I was commissioned by Solent Showcase Gallery to design and paint this huge illustrated map of the city of Southampton. This also included elements of hand painted lettering for the various place names.
This big colourful installation covered the entire surface of the gallery floor and was created for the ‘Make Your Mark’ exhibition, an alternative mapping project which encourages community engagement by allowing visitors to the exhibition to add their own stories to the map. The exhibition will run for 2 months and over time the collection of stories from the local community will grow, developing into a large collaborative typographical piece.
The Make Your Mark project was also supported by Ordnance Survey, the national mapping agency of the UK.
