Here is a little bit of my life in this wonderful town we call Hamburg. In today’s chapter: “The way to work”.
This is what I see every day on my journey from my apartment to the Advertising Agency where I work:
The view from my window:
Some cute houses on my street and neighbourhood:
Then I jump on the subway and a couple of stations later, I’m standing opposite the Town Hall in the city centre:
I walk past some of the gorgeous canals by the river. They look like this during the winter:
And like this during spring:
I pass some very cute shop windows:
And next thing I know, I’m at the agency!
Hamburg is a beautiful city! It reminds me a little of Stockholm: it’s clean, efficient, perfect from every angle and it’s surrounded by water everywhere, which makes it fresh and happy.
Now that the weather is getting warmer, walking around, having lunch or coffee outside and visiting the parks is that much more enjoyable. My next objective is to get a bike so I can enjoy Germany’s (undoubtedly short) summer as much as I can!

Lots of love from sunny Deutschland,
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.
Last week I received a new illustration assignment: to color some of the new images I have recently finished for Wardrobe Mistress. – These illustrations are brand new and haven’t been published yet, so I’m keeping them secret for the time being. I hope you don’t mind. :) – Anyway, these new colorful versions will be turned into postcards which is very exciting, as I’ve never done postcards before. Yay! They’ll be all over London and I can’t wait to see them ready!
So, as I was looking for inspiration and trying to decide on my color palette, I kept finding myself being drawn to all things orange. I mean… what? Orange? Really? – This has never happened before. I have always been much more into pastels, nude colors and darker tones. Oh, well I guess inspiration works in weird and magical ways and I think I’ve just discovered my new favorite color. I’m absolutely in love with it.

♥ Summer is definitely here. It’s so warm and sticky I really wish I was brave enough to chop my hair off. No pain, no regrets, just cut it all off. Wouldn’t that be great.

♥ However, sticky or not, summer can be kind of wonderful, so I’ll try not to whine too much about the heat. :)
Wishing you a very beautiful sunny weekend.
Lots of love from Lisbon.
