Hand drawn elements being used in web design is not really a new thing, but the trend is gathering speed, especially with young, modern bloggers and website owners, designers and developers.
A sketch included in a design, whether it is well-formed or scruffy, will catch the eye almost immediately upon opening the web-page.
Therefore, a hand drawn element is a great way of attracting the attention of your visitors to something you particularly want them to notice.
Some of these elements we are showcasing here are ‘doodles’, some are quite probably photo manipulations, others are digital art, and then there are some that don’t fall into any of those categories, but are still very appealing.
