Hello and welcome my little corner of the Internet. This is me, Joanne Hawker, the face behind all the lovely things you will find posted on this blog. I am a designer, illustrator and maker of generally pretty things for you and your home based in rural south Somerset. I graduated from the University of Wales Institute Cardiff in 2010 with a first class honours degree in Graphic Communication. Since then, I’ve designed bits and bobs for various people, been in a few exhibitions (including John Lewis and the Eye Candy Illustration Festival) and opened an online shop.

You may have already guessed that I love woodland creatures and anything that involves drawing cute little animals and drinking copious amounts of tea. My work could be described as something for the young or for those who are young at heart. My work is designed to make you smile, feel good and mostly importantly for you to enjoy.

On this blog you will find a variety of things. There will be posts about work in progress, completed projects, things I may need your opinion on, bits about my shop including discounts and coupon codes, things that I generally find interesting and most importantly the odd free download for you guys!
