Jason Polan

Every Person in NY (including Dom DeMarco)

One of my favorite new blogs lately is Every Person In New York, where artist Jason Polan has set out to draw every person in New York. Naturally I was excited to see that his most recent batch of drawings included a sketch of “The Man”, Dom DeMarco of Di Fara Pizzeria fame.

Every Person In NY - Dom DeMarco

There’s enough hype and opinion about Dom and Di Fara floating around to fill a book, but if you don’t know about him, suffice to say he’s among the most legendary living pizzaiolos in America today.

Here’s a photo of Dom from a trip I took to Di Fara in April that matches Polan’s sketch perfectly (minus the scally cap):

Di Fara Pizzeria

Regardless of what you think about the pizza at Di Fara, it’s hard not to love the perseverance of the man behind the counter.
