I created this illustrated map of Paris to accompany the Like a Local feature over on the Vogue website. The map features some of Chloe Malle’s favourite places, many of which I was previously unaware of. never having actually visited Paris myself
Hello. If you’ve visited the site before then you’re quite possibly wondering where all the content has vanished to…
Unfortunately, the site was recently attacked by hackers and I decided that the time had come to start with a fresh installation of WordPress.
I’ll be adding some of the posts in the next few weeks, so please bear with me and if you have any queries at all about my work then do get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
If this is your first visit and you’re wondering what the site is all about then a couple of pieces of my work can be seen below and you can find more at abigaildaker.com – my main portfolio site. I’m a professional artist and illustrator who specialises in illustrated maps and cityscape drawings.
Last year, I was commissioned to draw this large scale panoramic scene, based around a famous Chinese scroll painting. The image was interlaced with my Trafalgar Square panorama (below) and adapted by EDGE Architecture to fit in with their designs for the Bank of China’s new Visa Application Centre in the City of London.
Before starting work on the final illustration, I drew a smaller version to demonstrate how the traditional style of the silk painting could be adapted to match the linear style of the London panoramic:
It is always interesting to work on a panoramic drawing after spending several months on illustrated maps; the two types of work are very different, but compliment each other rather well. This was an especially interesting commission and you can see the completed design on the EDGE Architecture website here.
