Random Illustrated Facts

Over the past couple of years, I’ve somehow started following over 700 different accounts on Instagram. There aren’t enough hours in the day to ever make it through my entire feed, but every once in a while, I get lucky and stumble upon an awesome illustration. Yesterday’s stumble happens to be the artist, Mike Lowery (and no, not the Will Smith character from Bad Boys).

Last year, Mike started drawing out random facts as a daily warm up activity in his sketchbook, and now he accumulated quite the extensive collection of quirky and amusing factoids. Check out some of my favorites below, and follow him on Instagram (@mikelowerystudio) to peruse the rest of his work.
