I had an idea. 

The idea is that I'm going to draw a fictional street map of a part of a city, based loosely on areas of various cities and towns I have connections with. The map itself would be done in ink using traditional methods on paper, and then coloured using GIMP.

A rough draft of the street layout will be up sometime soon.

However, I'd like this to be a collaborative effort to some extent so I'm throwing it open to you. I need your ideas for buildings, locations, things to put on the map, but most of all Street Names!

They can be names based on your own hometown or area, your art, your life, your favourite TV shows or books. I'll stick as many on the final map as possible, and credit you in the description.

There are only two qualifications:

1. Ideas should avoid causing offence.

2. I'm basing the map mainly on the cities of Belfast, Dundee and Manchester. So ideas should broadly fit into an Irish/Scottish/English context. That still gives you plenty of Scope though.

This is a bit open ended at the moment,

Comment below.

Some ideas to get you started:

Penwell Rise
Columba Court
Whiskey Street
Champagne Avenue
Thornbank Road

Artistry Avenue

~irishhighlander. Now with 20% more Irish-Scottishness.

I've been floating around dA for a wee while now. I'm not really an Artist. I used to write stories. I like to doodle. Sometimes I even take photographs. Mostly I use dA for looking at other people's excellent work.
I like the unusual.
