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 Landmarks include the Brixton Academy with its rich musical 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 socialize. Brixton Village is old and yet a new location, it has been home as a local market where local residents go shopping, and now has become 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-known 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 the composition of the illustration as a whole with all the drawing scans.
