Jason Polan has undertaken a project that seems nearly impossible; on his website he states:

I am trying to draw every person in New York. I will be drawing people everyday and posting as frequently as I can. It is possible that I will draw you without you knowing it. I draw in Subway stations and museums and restaurants and on street corners. I try not to be in the way when I am drawing or be too noticeable. Whenever I have a new batch of drawings I will post them on this blog.

He'll even set up a 2-minute sitting with you, should you want to be sketched as a part of this elaborate project. Details are at his website.

Not quite as detailed as the pieces that the late Marvin Franklin would come home with at the end of the day, but ambitious nonetheless.
