A map of Brighton from the latest discoveries

This map was hand lettered and based on a map I’d done a couple of years ago.  I’ve adapted it slightly adding annotations – mixing local history with personal history and knowledge.  Maps are amazing, always changing and showing the times and culture of the mapmaker themselves…

Draw Brighton

 

Oli Spleen. Performance poet.

Portraits completed at “Draw Brighton” at Artist Residence in biro, ink and oil pastel.  I like the challenge of committing to the line and not having a chance to erase any mark I make.
