Stoke Newington Map Drawing Metropolitan Magazine
Stoke Newington Map Drawing Metropolitan Magazine. A little village inside the capital, Stoke Newington has been rated Londoner’s favourite shopping street. But there’s plenty besides the hip clothing and lifestyle boutiques to love, including a crop of new restaurants and North London’s biggest slice of greenery, Clissold Park.
The Map was drawn in individual sections. First, the spot illustrations were drawn using a fine liner ink pen. The streets were drawn individually as well. I started to place the spot illustrations onto the street layout. Once the composition of the map-drawing was working well I introduced the typography into the illustration. The Location names were illustrated under the locations and the text and to finalise the illustration I added the street names and some colour to the illustration.
