This week’s Sketchy Saturday top 10. We don’t run the Sketchy Saturday every week because we have to wait until the right sketches come in. We take pride in posting a rich diversity of hand drawing talent as we want to celebrate the many different styles that are sent into us. We don’t just want generic sketches, we want sketches that are unmistakably yours and an extension of who you are and what you can offer the world. Student, professional or hobbyist, everyone gets treated the same when it comes to Sketchy Saturday, making it a unique melting pot of passion, creativity and skills. Enjoy this week’s Sketchy Saturday top 10! 1o. by Elisabeth Lindman garden designer / architect at Lustgård Trädgårdsdesign, founder and chairman of the Swedish Society for Garden designers, Sweden

 “This is a sketch I made as part of a big project in a private garden in Sweden. This young couple traveled a lot and wherever they went in the world they bought them self a hammock / cot as a souvenir. But in their garden they had no big trees and nowhere to place them. Therefore, I designed this sheltered garden room with poles for the hammocks. Easy to change and replace them. A place to relax / hang with friends. The sketch is made really quick in the garden, just to illustrate my idea”. 9. by Eva Suellen de Oliveira Fortaleza, Architecture and Urban Planning student, in Brazil

“My motivation was to represent a landscape project that I was working on. Last year I was in USA (Kansas State University), living and studying as an exchange student. There, I took this Landscape class and I fell in love with it. So, in this project I was told to make a landscape project of one part of the Manhattan City Park. I wanted to make an expressive drawing, just with ink and showing the shadows of the space. I made it in USA on tracing paper and ink”. 8. by Richard Hodgetts, director of Vista Landscape Studio

“The existing garden comprised a series of stepped terraces with a little useable space. The brief was to create a more useable garden with a large terrace to the rear for entertainment. The proposed garden was created by using cut and fill and creating a large flat grass area with a glass balustrade at the end to allow for views towards London. The lower garden had a seating area, fire pit and bbq area along with a children’s play Area. The perspective shows the lower garden area”. 7. by  Djordje Pralica

“The sketch was a conceptual design proposal for a mixed use development, as part of the overall Tianjin Redevelopment Masterplan in Tianjin China. It is a preliminary expression of form + place-making as a synthetic gesture towards the overall development master plan. Materials used were artline 0.6 for building outline definition, and artline 0.4 for architectural articulation, landscape and context. Drawing was done on butter paper”. 2. by Lily Mank
