The project

So some of you may remember that the year before last I set about creating a map of London (This is pictured on the title screen). My aim is to create a Oxford map which will become a Limited edition Giclee Print. It will be sold in galleries as a piece of artwork rather than a poster print and celebrate the historical beauty of the city.

How you can help ?

The reason I am asking people to pledge money for me to do this is pure and simple, it takes an enormous amount of time! So by pledging even a small amount of money on a pack of cards you will be funding me to spend time creating this map. The London project took 3 months to complete, but has proved to be worth the hours of work. It was published last year entitled 'Mapped' as part of a book of Illustrated maps of London by The Londonist  / and AA. I am hoping my new map will also get the chance to be seen by lots of map lovers!

Why do it? 

So why do it I hear you say? well its my belief that the art of documenting a place is fundamentally really interesting...! Oxford , like London is a place of amazing history , but like every other place in the world it is ever-changing, my job as an illustrator is to mark those changes and create a piece of lasting artwork that will reference the time Oxford is in now. Like the London map I hope to add enough detail that as a viewer you can really feel connected to all the roads that perhaps you have had experience walking down. So in essence creating a personal map of the city.

So pledge just a small amount today and receive a beautiful map in time to give as a gift for Christmas. You can see my progress by following me on instagram.... rebeccahowardartist

Many thanks for your support!

Risks and challenges

I am aware that the only real risk to this project is that for some reason I can't complete the map on time.... but I think that is a very small risk so please support me!
