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. :)

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. 

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…
