Purple/ Ljubičasta (fashion illustration/ modna ilustracija)

I think this is the longest I have ever gone without posting anything. Ever since I started my blog, I've been posting very frequently.  I had a lot of posts prepared ( I always do) but I don't like posting when I don't have the time and energy to visit other blogs (and this flu really got to me). I don't see the point in posting if I know I won't be able to answer the comments. I'm not saying that is the right way, but it is my way.  I've been thinking about blogging lately and I think that following other blogs might be enough for me. I have more than a hundred already written posts, but I'm not sure do I have the need the post them. Maybe it means that it is time to let go of this little place of my own. Perhaps retiring is not a bad idea. I'll figure it out. In the meantime, I'm sharing this fashion illustration with you. I illustrated an all purple outfit, very feminine and if I can add quite Spring appropriate. Medium is watercolour on paper (I did a sketch in pencil before applying watercolours). I didn't use a reference for this girl, I was inspired (as often) by more than one person. Landscape is typical for my illustrations, I think that my need to always have a hill in the background has to do with the cities I live in. As for the outfit, it is something I would love to wear myself. Another thing.... I have always loved purple.

Mislim da je ovo najdalje što nisam objavljivala od kada sam započela ovaj blog. Od samoga početka bloga objavljivala sam jako često. Imala sam jako puno (kao i uvijek) objava u pripremi, ali ne volim objavljivati kada nemam vremena i energije za posjetiti druge blogove ( ova gripa me baš umorila). Ne vidim smisla u objavljivanju ako znam da neću imati vremena odgovoriti na komentare. Ne kažem da to treba tako biti, ali to je moj način.  Razmišljala sam o svemu tomu i mislim da je možda praćenje drugih blogova za mene sasvim dovoljno. Imam više od stotinu već napisanih i pripremljenih objava, ali nisam sigurna da ih imam potrebu objaviti. Možda to znači da je vrijeme da ga pustim. Možda je vrijeme za mirovinu. Razmislit ću. Vrijeme će pokazati.  U međuvremenu, dijelim ovu modnu ilustraciju sa vama. Ilustrirala sam posve ljubičastu kombinaciju, jako ženstvenu i ako mogu dodati baš prikladnu za proljeće. Koristila sam olovku za skicu i vodene boje za popunjavanje ilustracije, a radila sam na papiru. Krajolik je tipičan za moje ilustracije, mislim da se moja potreba za brdom u pozadini može povezati s gradovima u kojima živim. Nisam koristila neku fotografiju ili slično kao referencu za djevojku, nadahnulo me (kao često) više osoba. Što se tiče same odjevne kombinacije, to je nešto što bi i sama voljela nositi. Još nešto...uvijek sam voljela ljubičastu.

  3. Dear, you're so talented!!! This illustration is gorgeous and so is her outfit! ;)
    As for the blogging thing, I think we'll all know eventually when it's time to retire, if you don't find the same passion for it as in the beginning maybe that's an alert. Or maybe you just need a break, not necessarily a retire. Whatever the case is, we, your readers, will understand. :)

  4. Ljubičasta je baš lijepa, moćna boja.
    Što se tiče bloga, razumijem dio s potrebom da budeš tu i odgovaraš mada, po meni , ništa se neće desiti ako malo kasniš jer svi imamo živote pored bloga i nismo u mogućnosti sjediti i čekati da netkokomentira, pa da odmah pišemo odgovore. bila bi šteta da prestaneš pisati, mislim da ti je ovo divan kanal i medij (drugi blog znam da imađ, ali ne pratim) i bilo bi mi žao da se potpuno povučeš. jesi razmišljala uzeti jednostavno pauzu od bloga? malo ohaneš, pogledaš svijet oko sebe, vidiš treba li što mijenjati u blogu..lako ćeš prestati s blogom, samo nemoj prebrzo donijeti tu odluku ;) sretno s virusima, nadam se da ćemo s proljećem svi biti zdraviji

  5. OMG Ivana, 100 post written, I feel lucky if I have two post ready! I usually do one at a time...
    I hope you feel better now, I have a flu jab every year, I do not want to catch it and cancel a trip or something...
    Once you have more energy you will be thinking differently, flu can leave you so lack of energy that you probably need a break, when I got the flu being student I fall to the floor unconscious for the fever, flu can be very bad.
    Your illustration is beautiful

  9. that is probably the most lovely woman I have seen you do, dear. Very gorgeous! Fully understand the whole retirement thing. Blogging is still fun for me but Instagram changes have made that a real pain and I get much less joy from it. So it is tough to get motivated. Thanks for the well wishes and I send some to you too to heal from your illness

