Map Drawing Atlas

I took a break from my Map Drawing Series to reassess it and figure out where it was going but I realised to do this and push through it I should go with the flow and let the work figure it out. So I found a great vintage road atlas of Great Britain and thought it'd be great to use it as a sketchbook for ideas. I've decided to just use black pen and I like how I can use either the 2 maps together or apart. See some of my other map drawings here.

New York & London T-shirts

New York & London are two of my favourite cities and here's a little t-shirt collection I've made for them. There's streetsigns, signposts & streetlamps, a pretzel & a food stand, monuments, the chrysler building & a lion, a walk man & a queen's guard. You can get your favourite (I think mine is the walk man, which is from Brooklyn Bridge!) or collect all of them over at Redbubble.

Casablanca & No Country for Old Men Posters

Not long ago I finally saw Casablanca and couldn't help but notice all the hats, my Nanna would've too as she was a milliner with her own hat shop. So I created this 'The hats of Casablanca' poster. In a completely different genre 'No country for old men' is one of my current favourite films, Javier Bardem is unbelievable and I can't forget the opening scene which inspired this homage poster.

Art Quotes & Pinterest

I have books and tons of scraps of paper filled with all sorts of great quotes about life, courage, being yourself, purpose, meaning etc and also tons about art. So I've decided to get a few down on the screen as it were and make them into poster images. I did this one a while back 'No feeling is final' and it must have planted a seed. Also I've joined Pinterest where you can pin any inspiration you find on the web and collect it onto pinboards, see all mine here and here is my illustrated quotes pinboard. What are your favourite quotes?
