This week I thought I'd share a map I've created of Regents Park. I love making illustrated maps, figuring out what landmarks or items to include and arranging it all. I especially enjoy drawing places I know quite well (although it has been a while since I've been to this park, I must go back!)
I start work like this by making very detailed pencil sketches of the various components I'm going to include, at a larger scale, then simplifying them so they're not too complicated when I reduce them in scale and pull everything together for the final. Anyway enough waffle, here's the map
I knew I wanted to include a penguin for the zoo and I loved drawing that and the parrot especially. Who doesn't love a penguin?
Today I've spent playing around with inks in preparation for some new work, I have a lot of drawing planned for the weekend :). I hope you've had a great week and I'll be back soon.
