52 Delightful Drawings

There's a Sketch Here for Every Week of the Year

— January 25, 2010 — Art & Design
The art of drawing may be deteriorating due to the rising use of computers, but that doesn't mean there isn't any hope for sketching. These 52 delightful drawings show that artists are hard at work showing what they can do with pencils, charcoal and chalk. Click through the slideshow to see a wide range of delightful drawings.

Implications - Illustrations have taken on many interesting styles over the year. Graffiti works have become more prevalent due to Banksy's success, while minimalist works are becoming more popular with the "less is more" approach becoming a dominant influence. Even though the digital age may have become a new artistic medium, the old methods aren't going away any time soon.
