Stoke Newington Map Drawing Metropolitan Magazine
Tucked away within the bustling heart of London lies Stoke Newington, a vibrant enclave often hailed as Londoners’ favourite shopping destination. Yet, its charm extends far beyond the trendy boutiques, encompassing an array of new dining establishments and the expansive green expanse of Clissold Park in North London.
The creation of this Stoke Newington map for Metropolitan Magazine was a meticulous process undertaken in separate stages. Initially, I crafted intricate spot illustrations using a fine-line ink pen, while each street received its dedicated attention. As these elements came together, I carefully integrated them into a harmonious composition, ensuring the map flowed seamlessly. Typography was then added to label locations, and the finishing touches included street names and a dash of colour.
