong Kong, and has been invited to display his talents this week on CBS, the American television network.
