Tim King: A Drawing a Day

Work / Illustration

Illustration: Tim King is doing an “A Drawing a Day” project to trump all others!

“A Drawing a Day” projects can often come a dime a dozen in the creative industries, but it’s very seldom that anybody actually sticks to them, or that they’re as brilliant as this one.

Tim King is a designer and illustrator, and he’s 102 days into his 365-day daily sketch project. Executed in a number of colours and with no small dose of humour, wit and a degree of observation which excludes all but the most dedicated of people-watchers, his effort so far has been commendable. So far we’ve seen some dodgy jokes, lots of trips to the pub and a comic-book like narrative created through captions that does well to resemble London’s noisy chaos. Even better, many of the existing sketches bear the kind of marks, stains and tears that serve as “evidence” of the integrity Tim King is keeping with the project. We can’t wait to see what kind of state they’re in by day 364…
