Mickleover by Jake Richardson
Derby University illustration student, Jake Richardson, sent us this awesome map of his home suburb of Mickleover. Jake used the project as a way of developing his illustration style, as well as discovering more about somewhere he [thought] he knew so well.
"In this map I decided to record my local suburb of Mickleover in the UK. To do this I recorded many points of interest that indicated the character of this area. Also through this process I’ve found new locations and gained new insight into where I live. I’ve also used this as an opportunity to develop my method of producing illustrations; this involved creating each layer individually and layering them over one another."
