Our Story

A new collaboration between best selling author Joanne Harris and freelance illustrator Bonnie Helen Hawkins.

 

Those of you that are already familiar with Joanne Harris and her work, will know that each day on her Twitter feed Joanne posts a description of her writing shed. It's not an actual description of the physical shed but instead a flight of fantasy to carry us all away at the start of each day. The shed tweets are written to inspire, cheer and illuminate the day ahead.

 

Joanne describes them as "exercises in the imagination".

 

Since Joanne and Bonnie started to work together, Bonnie's fans have often called "loudly" for illustrations to accompany the shed tweets. Well at last we are excited to announce a collaboration to finally bring words and pictures together in a full colour calendar and you are invited to be part of the creative process.

On the 1st of each month Bonnie and Joanne will be posting a new tweet, a newsletter and a painting, all building towards a Kickstarter campaign to fund the printing of the calendar ready for use in 2023.  Followers and subscribers will be amongst the first to receive information about the calendar, an opportunity to support the kickstarter campaign and receive lots of exclusive artwork as well as an opportunely to contribute to the design of the calendar. 

Enjoy the words and pictures.
