This Artist Drew A Picture Of London Every Day For A Year

Plenty of Instagrammers take a daily snap of their London lives. Tim King went one better, by sketching a picture for each day of 2016. He captured everything from the massive (Bowie's death) to the mundane (doing the washing up). His canvas is anything from an old receipt to a clay pipe, mudlarked from the Thames foreshore.

Below is a section of images from King's blog. He does make the odd foray into Leeds and Rotterdam, but we just about forgive him for that, as it's generally London-centric.

King is now looking to turn his images into a book. Find out more on his Kickstarter page.
