Excerpt of a wonderful map drawn by artist & illustrator Jenni Sparks. It’s a hand-drawn map of central and inner-city London. Tube/train lines, parks and rivers are coloured, everything else is shown in black-and-white. Buildings are all drawn in a 45-degree isometric style. Annotations reveal characteristics of an area that won’t appear on traditional maps. Dalston comes with a bicycle, plastic-framed glasses and a moustache. Canary Wharf is festooned with various currency symbols.
CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION Bold Bauhaus spirit / Dark greys bring a heavy depth to prints / Oversized geometric structures / Big stone blocks build intense concrete zones / Interlocking 3-D shapes / Matte grey terrazzo panels also mimicked in digital form / Minimal, moody and weight
