urban illustration

i cannot remember how i find joanna gwis´ gorgeous blog kavkadesign. it was an accident while surfing the internet after closing-time. a great accident i must say. i love her illustration. they are suggestive of urbanity and a refined taste.

joanna  lives with her husband Sebastian and four pets in an 80-year-old wooden house that i love as much as her illustrations. 
at the moment joanna is looking for a little flat in hamburg for her sister. thus if you know one please do not hesitate to contact her.
