A few months back I was asked to illustrate a map for University College Dublin campus. The maps main aim was to highlight some of the historic buildings and walks that can be found around the college campus. Being the biggest University in Dublin, you can expect that their are many amazing and historic buildings on the campus which were great objects of reference. Both the scale of the project and the range of buildings was very interesting as well as rewarding. The buildings ranged the 1800s to the present day so their designs varied which made it all the more exciting to illustrate.
Along with the buildings their are also a number of sculptures and other land marks which made the project a great exercise.

From a design prospective it was a challenge but also rewarding as the drawings were to be shown at different scales (one scale for the map and another for the cover).
overall I was really happy with how the project looks and I feel that my practice has benefited greatly from this project.

Thanks to Simon at Smoke and mirrors studio for his positive feedback and for giving me the opportunity to work with him on this project.

To me education is a leading out of what is already there in the pupil's soul. To Miss Mackay it is a putting in of something that is not there, and that is not what I call education. I call it intrusion.
