Get Lost in Helen Cann's Hand-Drawn Maps

I got introduced to Helen Cann's work via twitter the other day and was immediately side-tracked by her crazy detailed hand-drawn city map of Brighton (see above). It gets better, visit the map on her site and it comes complete with rollovers from both a local and personal history of all the nooks and crannies in the town's streets and avenues.



Also as immersive (and impressive) is the drawn map she did of the history of coffee houses that began in Exchange Alley (London), starting in 1652. Once again, you can rollover most anything on the map for detailed captions that are sometimes informative and sometimes quirky.

Helen's work is a beautiful nod to the analog world, as it's "...entirely hand produced, mainly in watercolour, coloured pencil, graphite and collage." I'm especially in love with this time-lapse video of her painting up Youthtopia.





You can find more of her works at: helencannfineart.com and helencann.co.uk

Member Spotlight: Alvaro Diaz-Rubio



What luck. Here I am digging around our website for someone to feature when I stumble upon the work of Alvaro Diaz-Rubio and quickly discover he's an incredible artist and illustrator from South Florida that actually studied right down the street from our studio. It's a nice coincidence when that happens.

Alvaro's art takes me back to a time of vintage comics and being 13 years old trading gnarly Garbage Pail Kids cards outside the mall's convenience store. It's clear he draws all day long and even claims he'll most likely doodle on the inside of his coffin. His illustrations have appeared in publications like the Village Voice, LA Weekly and the New Times. Help me welcome Alvaro to Doodlers Anonymous and you can always check out more of his work at his website, Operation Underwear.

For something extra special, scroll down for a great time-lapse video of Alvaro drawing a quirky rendition of his lineage.
