“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.
