James St North Map, Hamilton

It's done! I printed it, it looks super pretty and the paper feels so good. And it's on Etsy! 

I want to take a minute to thank Hamilton for being so welcoming. People have been absolutely great about a newcomer from Toronto joining the fold. I don't get out of the studio that often, but when I do I ALWAYS seem to run into someone I know (how is that possible? I feel like I only know 5 people. Are they just always on James St. North?). 

As I Draw: Roncesvalles Map (Finished!!)

You know what makes me feel awesome? Finishing something, framing it, and sending it out into the world. Or in this case, framing it and walking it down to Gurts where Matt praised it over and over again and is going to sell it to unsuspecting people who come in to buy frozen yogurt. Of course, this project isn't REALLY done since I am working on Part 2 (Fern to Geoffrey) pretty much nonstop. I can't help it. Now that I have gotten started, I am steamrolling ahead.

As I Draw: Roncesvalles Map (Part 2)

Plugging away at this! You can see I am working on one block at a time, mostly to save sanity. This is the intersection of Pearson and Roncesvalles in Toronto. I live a few blocks from here! It's been a really great project so far. I recognize that it's a huge undertaking and am trying to remember to not become obsessive. So that I can sleep. And eat things. And do my day job.

As I Draw: Roncesvalles Map (Part 1)

It's the first block of a map of Roncesvalles Ave (my neighbourhood). The bottom layer is a meshed together screenshot from Google Maps, the second and third layers are pink guidelines to help with my perspective and sketching out of the houses and buildings before I complete them with the top layer of black. In the final drawing, there will be many many blocks and all the under layers will be erased.
