Dissecting the Map

Illustrator Nick Hamilton will be producing new work for Ruinous Recollections. Nick is part of the Sketch City collective of urban artists, and will be looking at the Manchester links of Peter Mark Roget, who is famous for devising the Thesaurus. Roget first drafted his Thesaurus whilst a doctor in the city, using the lists he compiled as a personal therapeutic device. Drawing on influences from anatomical illustrations, linguistics and mapping Nick will produce illustrations that re-imagine Roget's Manchester in multi-layered personal narratives. Above is an example of Nick's bold graphic style.
