- Hand-drawn Map of London
- I was commissioned by the online art print company, Evermade, to create a map of London that would deviate from the norm and represent the city in all it's vibrant, historic and eccentric glory. We wanted to make something that was not aimed purely at tourists, and instead focus on the local aspect of each borough of London. The map includes social stereotypes, famous landmarks, historical information, the nightlife and other quirky facts that even locals might not know.
It was an incredibly intense project, the sheer amount of research and gathering opinions and local knowledge was a huge task in itself. Once we had gathered all the information we could find and had visited each corner of London, I then started drawing it out. This was a feat of endurance, and I was spending 12-14 hours a day drawing, only stopping for short breaks to eat and make coffee!
It was a massive learning curve as I am fairly new to my career as an illustrator, but I thoroughly enjoyed pushing myself and I feel that I have learned a lot from the project, both in my drawing ability and my knowledge of the city that I now live in.
