FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: ILLUSTRATING A BLACK DRESS FROM DOLCE & GABBANA AUTUMN COLLECTION

Today I'm sharing a new fashion illustration with you. The dress I illustrated is a Dolce & Gabbana creation from Autumn/Winter 2018/2019 collection. Speaking of which, how did you like the collection? Are you a fan of this designer duo? This is not the only black dress from that collection that caught my eyes, but it's the one I deemed the prettiest. The black dresses from this D&G collection are definitely eye candy. In the past I have illustrated this brand a couple of times. If you want to see more of mine D&G inspired fashion illustrations, you can check out some out here and here. The fashion illustration I'm sharing today is a mixed media, coloured pencils and watercolour on paper. I prepared a few photographs of the 'making of' process and a short description of the drawing and painting process. Scroll down to see and learn more. On overall, I'm happy how this turned out. I'm even considering gifting it to somebody. It's neither a s…

Fashion Illustrations of the day: Rihanna for British Vogue + Making of a Fashion Illustration

Today I'm back with another fashion illustration of mine. I'm sure that for fashion lovers the image of Rihanna gracing the cover of September British  British Vogue is nothing new.  You've probably all seen it by now.  But you haven't seen my drawing of this cover (or maybe you did in my stories?). I think this was the first time I've ever illustrated a fashion cover. What did you think about the cover, btw? I obviously liked it, since I drew it and all. I do like this dramatic and theatrical make up look. Not something for every day, but perfect for that editorial. It was sure fun drawing this one.


I drew this little illustration some time ago (about two weeks ago, I think). As you might have noticed, I've been a bit absent from the blogging world. Thank you for all of your kind messages. These past two weeks were a real challenge for me, but let's hope it all works out well so that I might return to blogging again. For people suffering from immune and c…

Inspired by Jodie's Touch of Style

Time for another Inspired byfeature and if you are a regular reader you know what that means. I'm going to share an illustration inspired by the blogging world. It's basically a blog recommendation accompanied by my art, usually my fashion illustrations. A fun feature, isn't it? Today post was inspired by blog Jodie's Touch of Style. Jodie is a blogger who typically shots outfit posts together with Charlotte and Nancy.  Sometimes they also feature other ladies on their blog. Anyhow, all three of them have a great sense of style. They show us that you can always have fun with clothes! I wanted to illustrate them for a while, and now I have finally made the time and made two fashion illustrations. These illustrations are what I'm going to share with you today. As I said, I have prepared two fashion illustrations for you today. I have drawn one of them in the typical 'fashion illustration' elongated style and the other in a semi-realistic style. The first sty…

SPLIT CITY: IS DOMNIUS CATHEDRAL'S BELL TOWER WORTH THE CLIMB?

I already wrote about cathedral of Saint Domnius here. The cathedral is one of must see places in Split city. The Romanesque bell tower is obviously not as old as the cathedral, for the cathedral is truly ancient (the oldest christian cathedral to fully preserve its original form in the world). However, the bell tower of saint Domnius is a historical sight on its own. The bell tower is in many ways, a masterpiece of medieval architecture. Build in 1100 AD in Romanesque style, the cathedral saw some changes over the years but it has retained its beauty. Today this bell tower is one of Split city's most iconic symbols. 
The bell tower of saint Domnius is definitely a great sight to visit. Moreover, the view from the top is nothing short of breath-taking. The stone design of the bell tower is not only beautiful  and historic but also very open. From every point of the climb, you'll be able to enjoy a spectacular view. Today I'll try to answer the question whether the cathedr…

How To Tone Down a Bold Floral Print Dress? Outfit Proposal of the Day

Fashion illustrations and flowers go well together. Hopefully so do the straw accessories and floral print, because that is what today's outfit proposal is about. The connection between flowers and fashion illustration is what I was trying to show with my last post. Today I'm going to show you how to wear a floral print dress with straw accessories. Like many fashion bloggers out there, I'm a fan of the floral print for a number of good reasons. One of them is certainly the eye-catching appeal of floral print. Floral just never get old, do they? 
HOW TO TONE DOWN A BOLD FLORAL DRESS? 
The print on the floral dress I'm wearing in this post is particularly bold. It's a very eye-catching printed dress, so I decided to tone it down a bit. At times, I feel like wearing my floral print dresses in a more subtle way. Not every outfit needs to be full of contrasting colour, right? Sometimes we might feel like taking it easy and putting together something simple. How to tone …
