East London Lines

In 2018, hundreds of thousands of people will travel on the east London Line. Sadly, the majority of them will have their eyes downcast, focused on books or phones. Engulfed by daily routine, they will overlook some of east London's most exciting shifts of light and pattern. 


As an illustrator born and raised in Hackney, I love to uncover the lines of the East London Line - the bold, geometric patterns and colours which make this one of the most visually interesting railways in our city. 

Departing from Haggerston, my local station, I captured a few of my favourite sites - from the rhythmic stripes of station steps to the repeated shadows created by platform seats.
