Day 14: Dreams & Plans #meetthemaker by #joannehawker
Ponder a while on what image to show here as it’s such a thought provoking one...so a simple beach stone collage from my printed paper. I have the job I dreamed of as a child, so my plans are small, about doing nice things with the people I love. I dream of warm holidays & seeing friends I miss, I dream of peace. Keep enjoying the small things & be kind to ourselves & others. πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ½πŸŒΏπŸŒ on a crap day I feel like @nicolamilesdesigns post today.. I love it! It made me laugh so much x

Day 13: Workwear
#meetthemaker by #joannehawker
Jobs aside as I couldnt resist Illustrating this one....love a baggy linen one piece as shown, Dave’s big old holey Carhart cardi, and any time of the year Birkenstocks.. either a Boston (see above) or an Arizona in fairer weather. I love my Olive green apron which I don for a printing sesh. Happy Workday folks 😁😍

Day 12: P & P #meetthemaker I mainly post House portraits so flat A3 brown paper wrapped packages from here. enough said on the matter & on with a new Branding product. Happy Monday ⭐️ πŸ‘πŸΌ@katepaintshouses.carbonmade.com

Day 11: Branding #meetthemaker by #joannehawker
A little look at my Branding πŸ”with a big look at my bunch of green, thanks kids (or thoughtful husband) @tallboysleeds @theplantroom
My logo: font is braggadocio, designed in the 30's as it very much suggests. It was based on Futura black which is another favourite of mine. I love the way it looks almost misplaced, plucked from somewhere else. Works great stamped.. I love it! #happymothersday all you lovely creative women out there.

Day 10 #meetthemaker :Relax
Started today with a drizzly dog walk to @partisanyork for our fav bread @haxbybaker it's gonna be a πŸ‘ŒπŸ½day

Day 9: HOW #meetthemaker
Well simpler than you could imagine really, which is the beauty of this process. It's about the space between, the interactions, the colour & composition rather than a study of ornithology.
Step 1: choose a small palette of papers.. colour & texture is the focus
Step 2: cut out leafy/ simple shapes from 3- (odd numbers are best)
Step 3: place then thinking about the overall shape & space between (beaks, legs & tail feathers need space)
Step 4: stick down & add those tweety features. Et voila!
Go on, make your own & send us a pic if you do πŸ‘πŸΌHappy Friday β€οΈβœ‚οΈπŸ’šβœ‚οΈπŸ’™βœ‚οΈ

#marchmeetthemaker Here's a small collection of my wares FLATLAY, as they say
Relief printing is such a lovely process, I don't have a space or facilities here to screenprint so devised my own way of blockprinting so I could crack on from home while the kids were at school. The birds are cut from the printed paper.. I love the chaotic, scratchy texture against the sharpness of a cut line.. not dissimilar to the effects of screenprinting πŸŽ‰like to get the scratchy effect across with my pottery too. Can you tell my inspiration has come from the great designers of the 50's?
Lucienne Day has long been a favourite. Which brings me to #internationalwomensday. πŸ’–Enjoy your day women, here's a quote β€œThe worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”πŸ’ͺ🏼
― Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
Song for the day: Candi Statton- You've got the love β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ–€πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ–€β€οΈπŸ’œπŸ–€πŸ’šπŸ’›

Day 7: #meetthemaker ROUTINE Doesn't really feel like a big part of my life as everyday is pretty different. My working week is filled with Design projects, a client meeting, a house to paint. Lets not forget making time for all the other good stuff like coffee with friends, I run (a little bit) I yoga (a little bit) I often wind down my working day around 5 to make dinner & catch up with family and all the other stuff. I love the variety my work gives me. Less routinely I could be selling my stuff (word of the day) at a local fair, running a workshop or visiting College to talk to the students. Variety is the spice of my life πŸ˜‰πŸŽ‰

Workspace πŸŽ‰πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸŽ¨ Just moved back in after weekend decorating so looking less cluttered than everπŸ‘πŸΌwe have loads of wonderful artwork to fill the walls, just need a quiet weekend day for that. So I'm on the right near the window, it's a lovely spot for a nosey Parker like meπŸ™ˆ & with loads of natural light. Dave as you can see is diagonal to me working on his Illustration projects.
We get the odd job where we collaborate but on the whole we're on our own jobs, but so good to have that other opinion when you need it 😍😘 @davidsempleillustration
Treasures on the @kaystemmer bookshelf ⭐️ man screenprint by forever friend & an incredibly talented Illustrator @loodoodles Always love abit of inspiration from you pioneer of Handlettering as we know it Mike Perry.
On top of the cupboard is my Grandmas breadmaking bowl. I adore this big bold bowl for its simplicity & the memories it holds for me of that strong, amazing Yorkshire women that was my Gran. In fact breadmaking was the backbone of family life for me. Sunday after the roast my Mum would bake the weeks bread, we would have a bath, get into our Pjs & eat freshly baked in front of the fire. Pretty wholesome hey!πŸ’– oh & how I digress. Ill leave on the subject of BREAD. Have a great day making in your workspace everyone β­οΈπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸŽ¨πŸ  #meetthemaker #marchmeetthemaker

Photography : I love local Commissions like this one so I can take the pic to work from myself, choosing the best angle & a sunny day. I take pics along the way as clients often like to see the process. πŸ™ˆ
I use my reliable I phone for day to day documenting but for something special like Photos so my website I call on the skills of a pro like Frances from @hamiltonphotofilm.
Photography has always been a passion of mine from college days in the darkroom.. aah the magic of that process! 😎
I only recently sold my old faithful Nikon FM2 for impractical reasons but a good pic from a manual is still unbeatable πŸ‘πŸΌπŸŽ‰πŸ’– Happy snapping friends❀️#marchmeetthemaker #meetthemaker
