Ilustrations of the day (hair) / Ilustracije dana (kosa)








There is a theme to my illustrations today: hair. One way or another, hair is important to all of us. Some women rock the pixie or shave their hair completely, becoming somehow even feminine. I strongly believe it can be a freeing experinece. However, I  just love to feel the heaviness of my hair hence I prefer to keep it long for now. Nevetheless, whatever our personal preference be, there is no denying how important hair is for all of us.

Današnje ilustracije imaju i temu: kosa. Na ovaj ili onaj način, kosa nam je svima bitna. Nekim ženama izvrsno pristaje skroz kratka kosa ili čak obrijana glava i uspijevaju postati čak i više ženstvene. Čvrsto vjerujem da to može biti oslobađajuće iskustvo. Ja osobno, volim osjetiti težinu svoje kose tako da je zasada držim dugom. Svejedno, koji god bio vaš osobni izbor, ne možemo zanijekati koliko nam je svima važna kosa.

  2. You are right! After keeping it very long for years, now that I have a bob I'm so happy with it! By the way the first illustration is so mysterious and hypnotic! Love it Ivana!!

  10. Slažem se da nekim žename neusporedivo bolje stoji kratka kosa koliko god ja na sebi više volim dužu ... mislim, bitan je oblik lica, a moj nikako ne dopušta kratku kosu tako da ...
    Prva mi je ilustracija najdraža... sviđa mi se koncept kose oko glave ... baš fora :)

  16. I am born with thin and very fine hair and have always been envious with people who has natural thick hair. You're right about hair being important, I think women especially get very sensitive about their hairs, I know I do. LOL!

  38. What intriguing and inspiring art pieces. It is true that some people rock the pixie do and I myself love it on many women but I just don't look good in them. Hence, like you, long hair for me now. It is true that whatever our personal preference be, there is no denying how important hair is for all of us.

  53. I love your illustrations, expecially the first and the last one! And I agree with you about hair. It's so important! No matter, long or short, it's really a great way to show our personality. For me, I've been having long hair for years and years, and now I'm thinking of cutting it very short. Not now, but maybe in few months. We will see. I feel that I need a change :-) Big hugs!

  58. Dear Ivana, I'm impressed and as usual I love not only your illustrations but have additional some thoughts to them. Maybe you know that hair is a symbol for freedom? I learned that some people lose their hair if they don't feel free or constricted. Therefore I love it to see that the women you painted have so powerful hair! Wish you an as happy as possible week <3

    Lovely greetings from Germany/Bavaria, Rena

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…

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.
