Margarita (as an inspiration for a series of illustrations/ kao nadahnuće za seriju ilustracija)

It's been a while since I last posted my illustrations, so here we go. All of these illustrations were inspired by The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov (medium is watercolours).  Last month in this post,  I mentioned just how much I loved this book. I didn't write a review for this one yet, but when I do I will probably post in on my literature blog. Yes, I actually have another blog where I post book reviews. I plan to post book recommendations here, but I think it is best that I keep my book reviews on another blog because they are bound to be quite long. Last book I reviewed there was A Pale View of Hills by Kazuo Ishiguro (you can read it here). Anyhow, I think it is only natural that books inspire my paintings. After all, they were always such an important part of my life. 

Prošlo je dosta vremena od kada sam zadnji put objavila svoje ilustracije, pa evo ih (medij su vodene boje). Sve su ove bile nadahnute Majstorom i Margaritom Mikhaila Bulgakova. Prošlog mjeseca sam spomenula koliko mi se svidjela ova knjiga u ovoj objavi. Nisam još napisala ogled ovog romana, ali kada to napravim, vjerojatno ću ga objaviti na mome književnom blogu. Da, zapravo imam još jedan blog na kojem objavljujem oglede knjiga. Planiram objavljivati ovdje preporuke knjige, ali mislim da je najbolje da oglede ostavim na tome drugom blogu jer će sigurno biti malo poduži. Koje je zadnja knjiga o kojoj sam tamo pisala možete saznati ovdje.  Mislim da je posve prirodno da me za slikanje nadahnu knjige jer su uvijek bile važan dio moga života.

  15. Zanimljivo mi je vidjeti što različiti ljudi koriste kao medije izražavanja. Tvoje ilustracije su vrata u jedan poseban svijet, ne znam puno ljudi koji crtanjem puštaju maštu da pleše :)

    1. If I reveal that, it will be a spoiler for the novel:) It was inspired by the novel and the character of Margarita, that is all I can say.

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.
