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!
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.
…is to give presents!
Here’s the first present I gave this year. A little illustration for a very dear friend.
He really liked it, which is all that matters to me.
♥ And speaking of gifts…
My print shop is up and running and taking orders. If you’re looking for something sweet and original for Christmas, this could be a good idea.
All illustrations were carefully selected and originally produced with a lot of love. The prints are limited edition so if you find something you like, let me know. Check them out here.
