All the sketches were drawn using Rotring Isograph pens with.18, ..25 and .35 nibs on either drafting film or CS10 paper. The 3D mapping uses the same but the artwork is then imported onto the computer using Photoshop and the Freehand MX drawing package Colour lines, captions and fills are then added.
