Are your stick figures a bit sticky? How to Draw like a Cartoonist to Aid your Graphic Recording

  • Do you have trouble coming up with a suitable image for an idea?
  • Are your stick figures a bit sticky?
  • Do you need to put some Fun into your Puns?

Then maybe we can help.

With over 40 years between us in cartoons, caricatures, animation and comics, Alex and Matt have been drawing funny pictures for print, web and TV, and now, through their business Drawnalism bring these skills to the wonderful world of Graphic Recording (or whatever you want to call it – we won’t judge you).

We’ll take you through the steps of creating a character, structuring an image, coming up with visuals for tricky subjects, showing you how to sketch in marker quickly and loosely without a safety net and much more besides.

Through a series of games, tricks, tips, and hands-on advice, they’ll help you draw your practice together.


Alex Hughes and Matt Buck have been drawing all their professional lives.

Starting out as cartoonists, caricaturists and illustrators in the UK, they have over 40 years combined experience drawing for newspapers, magazines, TV and elsewhere.

They formed Drawnalism back in 2009 to offer their drawing skills as Graphic Recorders at conferences and meetings.

They’ve worked all across Europe and beyond; and are as comfortable with pen on paper as stylus on tablet.

They have also been known to produce illustrations and whiteboard-style video.
