Original ballpoint pen drawing of a raven on an original 1988 Godfrey Edition (second edition) of a 1914 Ordnance Survey map of Peckham, London, UK.
On a gloomy winter's morning I went for a potter around a local town which has a lot of antique, vintage and retro shops and came across a few reproduction old Ordnance Survey maps and had to buy them. I have a bit of a weakness for old books and maps like some women have for shoes. At the time I had no idea what I was going to do with them. It was a little while later after making some sketches of birds in ballpoint pen (a much underrated drawing tool in my opinion) that the idea of a raven in flight, as if flying over Peckham, struck me.
It was quite nerve wracking at first and I felt quite guilty for scribbling away over such a wonderful thing as a map! I soon got into the swing of it though and am very happy with the end result. I have several ideas brewing for my next ones.
