Introducing the Brockley Illustrated Map: A Handcrafted Journey Through My Neighbourhood

As a resident of Brockley, I've always been captivated by the unique charm and character of this vibrant neighbourhood nestled within the London Borough of Lewisham. To showcase its beauty and showcase its hidden gems, I've embarked on a creative endeavour to craft the Brockley Illustrated Map, a labor of love that combines traditional hand-drawn techniques with modern digital illustration.

Using my passion for art and my intimate knowledge of Brockley's streets, I meticulously sketched out the map in black and white, capturing the essence of the neighbourhoods diverse landmarks and well-known locations. From the iconic Brockley Barge to the cosy atmosphere of Good as Gold, Brocca, Joyce and Wickham Arms, every detail was carefully rendered to bring the map to life.

Once the initial sketch was complete, I harnessed the power of digital techniques to enhance and refine the illustration, adding depth and dimension to each feature. The result is a beautifully crafted map that seamlessly blends the old with the new, paying homage to Brockley's rich history while embracing its modern identity.
