The Melbourne Map

Back in September 2016 I began working on The Melbourne Map, A huge illustration of Victoria’s Capital city.

The original drawing measures at 1450 mm x 950 mm, The whole drawing process took just over two years to complete, it was initially drawn in lead pencil, then fixed in ink.

The Journey was a long and arduous one, a lot of time looking at the same piece of paper.
