I am going on holiday!


Tomorrow I start my journey to Budapest, Hungary. I am hoping to document this trip for my residency in a variety of ways.

Firstly, I am going to take inspiration from the a book I recently purchased called “From Here to There: A Curious Collection from the Hand Drawn Map Association”. This book is, as the title suggests, a collection of hand drawn maps. I have included some of my favourites below. I hope to produce some hand drawn maps that show various places I visit while on my travels.


Secondly , I plan to continue to take inspiration from the work of Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec and their Dear Data project. Beckie outlined the project in a previous post. I will use inforgraphics to record what I see and experience while I am away. I will take inspiration from some of the categories that Lupi and Posavec used such as clocks, laughter and indecision.


Also, I am hoping to work on drawing techniques that I have been introduced to this year on my foundation. These include continuous line and blind drawing. Below are some images I have found for inspiration of architectural continuous line drawings.


As well as these individual challenges I will be working on several collaborative projects with my fellow recipients of the Jane Phillips Award Ben, Beckie and Tegan. More to follow on this !
