For the past five years, Pete Duffield, 38, has posted illustrations of the good and not-so-good times – and he now has 75,000 followers.
His success has made headlines in national newspapers and it’s been featured on Italian, Swiss, Slovakian and Russian blogs/portals. There are fans in almost every country, from Iran to the USA’s Hawaii.
The University of Brighton graduate believes his frank and honest drawings resonate with viewers who identify with both life’s trials and its amusing times. Some portray intimate moments in the couple’s relationship, their love for each other and their baby Poppy.
Pete, who works for a Brighton design agency, began the drawings when he first dated his girlfriend Kellie Gage, 33.
He said: “I like to record the small things that happen in life, especially those involving Poppy – little things she says and does – and, hopefully, she will enjoy looking at them when she’s older.”
