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.
♥ During my time in this city, I have found that New Yorkers always have a lot to say.

♥ I have been in New York for two months now. God, where did time go? It seems like it was yesterday that I arrived here, not having a clue what to expect, referring to my map every 5 minutes (“is that downtown or uptown?”), getting lost on the subway and getting high on the energy and excitement of being in the centre of the world.
I am not a true New Yorker yet, but I have definitely grown accustomed to living here. I have a favorite cafe and a favorite Moroccan restaurant in the East Village. I have a favorite bar for Monday nights. I have a favorite cupcake shop in Soho, a favorite arts supply centre, a nail saloon and a bookstore. I don’t have a set routine (the wonderful thing about being an art student) but regarding those places I’ve just mentioned, I’m definitely up for some frequent flyer miles pretty soon.
New York, I have one month left here. Something tells me I’ll miss the hell out of you when that time is up.
Have a nice week, everyone, and don’t work too hard.
Lots of love from sunny Lisbon.
Zim and Zou, or Thibault Zimmermann and Lucie Thomas, is a Graphic Design duo from France. This is one of their projects and my precious find of the week: an installation of paper sculptures called Back to Basics.

Isn’t it just breathtaking?! The details, the bright colors, the patience and perfectionism invested in it… Amazing. These are all real-sized sculptures! It’s so hard to manipulate paper that way. And what a brilliant idea! I would love to see each one of these pieces, touch them and take them home with me. I particularly loved the Polaroid camera. Too cute!
Do take a look at their other projects here: www.zimandzou.fr. They are very talented.
