Sometimes we get to know a place in life so well, having traveled it’s streets and alleys hundreds of times, that we can literally see its map in our minds eye. This collection of drawings is just that, a sample of maps drawn from only memory. Some were created with great attention to detail, remembering shorelines and mountains, while others where scribbled out after a pint or two at the local pub. Click on the links below each image to see just how close the artist came to re-creating the place.
