Maps are an interesting motif of a journey,however I think they add too much business in a lot of pieces,and so detail has to be cut out of the subject,such as tone and shadowing in this piece shown. It represents a physical journey throughout a place, and provides a detailed canvas,however I do not think I would carry this idea forward to a final piece.

Drawing by Frank Auerbach, I really appreciate his use of line, particularly the thick black lines which partially gave me the idea to use them within my own work
