This Thrillhouse-based gif is by London-based illustrator David Ryan Robinson, and I feel like it’s an accurate depiction of my everyday life.
Some of y'all have probably heard of him, but for those of you that haven’t – he’s draws some hella stylish stuff that’s just weird in the best way. He has a quite a sense of humor as well, and is good at communicating it visually. Currently he’s with Cartoon Network.
London Zoo Illustrated is a limited first edition (exclusive to 250 copies) silkscreen print using oil-based inks onto 280gsm recycled paper. The prints measure 514 x 580mm and look perfect mounted to fit a standard 70x70cm frame. Each print comes signed, numbered and embossed with the ZSL London Zoo logo.
25% of the sale of each print will be donated to the Zoological Society of London (ZSL). ZSL is made up of a unique combination of scientific research, worldwide conservation and outstanding educational facilities at ZSL London Zoo and ZSL Whipsnade Zoo. ZSL’s mission is to promote and achieve the worldwide conservation of animals and their habitats.
Nine months ago I started drawing London Zoo. Starting with the gorillas and a few spectators, this rapidly became, what is now, an accurate detailed map of the zoo. When you look closely you’ll be able to see every animal you can find there. Each one of the hundreds of individually drawn people is different to the next, each with their own personality. As you can imagine after months and months of drawing and studying, I now know the zoo like the back of my hand!
ZSL London Zoo and ZSL Whipsnade Zoo is a registered charity in England and Wales No. 208728

Due to popular demand, I have printed a second edition of the Hand-Drawn maps of London. Details below:
In 2012 I put up for sale a two-toned silk screen print Map of London. They were a limited edition of 100 and got picked up by the press and featured in a few magazines/books. These sold out almost instantly. Fast-forward two years and I have decided to sell a smaller second edition run for those who missed out the first time round. These newer prints are very similar to the first edition, except the secondary print colour has more of a yellow tone.
The print itself is on A2 200gsm cream paper, all comes numbered (edition of 50) and signed by myself (David Ryan Robinson). The print will be sent in a hard tube to save it from damage. Any questions please ask. This map includes almost all of London - Zones 1 & 2
