Witness This

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

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!

It has been too long

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.

All I want for Christmas…

…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
