THEY are simple line sketches which, in just a few short weeks, have become somehow synonymous with Sheffield.

Architect visualiser Luke Prest’s drawings of landmarks such as Park Hill have proved so popular they will appear on 5,000 bags given to students in September.

Now, after The Diary reported on the 25-year-old’s success, it seems he’s escaping the city – and doing Derbyshire.

His Totally Sheffield collection – currently being exhibited at The Nichols Building in Shalesmoor – will be expanded to include eight landmarks from the neighbouring county.

Chatsworth House, Hardwick Hall and Chesterfield’s crooked spire all feature.

“I’ve spent a lot of time there – I think most people from Sheffield have,” says the father-of-two of Valley Road, Barlow. “I wanted to do something to celebrate that.”
