Brixton Hand Drawn Pen illustration
Brixton is an interesting and diverse place in London, it has a rich culture, full of diversity and creativity. A few well known London Landmarks include the Brixton Academy with its rich musical heritage, host to many international musicians, the Ritzy picture-house cinema, a great place to see independent movies, as well as a place to socialise. Brixton Village, is old and yet a new location, it has been home as a local market, and now has become a vibrant social place, frequented by young Londoners.
I have been illustrating a series of maps in a hand drawn style, capturing as much information of the location and place. The brixton map includes many of Brixton’s, well know landmarks and places. This is one of a series of maps I am investigating through drawings and sketches. I draw each location, building up drawings and materials for my final illustrated composition. once the drawings are completed. I like to play with cthe omposition of the illustration as a whole with all the drawing scans, to create one final piece.
