I decided that it was time to just choose one project and get to grips with it. I’m way behind with ALAW so that seemed to be the logical choice
I had been trying to explore a fictional place through narrative but after a while I came to the conclusion that such a small format was just too difficult to fit the words in without them looking clumsy and badly spaced. I will develop the narrative idea further but not for this project.
So I started looking at old maps and started to play with black and white.
I finally chose one from 1845 when the town was starting to develop as an industrial area. There are streets and buildings on here that I recognise.
This is what I’ve posted so far
