They will not rest.

Editor's Pick

Publicis and Swiss bank UBS have teamed up with British artist Stephen Wiltshire for a campaign called "We Will Not Rest." As part of the campaign, Wiltshire, who is well known for his ability to draw panoramic landscapes, draws New York City entirely from memory. This spot, out of Publicis' New York arm, is a "making of" video, full of shots of Wiltshire walking around New York, sketching and drawing. Wiltshire, who has been diagnosed with autism, speaks in the background along with his sister who recounts his childhood and speaks about his abilities.

Wiltshire's drawing, which resulted in a 250-foot billboard, is now placed at a terminal at John F. Kennedy airport in New York to advertise UBS.
