Interview with Martina / Intervju sa Martinom

Today I'm sharing with you an interview. Preparing this interview with the wonderfully talented Martina, I had hard time selecting which of her works to feature. Everything she creates is so unique and magical, I'm sure you'll be as amazed as I'm. Stop by her blog to see more. 



Danas ću podijeliti sa vama intervju. Pripremajući ovaj intervju s jako talentiranom Martinom, bilo mi je teško izabrati koji od njenih radova prikazati. Sve što stvara je tako jedinstveno i magično, sigurna sam da ćete biti oduševljeni kao što sam i ja. Svratite do njenog bloga kako biste vidjeli više.


1. Kada si se počela baviti izradom nakita?

    Prije nekih 4 - 5 godina, onda sam i napravila svoj prvi blog ˝Tincha made u kojem sam predstavila svoj nakit, ali kako najviše od svega volim crtati odlučila sam se više posvetiti crtanju, i otvorila novi blog sa svojim ilustracijama. Osim crtanja na papiru, počela sam crtati i na ručno oblikovanim okvirima od DAS mase, što mi se jako svidjelo i tako su nastale moje zidne dekoracije. Imam stalno puno ideja i tako sam odlučila probati napraviti broševe od DAS mase i nacrtati svoje ilustracije na njih i to mi se isto jako svidjelo, sad radim na naušnicama od istog materijala.

1. When did you start to make jewelry?

Some 4-5 years ago and that was when I made my first blog Tincha made in which I have represented my jewelry. However, since I like drawing most of all, I've decided to focus on that and opened a new blog with my illustrations. Besides drawing on paper I have started drawing on hand made frames (made of DAS), which I really liked and so my wall decorations came to be. I'm constantly full of ideas and so I have decided to try to make brooches out of DAS mass and draw my illustrations onto them. I enjoyed that a lot, now I'm working on earrings from the same material.

2. Koja su tvoja nadahnuća za modne ilustracije?

    Kad crtam svoje ilustracije moda mi nije primarna, više želim pokazati neki svijet iz mašte.
Svi moji radovi nadahnuti su bajkama. Volim boje i detalje, tako da kad crtam neku ilustraciju posvećujem veliku pažnju tome. Boje moraju biti vesele, kontrastne, mora biti puno detalja.
Po zanimanju sam osim grafičkog i tekstilni dizajner, tako da jako volim crtati haljine, zato možemo reći da su moje ilustracije u jednu ruku i modne.

2. What are your inspirations for fashion illustrations?

When I'm drawing my illustrations, the fashion is not the most important thing for me. I prefer to show a world of my own imagination. All my works are inspired by fairy- tales. I love colours and details so that when I'm making an illustration, I dedicate a great attention to that. I'm a designer by profession, both a graphic and a textile one so I enjoy the process of drawing dresses. In some way it can be said that my illustrations are also fashion illustrations.

3. Možeš li izdvojiti neki od svojih radova i koji bi to bio?

Svi su mi radovi jako dragi jer prilikom izrade svakome posvećujem veliku pažnju i puno vremena, ne volim raditi na brzinu. Od ilustracija na papiru bih izdvojila ˝I send you love˝ možete ju naći na mom blogu, a posebno draga mi je nova kolekcija broševa nazvana ˝Proljetno sanjarenje˝.

3. Do you especially treasure any of your works and which one?

All of my works are special to me because while making them I dedicate great care and much time to every single one of them. From illustrations on paper, I would point out ' I send you love', you can find it on my blog. Especially dear to me is the new collection of brooches called 'springtime dreaming'

4. Koliko ti vremena otprilike treba za nacrati jednu ilustraciju?

    Imam desetomjesečnu curicu, tako da si ne mogu na dan posvetiti par sati crtanja u komadu.
Ali uz dobru organizaciju, osiguram si barem jedan sat vremena za svoj kreativni rad i tako se crtanje ilustracije otegne na par dana, jer kao što sam već navela, ne volim raditi na brzinu, volim o svemu dobro razmisliti do najsitnijih detalja. Ali od idejne skice do finalnog proizvoda treba mi oko 6 sati.

4. How much time does it take you to draw a single illustration?

I'm a mother to a ten month old baby girl, so I cannot find time to draw for hours non stop. Nevertheless, with good organization, I ensure at least one hour for my creative work and so the making of an illustration can stretch for a few days, because as I have already said, I don't like to work hastily. I prefer to think thoroughly about everything to the minute details. From an sketch to the final product it takes about 6 hours.

5. Koji bi bio tvoj savjet za nekoga tko želi napraviti nešto kreativno, a ne zna od kuda bi počeo?

Hm, pa kad ja imam pomanjkanje inspiracije, uzmem papir i olovku i crtkaram.
Tako se rode neke ideje, koje onda razrađujem.

5. What would be your advice for someone who wants to do something creative but isn't sure from where to start?

Well, when I lack inspiration, I take a pen and draw and doodle. In this way some ideas are formed and than I develop them further.

  23. Thanks a lot for this interesting interview and showing her great work! It's really impressing and so unique. Obviously she buring (I hope that you know what I mean as I'm not sure if in English this word is also used if someone is really excited about something) for her work as she enables it to continue her work although she has her baby.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.

February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 








DIY PROJECTS 
I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
