Brixton Hand Drawn Pen illustration
Brixton is an interesting place in London, it has a rich London culture, full of diversity and creativity. A few well known london Land marks include the Brixton academy with its rich music heritage, where it has been host to many international musicians, the Ritzy picture-house cinema, a great place to see a movie, as well as a place to socialise. Brixton Village, is a old and yet a new location, it has been home as a local market where local residents go to shop, and now has became a vibrant social place full of places to drink and eat, frequented by young Londoners.
I have been illustrating a series of maps in a hand drawn style, I like to draw in fine detail and try and capture as much information of the location and place. The brixton map includes many of Brixton’s, famous and well know landmarks and places. This is one of a series of maps I am investigating through drawings and sketches. I first draw each location, building up drawings and materials for my final composition. once all my drawings are completed. I make them digital and scan them into Adobe Photoshop, once everything is scanned, I like to play with composition of the illustration as a whole with all the drawing scans.
