Make Maps

I recently completed this drawing for Adam Hayes’ Make maps project, that you can read about and see some beautifully illustrated maps at www.make-maps.blogspot.com. My map is the place where I had the most fun I have ever had. Kind of a place where I felt I belonged when I was young.

Pirates Deep

When I was 5 years old there was only one place to have your birthday, it was called Pirates Deep, an indoor Pirate themed adventure play centre underneath one of the arches on Brighton seafront. It was a childs paradise of ball pits, nets, slides, inflatable characters, obstacles, bouncy things, ropes, tunnels and padded Velcro shapes. Looking back it seemed like it was invented before health and safety, as there didn’t appear to be any rules you could really just go mental. It isn’t there anymore.
