Dave Gee spent two days drawing the impressive design, which features some of the landmarks and businesses in the heart of the town.

The 28-year-old has previously doodled other locations in the UK - including Manchester, Sheffield and York - and sells prints of the maps on his online shop.

Dave - who is originally from Chesterfield and now lives in Manchester - said: "Chesterfield is a special place to me and I'm proud of this doodle map of the town centre.

"It features attractions like the Crooked Spire and the Proact Stadium and lots of local businesses.

"I've tried to get as much on the map as possible and I hope people will enjoy looking at it and spotting places they know and love.

"I'm looking at doodling other areas of Chesterfield in the future - including the Brampton Mile."

Dave said he has always enjoyed drawing and 'fell into' doodling maps of UK towns and cities.

He added: "I lived in Berlin for a while and put on an exhibition at a gallery there.

"Someone told me one of my abstract pieces looked like a city from above and that's when I got the idea of doodling maps of places.

"I drew Manchester first and it went down very well and it all stemmed from there.

"I really enjoy doing what I do and my online shop is performing well."
