Natural gestures, beautiful of expressions, art mediums, sketching, drawing, painting.

They are educational means, they are expression options, they are opportunities to beautify our world through simple means, lines spread across the notebook, sketches that germinate into extraordinary piece of art in our very hands; inspiring and easy cool things to draw that can make a difference in this world.

From architects to painters and even musicians, a sketch, a line can represent a multitude of items, a world illustrated on paper, one with the chance to become so much more.
In the following rows, extraordinary sketches of artists all across the globe have been curated. Dense, heavy to draw illustrations are there just as few lines arranged by intuition to describe a scene, a building, a landscape are present.
They are different, each one sends a different message, each one portrays their setting extraordinarily differently, we invite you to cast a glance and surge inspiration.

We interpret these as a completely epic yet different way of drawing surrounding reality, the regular drawing ideas and things to draw that one imagines are reinterpreted by an artistic background or experience.
