This is my second tier on my Patreon. It has all the benefits of the first tier, I have just priced it slightly differently because I understand that we all have very different incomes at the moment and these are uncertain times.

I'm hoping on using this account to fund my upcoming project - A Midsummer Night's Dream.

About Bonnie Helen Hawkins

Hello Friends and welcome to my dreams,

Within the pages of this Patreon account I want to share with you my dreams and aspirations as both an artist and illustrator. I will include my inspirations, my thought processes, behind the scene photos of WIP and sometimes techniques. 

Many of you will know I have been an artist all my life. In that time I have painted in many different voices and learnt my craft as best I could (I don't have a degree in fine art or illustration and only finished one year in art college - long story which I promise to tell you one day).

Make no mistake being an artist is a scary ride. People always say when creating anything "be true to yourself" - overcome the fear of creating but always be true to yourself - whatever that "self" may be.  But like so many people sometimes I don't know "myself" and have drifted from exhibition to exhibition, book to book - not any more.

Covid forced upon us all a deep reflection and isolation. In my isolation I found myself writing lists, all the things I wanted to draw and paint before the end of day. This came with the sad realisation that probably no one would ever commission me to do these drawings or make this art.

So I'm going to have to take that most scary step of all, throw myself into that "artistic bucket list" and hope for the best. I'm going to share with you all my private non-commissioned work - all the things I'm longing to draw - all the things that are in my heart, and just hope that you like them too. 

First let's start with The Dream. I want to illustrate the most famous dream of all, Shakespeares "A Midsummer Nights Dream". Not in some nice traditional way where all the fairies are pretty and good, but in the way that Shakespeare would have conceived it - when fairies and wood spirits were real, frightening and not to be trusted. This is a huge project, it may take me a decade to do it properly; to match the words to my vision, and it might never be published, but if you help me I will promise you a Dream like you have never seen before. An illustration with  every turn of the page.

So for approximately the price of a cup of coffee you can help in this ongoing journey. Come and take my hand, together we will go on a drawing adventure. 

Oh I might also bake cakes.
