Sketchy Hounds was founded by Liz, an illustrator and designer who has been living in Cornwall, and since 2008, has been working on a range of design and illustration projects with her customers. In 2020, Sketchy Hounds was born out of Liz’s love of drawing dogs.

The idea came about after she rescued a dog called Denzel (a Lurcher x Springer Spaniel) and seeing his quirky ways started sketching him. From this, grew Sketchy Hounds, with drawing lots of dogs and capturing their unique characteristics!

All work is initially hand drawn in the traditional way using pencil or pen, sketched onto paper. The designs are then brought to life digitally in a bright and happy vector style.
