Explaining the world one sketch at a time

🎉 Welcome! Subscription confirmed

I'm Jono and I create all the sketchplanations you see. You just made me happy by joining the list. Thanks!​

Now the plan is to make you happy too, with interesting, surprising, clarifying and easy-to-absorb sketches that may, after enough of them, even have taught you a thing or two.

A few things to know about Sketchplanations:

👍 Don't miss the best ones

There are over 700 sketchplanations. Here are some collections you might enjoy.

🚀 Please use and share sketchplanations

I love it when people share sketches. For casual use, such as a presentation, article, Instagram post, or the like, please go ahead, just keep in the Sketchplanations name in the image and provide credit, with a link ideally. If you find yourself doing it a lot you might consider becoming a patron for a time, or buying me a coffee. There's a link on each sketch to download a high quality version if you need it.

If you want to sell sketchplanations or make them a core part of your business please contact me first. Check out the licence page for more details.

👋 I love your feedback and suggestions

Reader suggestions make the best sketchplanations. You can hit reply on any email and it comes straight to me at Please send on your thoughts or just say hi.

🙏 Consider supporting me

Some generous folks support me monthly which helps cover my costs and keep the sketchplanations coming. You'll get a few rewards too as a thank you. If at some point you decide you like Sketchplanations, or if they've helped you, please consider supporting me for a small monthly amount on Patreon. It makes a massive difference. It's also who I turn to first when trying out new things.

You can also buy me a coffee.

I plant 5 🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳 trees for every person buying a coffee and 5 🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳 trees every month through Eden Projects for every patron at any amount.

🎁 Sketchplanations make great prints and gifts

You can order cheap art prints, greeting cards, nice framed prints to go on the wall, even coasters of sketches you like. Perfect for sending to a friend, or, for the prettier ones, having something nice to look at. I added some pics at the bottom for the sort of thing. Still adding some of the back catalogue so if I'm missing one you'd like, just let me know.

Anyway, I'm thrilled to you have you onboard and it makes me want to explain more stuff!
