It's not often you'll find a map of London with 'Van Gogh was here' written over a street in Stockwell.
But this quirky hand-drawn effort is not your standard guide to the city.
Illustrator Jenni Sparks spent two and half months sketching her creation, which includes colour-coded train lines - based on the actual geographic Tube map - snaking across cultural landmarks.
Among the other points of interest are markets, pubs, parks, along with tidbits of local history - hence the reference to the 19h-century Dutch painter, who lodged in south-west London for six months.
Then there's the giant bagel - to illustrate a famous 24-hour Jewish bakery in Brick Lane; and Del Boy's beloved Peckham, shown by his three-wheeler and catchphrase 'Lovely Jubbly'.
Miss Sparks has also included fun facts such as celebrity birthplaces and social stereotypes.
The 24-year-old artist, who used to work as a gallery assistant at Somerset house, said she wanted to create a cult map, including local knowledge that you would not be able to get from your average tourist map.
So she set off out on a research journey, collaborating with Evermade art prints, to find out about the culture in different parts of the city.
She said: 'I wanted to find out exactly what made all the different places in London unique.
'I asked a lot of Londoners what the area was known for, whether it was a cool, arty place, and found out what type of people lived in certain places.
'Shoreditch for example is quite a cool, arty place and there is a lot of people riding bicycles and generally wearing moustaches.
'West London has quite a lot of affluent people and in Clapham there are a lot of Australian people and nice families.
'In each place, I have done little lighthearted symbols to link with the general vibe of the place.'
Shoreditch in east London, full of trendy, fashionista types, has retro thick-rimmed black glasses and a bicycle drawn to mark its identity.
'On Brick Lane, there is a picture of a bagel, after Beigel Bake, a famous 24-hour bakery selling bagels baked in the traditional Jewish style.
In Lambeth, there is a speech bubble saying 'Doing the Lambeth walk - Oi', taken from the song The Lambeth Walk in the 1937 musical Me And My Girl.
