Drawing of the day (Capitoline Venus) / Crtež dana (Kapitolinska Venera)

Today I'm sharing with you an drawing, only a sketch really, inspired by Capitoline Venus. This statue has an interesting history, but isn't that true of all great art works? I wondered what she might look like today, you know,  if she came to life and we saw her on a street. So, it ended up inspiring me to make a fashion illustration. The medium is coloured pencils on paper.

Danas dijelim sa vama crtež, zapravo više skicu, nadahnutu Kapitolinskom Venerom. Ovaj kip ima zanimljivu povijest, ali zar to nije slučaj sa svim umjetničkim remekdjelima? Zapitala sam se kako bi izgledala danas, znate da oživi i da je slučajno sretnemo na ulici. Tako da sam dobila nadahnuće za modnu ilustraciju. Medij su bojice na papiru.

  27. I love how you've drawn inspiration from a statue to create something modern and fresh. Your illustrations are lovely and I particularly like the beginning stages where she can be seen in black and white pencil. Wonderful!!

    1. thank you dear, pencil sketch turned out better, I should have kept it as it was and not colour it with colour pencils, but I guess we live and learn, right?

WHAT TO SEE AND DO IN BLAGAJ ( BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA)

I truly enjoy showing you around Bosnia and Herzegovina. Have you noticed that? You know, there are some really amazing destinations in this country. Today I'll take you to beautiful Blagaj, located only a short drive from Mostar city. Blagaj is a picturesque historical village located in Herzegovina region. This little green river oasis is an increasingly popular tourist destination and not without a reason. Blagaj village has got one of the strongest and most beautiful river springs in Europe. This stunning and potent water spring creates Buna river and is a impressive example of karst river formation. Right next to it you can find a historical dervish house (tekija) that is open all year round. 
The dervish house dates back to the sixteenth century.  It placed right next to the entrance to the cave  where the river Buna springs from and it is an incredible site. The cliff over the cave is a very impressive sight as well! You can even go for a boat ride in the cave and see this…

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: ILLUSTRATED TOTE BAGS REDBUBBLE

I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping).  I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also li…

TWO WAYS TO STYLE A SCARF (SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES)

Today I'll show you two ways to style a scarf: one is by wrapping it around your headband and the other by using it as a belt for your dress.  I'm also going to link up old posts with more ideas for styling this scarf, offering you about a dozen ideas. The first idea is a common one. Wearing a belt around your dress is an easy way to accentuate your waist. The other outfit proposal shows a fresh styling trick: wearing your scarf wrapped around your headband. Yes, you read that right. This is actually such an easy way to make the most out of your headband(s). I own only one headband but by wrapping different scarves around it, it seems like I have a dozen of them.  As for the two outfits I'm going to show to you, they are both summer ones. The colour palette for these looks is pretty neutral, but I jazzed it up by choosing printed white items. I do like the freshness that the white colour offers, but as a lover of prints I tend to compromise by opting for printed white ite…
