10 x 10 Drawing the City of London

This is the second year that I've been invited to take part in Article 25's 10 x 10 auction. Article 25 globally provides shelter and housing. (25th article of the universal declaration of human rights housing and shelter is a basic human right - see)
This year the grid stretched from St Paul's down to the New Kent Road - my section was around Cannon Street (D2)

At every corner I had something completely different, Georgian house next door to modern curves, building, cranes.... so it made for one heck of a challenge.



To start with I decided to embroider on paper, but that just didn't work - then I did this...
the reaction from the husband was pretty silent so I knew that wasn't working then I cut both pieces up to create this...
