She can be purchased as an art print or on various cute little objects such as pillows, iPad skins, tote bags, etc.

I had originally illustrated her when I was living in New York, 2 years ago. I wasn’t blogging very frequently (It was my first time in New York, you see, and there was so much to do!), but I was drawing a lot, all the time and everywhere!

One of my best friends from there loved this illustration and she would always mention it in our emails and chats. I had forgotten about it for a while until this morning. For some reason, I woke up thinking about it! It took me a while to find it among my several back up folders, but here it is! :0) Looking at it makes me happy. It brings back a lot of good memories.

See it in my shop here.

Lots of love,

Witness This

Last Friday I was featured in the art section of the brilliant and oh, so cool Witness This.

This is my favorite part of the feature: “I love the playfulness in Joana’s style. Her drawings are a fun and cheerful world to dive into, and simply put you in a good mood while there is also an element of latent madness residing within. If I was a child again, I would love to have her illustrate my favorite fairy tales… you know what, forget the child, Edgar fuckin’ Allan Poe it is!”

Oh my God, what a GREAT IDEA. Yes, I believe I am going to drop everything and start an Edgar Allan Poe series. It’s too tempting. And extremely flattering. – Thank you guys!

Read the whole feature here, and for everything cool, creative and inspirational, check out the rest of the page here. Some of the most interesting content I have seen in ages!