  16. Divna ti je ova ilustracija, možda mi je jedna od najdražih u zadnje vrijeme! :) Što se bloga tiče, znaš i sama koliko krizu sam ja prošla sa svojim, kako sam također nestala na neko vrijeme i bila gotovo uvjerena da ću ga ugasiti...ali onda sam se malo vratila unatrag, sjetila se zbog čega sam sa svime počela, što mi je najvažnije i shvatila da zapravo puno toga trebam promijeniti kako bi u potpunosti odražavao ono što sam ja sad, a ne što sam bila prije 4 godine i odjednom se stvar pokrenula sama od sebe :) Možda tako i tebi treba vremena da sjedneš i promisliš o nekim stvarima, trenutačnim interesima i onome što ti je najvažnije i onda će se odgovori pojaviti kad ih najmanje očekuješ :) Samo polako! :*

  18. Meni bi bilo mnogo žao da napustiš blog ali te ujedno razumem i jer sama ponekad dođem do zasićenja. U svakom slučaju pauza dobro dođe u svemu pa neka to bude makar jedna pozitivna stvar koje je proistekla iz dana kada ti je bilo loše. Prati ritam koji tebi odgovara. Sve ovo oduzima jako mnogo vremena, kao što znaš i sama, a svi mi imamo i stvarne živote koji su daleko važniji od ovih virtuelnih.
    Ilustracija je san snova! Zaista mi se čini da je svaka još bolja od prethodne. Divan je spoj boja, položaj tela, a i frizura i kombinacija su nešto što bih rado nosila ;)
    Želim ti lep vidend :)

    1. hvala ti, ponekad nam stvarno treba pauza...a što se ilustracija tiče, drago mi je što ti se dopada... trudim se da mi modne ilustracije ne izgledaju sve isto, već uvijek nastojim naslikati drukčiji položaj tijela. Skupljam nadahnuća posvuda pa se to sve nekako skupi u jednu ilustraciju.

    2. Moram da ti priznam da sam i sama bila u debeloj krizi ovih poslednjih dana ali rekla bih da sam bolje sada. Nadam se da si i ti <3 A što se ilustracija tiče, trud se primećuje i mislim da napreduješ velikom brzinom :)

I want to have time to visit and leave some love on every blog I visit, and it makes me feel bad when I don't. It's nice to know that you think about it this way though. I don't find it odd. I find it very reassuring that people like you still exist. Thank you! Whatever you want to do with your blog, that is up to you. This is your space, but I like reading about your travels!

  30. Dear Ivana, hope you feel better now! And personally I would be sad if you would retire with your blog - but I think this is a decision which only one can do for oneself. At least I had the honour and pleasure to know you personally through your blog what I really appreciate. I think sometimes things are "finished" and we don't need to do them anymore and it happened already often to me in my life.
    As usual I really love your illustration - now I want only to own such a dress in reality :)
    Hope you will recover completely soon!

  31. Oh no, Ivana, I know you're not feeling well but I hope everything is okay and you'll change your mind about retiring from the blogsphere. I don't understand what's in the air recently, there's been a few bloggers whom I follow who have mentioned about retiring too. But a part of me understands why...blogging is consuming, time, mentally and emotionally too. I hope you'll stay, you're one of my favourite. ;-(

I tako i je...10-ak dana ništa, a onda u četiri dana tri posta, i ja zadovoljna...i tako to radim za svoj gušt, a ne lovim brojke ili posao preko njega. A kada je tako, imam svu slobodu svijeta. Uzmi pauzu kolika ti treba, ali nema potrebe da gasiš, prije ili kasnije će ti biti žao. :*

  36. Hello lovely lady. Your illustrations are fabulous as always. You have true talent for transferring emotion in your art. As for the blogging, my advice would be to simply follow your heart. Take a break if you need to do so. I did right after starting LiWBF. I am on a writing break as well. Taking a break from the rigors of indie publishing has definitely helped me to refocus and recharge. Yet one thing I can promise you is that no matter how much time you need to figure things out, your readers and friends will understand. We'll still be here waiting when you return. You're a great person and it shows in your posts. The blogosphere needs lights like yours to shine. However, whichever way you decide to go, you have my support.

    Hugs to you!

Ajme... necu moci objaviti nista tjedan dana, necu moci ici na druge blogove, sta ce cure misliti... nemoj se opterecivati time!

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.
