Sketches of the day / Skice dane











I never underestimate sketches and doodlers. Sometimes they have a life of their own. They capture what I'm feeling at that moment. Sometimes they turn into paintings. Most often, they're tiny oasis of peace, composed of seconds but powerful enough to stop the time for on heartbeat and remind me ...Remind me of how hungry my hands are...burning to create, to wonder across that piece of paper free and inhabited. 

Nikad ne podcjenjujem skice i škrabotine. Ponekad one imaju vlastiti život. Hvataju ono što osjećam toga trenutka. Ponekad se pretvore u slike. Najčešće su pak, male oaze mira, sačinjene od sekunda, ali dovoljno snažne da zaustave vrijeme na trenutak i podsjete me koliko su zapravo moje ruke gladne stvaranja, žudne slobodnog lutanja po tom komadu papira.

  5. I agree with you on sketches. You never know what they will become or where they will lead you. I find myself doodling all of the time.

  7. It's so true that sketches do have a life of their own just like any other artistic endeavors. It sounds like you can just settle into your own world when you're working on your art :) Have a lovely week!

  8. Sketches are another form of thinking, of expressing ideas or letting out mind wander. I went through a phase of doodling goth fairies and now, seeing your sketches today, I am rather missing them. Fashion illustrations are fun and I think they would make a cool print on fabric. Imagine a dress covered in fashion sketches. xoxo

  17. Great sketches dear! and yes, I agree with you about them turning into oasis of peace. Most of the times when I feel down and blue, I turn into art and start doing something. No matter how simple it is, I also believe that any work of art can lift any soul <3

    love lots,

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY:A SUMMER DRESS (STAEDTLER PENCIL WATERCOLOURS)

Yesterday I tore myself away from the laptop to make a new fashion illustration. It's been a while since I made my last fashion illustration. I've been spending an insane amount of time behind the screen lately (who ever said blogging is easy, right?) working on new blog posts. At some point yesterday, I decided to get up, grab some watercolour pencils and paint a new fashion illustration. Friday Fashion Illustration is not the most regular feature on my blog, but this summer at least I can try to change that. While I was working on my new fashion illustration, I test drove watercolour pencils from Steadler  brand (not sponsored). It's been ages since I last used watercolour pencils. I'll wait for a bit before I give this brand a detailed review, but for now I can say that I quite liked these pencil watercolours. So far so good, you might say. Steadler brand claims to be sustainable and  sustainability is important to me. It is something that applies to every aspect o…

SUMMER READING AND REREADING UPDATE: P. MERIMEE, F.S. FITZGERALD AND M. VUKOVIĆ RUNJIĆ

Hello, darlings! How have you been? I finally found some time to sit down and write this bookish post. I'll share some summer outfits with you today, but mostly I'll talk books. Yes, it's time for another reading and rereading update! Summer is such a perfect time to read, isn't it? I mean, don't get me wrong, I love to read all year around, but I still see summer as the ideal reading time. I wonder why is it so? Maybe it is somewhat on a subconscious level, seeing all those images of people reading on the beach.  Is it because summer is the traditional 'reading time' for many people? Is it because most people go on their vacation in the summer? Is it because most people use vacation time to catch up on reading? Is it the bookworm in me getting excited getting excited about making the most out of the 'reading season'? Is it the joy of reading in the open? It might be any or all of these things, but I do enjoy reading in summertime. How about you? D…

A RED DRESS FOR A DINNER DATE AT RESTAURANT ASIA ( SPLIT, CROATIA)

If you know me, you know that I'll grab every opportunity to don on a statement dress. Life is to short to wear boring dresses. Nothing is quite as dramatic as a statement red dress, am I right or what? I was planning on walking miles that night, so I paired my red dress with comfy shoes, a straw bag and a pink blazer (just in case if it gets windy). I'm a fan of wearing dramatic dresses with comfy shoes, it makes them stand out more- and it can make the outfit not only more comfortable but also fresh. I wore this red midi dress with ruffled sleeves for a date night in Chinese restaurant Asia in Split (HERE- one of my favourite places to grab Chinese food in the city). I had a lovely time dinning there with my significant other. I pretty much always order the same thing: home made noodles with veggies and dumplings. As always, the food was yummy. This restaurant is located in my old neighbourhood Split 3 (address: street Poljička cesta 39 ) and I definitely recommend paying it…
