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…

This map was done for the White Night Festival 2010 in Brighton.  I project managed a through the night life drawing event alongside other arts events in the city.  Enlightenment involved a static theatre of life drawing and 3 hand painted, bespoke carts that were pulled to different locations in the streets opening up theatrically to reveal models inside.  Drawing packages were handed out to people in the streets who were then encouraged to have a go at life drawing.  Each cart had a different theme.  We tied the event up with Brighton animators networking group who also used the Enlightenment as inspiration and this map also appeared in their publications.
