Illustrator & designer Jim Datz has launched a new website (http://jimdatz.com/) and online shop (http://www.neitherfishnorfowl.com/). Big fan of his work, especially the 4 images above that make up his city series. A lovely mix of map, illustration and typography, with a very mid-century feel about them! As has much of Jim’s work.
Shame the London print is sold out, very high on the list of posters I’d want framed on my wall!
I was commissioned to create a map of London that would deviate from the norm and represent the city in all it’s vibrant, historic and eccentric glory. We wanted to make something that was not aimed purely at tourists, and instead focus on the local aspect of each borough of London. The map includes social stereotypes, famous landmarks, historical information, the nightlife and other quirky facts that even locals might not know.
This was a feat of endurance, and I was spending 12-14 hours a day drawing, only stopping for short breaks to eat and make coffee!
If you need this on your wall, you can get it at Evermade.
The map lover in me is drooling.
Couldn’t resist posting this because of the top image, so nice! There are some animations too on their website; http://www.hudsonproperty.com/
