fashion illustration
I've just now realized that most of my fashion illustrations have some kind of hill in the back. It is an interesting coincidence that both of the cities where I have lived for most of my life, Split (where I was born and raised) and Mostar (where I have spend my student years) have a dormant vulcano i.e. a hill that is clearly visible from almost every spot in the town. I suppose that got translated in my illustrations as well. As far as the outfit on the illustration goes, it's an rather simple one.

I cannot thank you enough for all of your lovely comments, they do make me feel better whenever I feel blue...and my heart goes out to all the flood victims. I hope they know they're in our heart.

Shvatih da većina mojih ilustracija ima nekakvo brdo u pozadini. Zanimljiva je podudarnost da oba grada u kojima sam živjela duže vrijeme, Split u kojem sam rođena i odrasla i Mostar u kojem sam provela studentske dane, imaju ugasli vulkan tj. brdo koje je jasno vidi sa skoro svakog mjesta u gradu. Pretpostavljam da je tako i završilo u mojoj ilustraciji.

Hvala svima na divnim komentarima, uvijek me razvedre kad god sam tužna...i suosjećam sa svim žrtvama poplava. Nadam se da znaju da su nam u srcima.

  4. Forse certe cose rimangono nel nostro subconscio e quindi poi si materializzano quando non ci pensiamo, come nei disegni! Bella illustrazione, mi piacciono molto i color!I

  5. Croatia is a beautiful country, always wanted to visit. Not surprising that you include landscapes in your illustrations!

  6. This is a lovely illustration! I love it when you share your drawings with us. I especially dig the little backdrop you added to give us a sense of location and grounding. Keep on drawing! I really do hope to travel abroad some day... I would just love to see somewhere that is not the US, haha. :)

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
