About Jono Hey

Hello! 👋

I'm Jono and I've been explaining a new concept each week with the help of a sketch since 2013.

There are ones about physics, psychology, design, geography, drawing, lifehacks, food and never know what you're going to get next ;o)

Every now and then I hear about wonderful things like teachers using them in their classes, or people using them in their newsletters to help explain something. As you're here, you can make these good things keep happening with a small monthly amount.

Support from patrons has not only helped me stay motivated to keep up the quality, it has also helped keep the lights on for the site and newsletter and delivered some super improvements like searchtags, the archive and a store for prints.

At the second tier and beyond you'll also get access to the full hi-res archive for your projects — even if you decide you can only support for a little while.

Also, for every patron who supports me, at whatever level you can, I commit to planting 5 trees a month 🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳 — together I think we can start to make a real impact.

Thanks for joining me and helping keep these weekly sketches in yours and others' inboxes and feeds across the world.


  • Making good sketchplanations takes time, effort and a little money
  • You can help make sketchplanations better and keep coming for you and others with just a little support, at any amount a month
  • Supporting me as a patron at any level means I'll plant 5 trees 🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳 on your behalf every month

This will be really awesome. With careful curation, rework and polishing I'll be able to put together a sweet Sketchplanations eBook and coffee table book.
