Kent University Philanthropy Map

The paper
‘Scratch’, ‘dip’, or ‘quill’ pen.

I don’t like sketching out in pencil first, I prefer to dive in with ink. Riskier but a more enjoyable and spontaneous/natural line results.

A scant pencil crosshair is enough for me to work out the composition on this trick circle.

Have a Gander were recently commissioned to provide a hand-drawn map for local University of Kent at Canterbury. The map features on the inside cover flap of a book on Philanthropic Gifts to the university over the past 50 years. Work-in-progress ink and watercolour work on ‘The Langton’ 300gsm ‘Grain Fin’ paper.
