A little bit of my life in Switzerland, as seen through my cell phone.
Yes, I admit it, I am absolutely in love with Instagram. It’s an addiction.
I’ve been going through a meticulous process of finding interesting artists to follow and it’s amazing to get a glimpse of their work processes and understand a little bit of how their minds work. The other day I actually came to the conclusion that some of the best feeds I’ve seen are from Thailand. I can’t explain why. Just beautiful illustrations and stunning photography. Not your usual Instagram-type pictures, if you know what I mean. While I definitely don’t mind those, I think Instagram is not just about seeing what my friends are up to (to be honest, I don’t really care what they’re eating or wearing), it can also be a very good tool for finding great references and inspiration.

Lots of love from Basel.
Hello my dears,
At last, I am back. It has been a long time indeed.
I am in Switzerland at the moment, and for those of you who have never been here in the summer, I entirely recommend it. It’s light, green and so beautiful.
I have been drawing LOTS and working on tons of different projects: children’s clothes for a client in LA, portraits for a client in NY, business cards, logos and stationery for a client in Brazil, a children’s book, a book of short stories and a brand new blog project. I am breathless and in need of a good nap, but excited and inspired.
I have updated my website and added a number of new pieces and projects there. Check them out on www.atelierjoanafaria.com - I hope you like it!
I am always posting pictures, sketches and work in progress on Instagram. For updates, follow me @joanafaria.
Lots of love from Switzerland.
