I’ve finally got round to blogging these maps that I’ve been working on over the summer. I worked with the lovely people at Cactus to create 6 maps for Scottish Waterways Trust, to show the redevelopment of the Glasgow canal network. The maps depict a walking route alongside the canals featuring wildlife, historical sites and new developments en route.
The six separate maps were used in a walking brochure and I also joined up all the maps for a digital version of the walking route.
You can find out more about the revamped canal network HERE

I was asked by The Three Fishes Inn in Lancashire to paint a mural of a local walking route onto the wall of their restaurant. My film-maker brother, Alex Hyndman came along to document the project. But as this was my first mural I underestimated how long it would take to paint so he also had to get his hands dirty and help me paint the wall. Somehow between helping me with the painting he also managed to get enough footage together to make this lovely film! The Pub also includes original artwork by Rose Blake, Sarah Maycock and myself on the walls which can be seen on the film.
I worked with PickleJar Communications to illustrate a campaign for Newcastle University to help students with their journey to University. It’s called ‘On Course to Uni’ and by using facebook, twitter and tumblr they offer advice to students, answer questions and help them through exams and into university.
So my blog is usually just full of my work, but I though I ought to make an exception for family! My brother is a filmmaker and here’s his shiny new showreel. It’s ace! alexhyndman.co.uk
