It sounds a bit random.

But it’s because I notice things.

I notice when Grand Designs is on the telly.

I notice when there’s some clever architect showing off some impressive drawings.

Asking us to imagine her or his vision.

I notice not just what the drawing is of.

I notice the drawing itself.

The actual pen marks, I mean.

The buildings.

The landscape.

The people.

The trees.


I see it as an art form, you see.

These beautiful little sketches.

Perfectly executed.

Yet seemingly so effortless.


And sketchy.

I just like them.


So I was really interested when architects Foster and Partners decided to help us with tree drawing.

Need a new hobby?

Try this.
