Why Underground Maps?

During lockdown, I daydreamed about impossible journeys. My mapping of such in my head went a bit weird. I started thinking about tube maps, and how they could help us navigate other non-places.

Via social media, I was challenged to map The Fall's studio album history as an underground map. It worked! Their studio albums had an incredible journey to show, as do others - from Bowie through to The Who, and others.

My Bruce Springsteen albums line-up map is now included in his official archive in the USA.

My 'Plot Lines' designs cover films and novels. On these each tube line represents a character, each interchange when they, well, interchange, along with individual 'stops' in the development of the plot.

In addition, I produce tube maps of POLITICS, F1, FOOTBALL, and WAYS TO .. all being added to all the time.
