Hand drawn maps of Oxfordshire villages

29 Oct 2010 / 1 Comment / in about art, Oxfordshire

When I began sketching my first map in June, I never anticipated that just a few months later I would be publishing a triptych of hand drawn maps.

First came the map of Eynsham. After I’d finished it , I wanted to do more, so I set my sights on nearby Stanton Harcourt. Again, this was such a joy to draw, I thought I’d have a crack at something even more complex: Woodstock.

The maps are drawn with genuine love for the places, which are the backdrop to my life, as I have close personal connections with all three of these small west Oxfordshire villages. Each one is my love letter to it.

The maps are not to scale, they are my personal response to the things I know about each village, the things I love and think are important. That said, they are accurate enough to be used to navigate your way around each place.

Copies of the maps are now for sale in my online shop or if you prefer,  email me. Each map is printed on a sheet of A2 (420 x 594 mm / 16.5 x 23.4 inches) and you can get them in two ways:

  • folded in a full colour cover (like those pictured above) for £4.99 each +P&P, or
  • flat printed on high quality silk paper and signed by me, suitable for framing for £12.99 each +P&P

    Jane, these are fantastic and I’m the guy that doesn’t get ART! Put me down for one of each of the signed flats … now that’s something worth coming home for
