I painted this world map on my bedroom wall in 2004 after I left school, and before I went off to university. It took me about 2 straight weeks to complete, and was one of the most enjoyable paintings I’ve ever done. There are a few geographical mistakes, around Iraq and Turkey in particular, but I was drawing freehand from a mini-atlas!
Lots of people asked me whether I managed to do it in 4 colours. Unfortunately not, its 5 – I already felt I should get out more!
