After a brief break for the Holidays, our Instagram of the Week series continues! This week we introduce you to a Spanish illustrator and designer from Barcelona:

Joana Santamans (@hollyhands)

Who: I came across Joana Santamans when researching some art events in San Francisco, and found this hands-on workshop she will be teaching at Public Works. After checking out the Barcelonian illustrator, I was instantly drawn to her unique style, which has lead her to be commissioned for exhibits and murals from London to New York and beyond.

Why You Should Follow Her: If you want to be attacked by cute every time you check your Instagram feed. ¬†She mostly uploads photos of her newest works, with photos of her openings, travels, and Zoe Deschanel-like cuteness sprinkled along the way. Her vibrant, yet dainty illustrations and murals of animals and nature are so whimsical, they can instantly make you feel like you’re stuck in a dreamy film montage, and who wouldn’t want that? Check out some samples of her Instagram below:
