Spirit of adventure (illustration) / Avanturistički duh (ilustracija)

akrilne boje i kemijska olovka na papiru

Another illustration, another message...Spirit of adventure is something we all can use, don't you think? Just like a piece of statement jewelry that will make us feel fabulous. My choice is often the kind of statement necklaces that you can see on these illustration (and many of my recent ones) but I also love hair accessories.  Quite often I have managed to combine those two in some of my works. What kind of jewelry do you like?

Another illustration, another redhead I might seems that redheads have invaded my imagination. Anyhow, this redhead is wearing a dark scarf, blue tee and vintage aviator kind of glasses...maybe she is driving a motorcycle, maybe something else....who knows? but she had that spirit of adventure feel about her.

Još jedna ilustracija, još jedna poruka... avanturistički duh je nešto što nam svima dobro dođe, zar ne?Baš kao i upečatljiv komad nakita koji će učiniti da se osjećamo divno. Moj izbor je često ovakav tip ogrlica koje možete vidjeti na ovoj ilustraciji (ali i drugim mojim ilustracijama u zadnje vrijeme), ali također volim i nakit za kosu. Često sam uspjela to dvoje i ukombinirati u nekim svojim radovima. Kakvu vrstu nakita vi volite?

Još jedna ilustracija, još jedna crvenkosa...čini se da su mi crvenokose okupirale maštu. Kakogod, ova crvenkosa nosi tamni šal, plavu majicu i vintage aviatorske naočale...možda vozi motor, možda nešto drugo...kako god ima avanturističkog duha u sebi.


  1. Ja bas nisam od avanture, barem ne ovakve...motor i to ;) Od nakita, kada ga nosim...volim da bude komad ali efektan ;)

  2. Impressive Ivana! Buona domenica cara

  3. Još jedna zanimljiva ilustracija. Sviđa mi se!

  4. Baš mi se sviđa ilustracija :)) Ja volim jednostavan, a efektan nakit i nikad ne izlazim bez prstenja :)

    1. hvala ti...i meni je takav nakit najdraži, a i prstenje volim.

  5. This is beyond beautiful!
    Kisses from Miami,

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.

Today I'll show you two ways to style a scarf: one is by wrapping it around your headband and the other by using it as a belt for your dress.  I'm also going to link up old posts with more ideas for styling this scarf, offering you about a dozen ideas. The first idea is a common one. Wearing a belt around your dress is an easy way to accentuate your waist. The other outfit proposal shows a fresh styling trick: wearing your scarf wrapped around your headband. Yes, you read that right. This is actually such an easy way to make the most out of your headband(s). I own only one headband but by wrapping different scarves around it, it seems like I have a dozen of them.  As for the two outfits I'm going to show to you, they are both summer ones. The colour palette for these looks is pretty neutral, but I jazzed it up by choosing printed white items. I do like the freshness that the white colour offers, but as a lover of prints I tend to compromise by opting for printed white ite…


I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping).  I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also li…


Today I'll show you seven ways  to wear a black maxi dress. This beautiful vintage dress was gifted to me by a family member. I don't own many solid black maxi dresses (probably because I'm addicted to bold prints and colours). I do own quite a few little black dress (because a LBD is such a classical piece) but not that many black ones in maxi length. In fact, I believe this is the only plain black maxi dress I own. I find it really easy to style. I treat this maxi as a neutral piece and I wear it all year round. I actually added embroidery to it (it's a hobby of mine) but the embroidery detail isn't that big (for now) so I tend to style it as a plain black dress. By that I mean that I like to have fun with accessories when I wear this dress. I often wear it with statement necklaces I made myself or similar eye-catching accessories. Anyhow, I figured that with the summer to autumn transitioning that is going on right now, it would make sense to show you some tran…
