New Soho Map
Hey – A couple of months ago I was delighted to be asked to do the SohoCreate festival map for 2015 – illustrating the ever-changing Soho, central London. While trying to document some later developments, we – that’s me, SohoCreate and sponsors Barr Gazetas – also wanted to make sure that Soho’s historic landmarks and a whisper of the more colourful aspects of Soho past and present were still there. It’s out in the latest SohoCreate magazine which is available In Town.
I’ve done many maps now, the North London Cultural Map, the Kentishtowner map including one for Prince of Wales road. You can buy a limited edition print of KT map at my Big Cartel online shop, in A2 size for £65 inc. UK delivery. There are examples of other mapwork and the option to commission a bespoke map should you wish. You can also contact me using the contact link (which now works) above.
