Fashion illustration of the day (purple) / Modna ilustracija dana (ljubičasta)

Late Summer. Finally, I can sense the transition in the air, that sense of change that is so much more than just the fact of temperature starting to drop. The nature is starting to dance according to a new beat and everything is about to change. The air is beginning to cool down, epecially in the morning and in the evening. Still, the Summer lingers. Caught between the seasons feels like being caught up in some old memory, Hidding away from life in some old jazz bar, caught between the desire to act and to withdraw. Yet, what is life? Isn't it also memories and being wrapped up in our thoughts? Isn't it also a sense of change and uncertainty?

Kasno ljeto. Mogu konačno osjetiti promjenu u zraku, taj osjećaj promjene koji je puno više od samo pada temperature. Priroda počinje plesati na novi ritam i sve će se uskoro promijeniti. Zrak postaje hladniji, pogotovo ujutro i navečer. Ipak, ljeto je još uvijek tu. Uhvaćena između sezona, osjećam se kao da sam u nekom starom sjećanju. Skrivam se od života u nekom starom jazz baru, uhvaćena između želje za djelovanjem i povlačenjem. No, što je život? Zar nije i uspomene i izgubljenost u vlastitim mislima? Zar nije i osjećaj promjene i nesigurnosti?

  17. Ah the way you describe summer now is just so poetic and this illustration is beautifully done and presented with the colored pencil shavings. Summer does not seem to want to leave us in NYC just yet as we seem to be in the midst of another heatwave. I'm actually kind of happy about it :)

  22. Baš tako, život je i to. Ja prva ne mogu da pobegnem od vlastitih misli (ne znam da li iko može), a taj osećaj promene mi nekako uvek budi kako dobra, tako i loša osećanja. I ovde se oseća ta neka promena koja možda nije toliko vidljiva jer je leto baš steglo ovih dana, ali oseća se. Mnogo mi se sviđa kako si iskoristila parčiće od rezane olovke kao deo kreacije. Oduševljavaš me iznova i iznova :)

  23. Ideja da upotrebis ostatke od nasiljenih bojica kao komponentu sa ilustraciju haljine je odlicna! Vjerujem da bi haljina divno izgledala da je se sasije, stvarno si nevjerojatno kreativna i inovativna! :*

  25. Dear Ivana, today I am especially fascinated by these drawing - and particularly by your idea to use the "waste" from the pencil sharpener for decoration! Brilliant!
    Lots of hugs from Austria,

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.
