Logo 3 #happylogoproject Kindness matters โค๏ธ๐ŸŒˆ because we donโ€™t actually know what people are really going through behind their smile and social media highlightsโœจ

Logo 2 #happylogoproject You deserve your own love ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’›โœจ Easier said than done sometimes but when I make the effort to do nice things for myself it really lifts my mood! ๐Ÿ™Œ

#marchmeetthemaker | You - Story behind name - Workspace - Full or part time: combined post in attempt to catch up ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ƒ This is me, Nikki the person behind the art โœ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ซ 29 y/o working full time as a designer & illustrator. Iโ€™m an introvert, always been obsessed with creativity, tiny details, collecting stuff, drawing and bright colours. โ€˜Nikki Milesโ€™ is just my name. This is my desk in the workspace that I share with my fiancรฉ, itโ€™s a spare room in our flat ๐Ÿ’– I feel lucky in many ways but it hasnโ€™t come without working relentlessly through the highs and lows including tears ๐Ÿ˜ญ mistakes, failure and rejection along the way. Iโ€™ve just kept going somehow ๐ŸŒˆ

Itโ€™s important to let yourself rest ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’™๐ŸŒธ The world isnโ€™t going to stop spinning if you donโ€™t do everything on your to do list. People probably arenโ€™t going to notice either๐Ÿ’ซ I love the fact Iโ€™m busy with a lot of illustration projects at the moment but Iโ€™ve been beating myself up all week because I havenโ€™t had any energy left over to create new content for Instagram. So maybe I should take my own advice and stop freaking out about it ๐Ÿ™ƒ

#marchmeetthemaker | Tools & materialsโœ๏ธ as much as I love experimenting with every single art material and process you can imagine, 2 years ago I decided to choose just one way of working and stick with it. I draw / paint by hand with black inks, then colour and assemble my illustrations digitally using a Mac and Wacom tablet. Having consistency has made a big difference to my style and Iโ€™ve had lots of amazing opportunities to work on commercial projects, so I think I made the right decision๐Ÿ’ซ โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€” This is my illustration commissioned by @weareticketyboo

#marchmeetthemaker | how I started๐Ÿ’ซ growing up mum and dad always encouraged my creativity, they put up with me making a mess all over the house with art projects, getting paint on the carpet and drawing over the furniture ๐Ÿ™ƒ having a creative career was an obvious choice for me. So I studied graphic design & illustration at uni and I have worked in the industry since then โœ๏ธ๐ŸŽจ๐ŸŒˆ

Favourite to make | #marchmeetthemaker ๐ŸŽจ Iโ€™ve been hesitating about joining in with the challenge and now Iโ€™m late to the party ๐Ÿ˜‚ I love illustrating food, patterns and hand lettering. I donโ€™t physically make any products but I do draw and paint most of my work by hand before colouring it digitally ๐Ÿฉ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’ซ
