Abstract / Summary

This presentation explores the use of virtual travel as a visual research tool for illustration. It will discuss the experience of drawing from Google Maps, Earth and Street View and the opportunities and limitations that drawing from a photographed world can bring. In relation to the online workshop series Sketchbook eVenture, the presentation will consider the benefits of drawing together as a community of virtual travellers, utilising Google map features such as the 3D option and timeline tool to transcribe landscapes, learn, practice, and discover.
