Illustrator Captures London’s Historic Pubs in a Series of Cut-Out Drawings
Great homage to London’s wonderful old pubs from illustrator Maxwell Tilse up on My Modern Met.
Earlier this year, we introduced you to London-based illustrator Maxwell Tilse, who combines his love of drawing with his passion for traveling. Originally from Sydney, Australia, the 23-year-old travels Europe, documenting each city he visits with beautifully detailed pen and ink sketches. Now, as he prepares to leave London after living there for two years, he has released a new series of cut-out drawings that depict the city’s oldest pubs.
“London is a city packed to the brim with historical wonders that are so easy to miss or pass by, unnoticed,” says Tilse. From the wedge-shaped Black Friar built in 1875, to the quaint Georgian architecture of the The Bricklayers Arms in Fitzrovia, Tilse captures the essence of London’s most quintessentially English watering holes—the oldest being The Old George, which has been in business since 1713.
