Welcome to Life Sketched, an illustrated blog about day to day life, the good and the bad, all accompanied by sketches and drawings.

This blog started out¬†following on from a one-year graphic design course I took in 2005-16. Throughout this year I realised I enjoyed the pen/paintbrush to paper aspects of the course much more than the did digital side. So, I’ve decided to keep going with what I enjoy doing and to not go through with two more years of ¬†Graphic Design school. This blog is part of my motivation to keep sketching, drawing, painting, and hopefully, improving! I’m very much a beginner, trying to learn as I go, ¬†experimenting with materials and just enjoying the practice. I haven’t found a subject I’m drawn to yet or distinctive style but I’m hoping that through keeping up this blog up that will develop.

Comments, tips, positive criticism all welcome!
