This week’s guest poster is the wonderful Nigel Peake, an illustrator with a great affinity for mapping and architecture.
‘Billboards is a new collection of around 30 drawings depicting a series of billboards for a fictional city full of fictional sheds. It is gathered together into a little zine of assorted paper (this can be bought through my website). It is like an appendix to the Sheds book published earlier this year by Analogue. Essential reading for this: the ‘Decorated Shed’ chapter from Learning from Las Vegas by Robert Venturi.’
Nigel tells us he’s been trawling his computer for images to be showcased on his newly updated website, coming very soon.
