I've going trough a rather strange period in my life. On daily basis I struggle with ongoing fever (for weeks now) for which I know neither the cause nor the cure. On other hand, I'm full of ideas and I stay up late working on so many different things and projects.  I've many idea but no naive optimism. More than ever before, time seems relative.

Prolazim kroz neko čudno razdoblje. Svakog dana borim se sa povišenom temperaturom koja traje tjednima, a kojoj ne znam ni uzroka ni lijeka. Sa druge strane, puno sam ideja i svake večeri kasno idem na spavanje jer radim na toliko različitih stvari i projekata. Imam puno ideja, ali ne više naivnog optimizma. Više nego ikad prije, vrijeme mi se čini relativnim.

  3. Ma non sei andata dal medico, avere la febbre così a lungo non è mica tanto normale!
    Le tue foto ed i tuoi disegni sono davvero belli, ma per il momento riguardati e riposati, di certo ti farà bene! :)
    Baci!

  5. I think you are at the moment in a really important phase in your life which is absolutely necessary for your personal development. About fever I learned that there is anger inside of the person who has the fever but the person doesn't really allow to give this anger space ... In my opinion there are many good reasons for you that you are angry as - I think you know my opinion - life is not always nice to you. The paintings are kind of therapy for you and I think if you look on the parts which you aren't able to finish on your drawings there is a inner blockade in you about the regarding theme. I hope I'm not too open with my words. If yes, feel free to delete immediately this comment. As usual I like your drawings and the cat is so cute ...

    1. naturally it is possible that my health problems might reflect my psychological/ emotional experiences lately. However, as I said these days I feel very calm so maybe painting was indeed some kind of therapy for me...though sometimes painting can also be frustrating, especially when I'm not entirely happy with my work:) but on overall it does make me feel better.

  6. It's more than interesting to see your constructive process and works in progress. The last two paintings I like most of all, that seascape is amazingly beautiful, it seems to me that I feel that fresh salty air and calming murmur of the forest. Amazing work, Ivana! Keep it up!

    1. That one with the sea is finally finished...or at least I think so...I've hang it on a wall today and will give it some time before I decide do I want to fix anything. The second one will remain only a sketch I'm afraid...or maybe I'll try to transfer it on canvas one of these days.

  7. I would like to taste the cake! I wish you good luck with your work in progress. :)

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…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
