The Rolling Stones recently released their album, "Hackney Diamonds". Acknowledging its significance, I've integrated it into my Rolling Stones discography tube map.
For those unfamiliar with this project, I've been designing underground-style maps where each musician is represented as a tube line, tracing their journey through the band's albums.
This endeavour was born out of a period when my primary profession as a show designer was on hold due to global circumstances.
The process of creating these maps was reflective for me; it bridged my early days in live music as a roadie with my growing interest in data visualization.
Now, as the world adapts to a new normal and my show design work resumes, these maps continue to be an integral part of my creative expression. They stand as a testament to my journey and evolution as an artist.
