Here is a collection of amazing hand drawn websites. The art displayed in these websites is absolutely terrific. I’m a huge fan of making a strong use of texture based artwork. The textures and colors in these websites are great. Bold colors. Original designs. Excellent work here.

I hope that each of you will take a moment to check these sites out and leave some feedback of your observations in the comments section of this post. Stop by and let me know what you think of these links!

    Wow… those are seriously inspiring. Awesome concept that I really hadn’t paid much attention to before.

    Thanks!

  • Evan says:

    Pretty amazing. I think designs like that won’t work for some sites, but in the right situation designs like those are impressive.

    • Evan » I completely agree. There are so many different styles of sites which can include these textured sites, or Web 2.0 (glossy) sites and so many more. You really have to find what works for you and move on. But even with that in mind, as we develop our skills in this we should constantly be taking in work from each category so that we can continue to learn! Plus by always looking at sites better than our own we can then be our own best critics and we can work to make our own sites better by implementing principles that we see at other sites.

    nicholas,
    did u design all these?

    • AIDA » No. I didn’t design these. I just found them and wanted to point them out so that everyone could see how amazing they are. I love to look at the great work of others and draw inspiration and ideas from them.

  • Arisu says:

    Hi! I just found your blog and it already rocks my socks XD Also, it´s the first blog I´ve suscribed to.

    About the post, I really really like this sites.
    I know that style ain´t suitable for all websites, but sometimes we´re just so into technology that we forget all the awesome things we can do with our hands.

    Thanks for the inspiration and the amusement 😉

    • Arisu » Thanks. Did you subscribe to the email? If so I hope that you win our contest! Good luck to you. There are certainly many different styles of sites out there and I plan on highlighting some of the best out there that I find.

  • Arisu says:

    Yep, I did. And it would be great to win anything XD I would be happy winning chocolate… and hugs!

    Anyway, a little inspiration for you:

      Hey you give me unique experience with that link. Thank you…!!!
      It’s so interesting when we find so many interesting things when we’re scroll up the mouse and clicking the board one by one.

        Akira>>

        I´m glad you like it ^^ It´s just a little sample of the great design done here in Mexico.

        Awww, I feel nostalgic, this was my very first comment here at sitesketch101 T_T

  • Check out my site, all sketched by hand with some touches of collage as well.

    The designs are seriously awesome. But I don’t think none of them will suit well for running a professional blog. Anyway, my favorite design would be Simon Reynolds. Really very cool! Love to have one like that!

    • Arisu says:

      Mukund>>

      Well, those are all professional sites. But it depends on what your blog is about and what are you trying to communicate – if you mean original and fun, then a sketch design may be the one-

  • Ron Boracay says:

    I love the Toucouleur most! They are all great!

    This is a perfect example for a web design or artist website. The main page alone will prove their work (aside from their portfolio).

  • ZXT says:

    They are all cool and great but my favorite is Kutztown University.

    Look closely and you’ll see birds flying from one side to another and clouds moves too not to mention what look like a Sun.

  • akira07 says:

    thanks for the post, it give me inspiration.
    From all the template in your post, i’m love Booma Web Design, it’s so simple but attractive. Well, the other is also good but i think it’s too rich design, my eyes will get hurt if i look it for a long time.

  • After look through most of your articles, i noticed that you always provide the information of good designing to the readers. However, i still do not know how to create a good design blog. Is it really need a Thesis Theme or any other else? Anyway, thanks for sharing!

    Love the look of these websites. The artistic aspect of it is great! I know it wouldn’t work for every website out there- I mean your website it for sure wouldn’t work, but one that is into whimsy or products it certainly would.

    I subscribed for the contest, but find the more I read, the more I enjoy what you do!
