Lockdown in Watopia
Prints of the artwork now available here
I’ve been spending a fair bit of time here in recent weeks - Watopia, a virtual world in the Zwift cycling game.
It has everything from an active volcano, the scorching desert of Fuego Flats, to prehistoric forests of Titans Grove. Then further afield, the snowy peaks of Col du Zwift, the Mayan Jungle and on to the epic climb up Alpe du Zwift.
Fortunately I kept hold of my old turbo trainer from my cycling days, and it’s given me the means to keep the fitness up during the lockdown here in the UK. I linked the game up to my trainer and I’ve been pedalling my way round the numerous routes.
After a couple of rides I thought it could be fun to create one of my hand drawn maps of this virtual world. It lends itself well to the style, with all sorts of landscape and features to illustrate. Even the odd dinosaur in Titans Grove.
The original artwork was created on an A3 hand made recycled cotton paper sheet from Khadi papers.
