Excerpt of a wonderful map drawn by artist & illustrator Jenni Sparks. It’s a hand-drawn map of central and inner-city London. Tube/train lines, parks and rivers are coloured, everything else is shown in black-and-white. Buildings are all drawn in a 45-degree isometric style. Annotations reveal characteristics of an area that won’t appear on traditional maps. Dalston comes with a bicycle, plastic-framed glasses and a moustache. Canary Wharf is festooned with various currency symbols.
Map portraits drawings by artist Ed Fairburn this is one of my most favourite portraits because it isnt a very simple portrait but it almost tells a really deep story and shows alot of expressions on the woman's face, also the lines in the picture add to the story
