Hand-Drawn Maps of London: City Centre

handdrawnnorthlondon.jpg

This week’s map comes from Anika Mottershaw, who’s ambition knows no bounds. Not content with sketching one particular neighbourhood, Anika’s taken the whole of Zone 1, and then some, for her hand-drawn cartography. For reasons best known to her, Bloomsbury nestles in the shadow of a giant dinosaur, Pimlico is inhabited by ‘monocles and such’, and Rotherhithe has a giant snail problem. Brilliant work!

You may want to view this one at full size.

We’re still after further instalments, so please unsheathe your felt tips, sharpen your pencils and send us a doodle of your own neighbourhood to tips@londonist.com

Previously: Hampstead Heath, Notting Hill, King’s Cross and Islington, Stoke Newington.

    This reminds me of Stephen Walker’s work which I spotted at the London Art Fair

    Don’t let Anika’s utter brilliance put you off making your own hand-drawn map of a London area – even if you have the penmanship of a goat in mittens. It’s the ideas and observations that are most important.

    Stunning! Well done: Anika Mottershaw. Looking forward to seeing it live and in its full beauty at the Museum of London next year.
