Drawn On Real Life


2016 was a monumental year. From celebrity deaths to the surprise EU referendum result and major moments in politics. But what did it feel like on an everyday level?

Each day Tim King made time to observe, experience and draw everyday situations on the spot, from the mundane to the magnificent. Using reportage illustration, Tim captured the attitudes, opinions and atmosphere of daily life. Drawn using a variety of materials ranging from scraps of paper to pancakes and pizzas, what these images have in common is the ability to communicate personal stories.

By doing one drawing a day, a year long visual narrative is created. ‘Drawn On Real Life’ recalls not how history remembers last year, but how we lived it.

This is the everyday story of 2016.
