Chelmsford by Diana Mayo

Relocating to a new town can be both exciting and challenging. On top of the stressful move are the practical tasks of learning your new environment. Diana got around this by compiling a map of her new home, Chelmsford, and mapping all of the new and exciting places around her. 

"I moved to Chelmsford a few years ago from London, and was keen to find new creative people and places. I also recently opened was an independent book shop called Just Imagine story centre, where I helped to establish an illustrators group.
We set ourselves illustration projects to critique and increase our portfolio work. One brief was to celebrate Chelmsford as an exciting place to visit, especially with it's new city status.
This map was my personal response, logging all the great the places to find. And they are all relatively in the correct position, honest!"
