Creative Playdate Episode 9: Jacqui Oakley and Jamie Lawson


For the first time EVER, I’ve got a couple on the show! Jacqui Oakley and Jamie Lawson are both freelance creatives (she’s an illustrator, he’s an illustrator and designer) with an energetic three-year-old. We talk about their childcare situation and dividing up time with their son when deadlines don’t always coincide with day care.

It was good fun to chat with them. They are beginning to collaborate on fine art/gallery work and it makes me wish my husband and I could collaborate in that way. It sounds like a great way to get back to the early parts of a relationship, before kids. And Jacqui weighs in on her experience taking a break from work after giving birth.

You can follow Jacqui on Twitter and Instagram @jacquioakley and you can follow Jamie on Twitter @poly_studio and Instagram @jamielawson. Oh, and Jacqui has some great videos of her speaking at Weapons of Mass Creation and Creative Mornings.

And if you’re enjoying the show, please take a moment to rate and review on iTunes. It helps spread the word!
