Fashion illustration of the day / Modna ilustracija dana 7.10.2016.

Hi there! How NOT to stay fit during Autumn? That should be my topic today because it seems that I'm doing a good job out of it. It turns out that all my talk about enjoying long Autumn walks was just that- only talk. I’ve been planning to spent as much time outdoors as possible (because I truly adore this time of the year), but somehow everything got in my way and I totally forgot about that decision/intention. I don’t think that rain is to blame, even if it didn’t exactly help. It all culminated this afternoon, when I went to buy some bread and I ended up being short of breath. How is it even possible to get out of shape in a few days? Maybe it is this cold I can’t shake of. I’m pretty sure I was in a fine (well decent) shape a few days ago. However, ever since it has started raining, I’ve been spenting even more time than usual reading and studying ( I'm not yet ready to stare what I'm studying, something new for me). Add working on some new exciting drawing projects to the mixture (plus a bit of blogging-always!) and voila- you get one Ivana out of shape. I suppose we can’t have it all. Sometimes the price for happy fingers is unhappy spine. Right now, after drawing for straight two hours my fingers are pretty content, but my spine is not thanking me…I think it is time I go out for a walk. Anyhow, this is not one of the drawings I was working on today, but you'll get to see those soon enough. I draw this girl a few days ago. I quite like how she turned out. I’ll let you know what happened with that walk and .....did I manage to finally tear myself away from the computer screen/notebook/sketchbook/The Golden Compass (that’s a book I’m currently reading)?

Zdravo svima! Kako ne ostati u formi tijekom jeseni? To bi mi trebala biti tema jer mi to očito dobro ide. Ispada da je je sva moja priča o uživanju u dugim jesenjim šetnjama bila upravo to- samo priča. Planirala sam provoditi što više vremena vani (jer stvarno volim ovo doba godine), ali nekako mi je sve stalo na put i skroz zaboravila sam sam tu odluku/namjeru. Mislim da nije kriva kiša, iako nije baš pomogla. Sve je kulminiralo ovoga popodnevna kada sam išla kupiti kruh i ostala bez zraka. Kako je uopće moguće ispasti iz forme u par dana? Možda je to ova prehlada koje se ne mogu riješiti. Koliko znam, bila sam u pristojnoj formi prije nekoliko dana.  No, otkada je počela kiša, provodim još više vremena čitajući i učeći  (nisam još spremna podijeliti što to učim, nešto novo za mene). Dodajte tomu rad na nekim novim uzbudljivim projektima crtanja (uz malo bloga-uvijek!) i eto Ivane koja nije u formi.Valjda ne možemo imati sve. Nekad je cijena za sretne prste- nesretna leđa. Sada, nakon što sam puna dva sata crtala, moji prsti su jako zadovoljni, ali leđa mi ne zahvaljuju...mislim da je vrijeme da odem u šetnju. Uglavnom, ovo nije jedan od crteža na koji sam radila danas, ali vidjet ćete i te uskoro. Nacrtala sam ovu djevojku prije nekoliko dana. Sviđa mi se kako je ispala. Javit ću vam što se dogodilo sa šetnjom i jesam li se uspjela otrgnuti (konačno) od kompjuterskoga ekrana/ bilježnice/ papira za skiciranje /Zlatnoga kompasa ( to je ono što trenutno čitam)?

  3. Don't worry Ivana, if it took just a few days for your body to feel unhappy with not moving around enough, it'll take just a few to reverse the damage! I've no doubt you'll be feeling fabulous after a fast Autumnal walk or two :) These illustrations are very 'summery' and yet thanks to the mustard-coloured top, they seem sort of fitting with the season as well! Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Dear Ivana, I'm convinced you are still very well in shape and you are only to hard to yourself :) I know you are used to walk a lot! Hopefully now your cold has gone away and nothing is able to stop you from walking! Personally I know I'm not always in the same shape ... there are days I can walk miles and miles without feeling any burden and there are days I don't feel I'm in very good condition :) And I see your drawing skills are still very well in shape as you produced again a wonderful illustration!

  5. Don't you be silly, you are slim and fit! And talking about getting fit, I have been slacking about my yoga this week too, only practised twice instead of my usual 4-5 times this week. Sigh...

  14. Joooj ne spominji leđa, ja zadnja dva tjedna samo sjedim po čitav dan za kompjutorom pa se onda s laptopom prebacim na krevet u malo udobniji položaj kad osjetim da se raspadam i tako u krug. Eto, nisi jedina kojoj je aktivnost spletom okolnosti pala u drugi plan...a ne mogu ti opisati koliko sam sretna što imam Fridu zbog koje dvaput dnevno napravim dugačku šetnju, spašava me! :)

    Jedva čekam čuti što to novog učiš i divna ti je ilustracija, baš mi je lijepo vidjeti malo i radove s bojicama za promjenu! :)

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.

INSPIRED BY.....NATALIA LIALINA

Hello everyone and happy hump day!How are you doing? I hope you had a lovely week so far. It's been a while since my last Inspired by post, hasn't it? Well, today I'm back with another Inspired by... feature.  As some of you know, this is a regular feature on my blog that is all about illustrating bloggers I love and that inspire me. I always say it's one of my favourite features and it truly is. Over the years I had the chance to illustrate many many bloggers and it's always something I enjoy doing.
Moreover, I enjoy blog recommendations posts and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I discovered some wonderful bloggers through other bloggers and that's always lovely. This regular feature of mine is  not just about illustrating, it is also a kind of a blog recommendation post, because it gives me a chance to share bloggers I love with you. This time I have illustrated Natalia from @inthewriterscloset.  You can check out her blog here

A GRACE KARIN DRESS: VALENTINE'S DAY OUTFIT PROPOSAL

What to wear for Valentine's day? I'm sure many ladies (and gentlemen) are asking themselves that question. I can't offer much personal experience on dressing up for Valentine's day when it comes to gentlemen, but I can tell you what I've learned as a lady. I can sum it up in two main points: find something that will make you feel special but make sure you're comfortable at the same time. After all, you want to feel special on this lovely day, don't you? Now, you can define special anyway you want to. Moreover, you must also consider one important fact and that is how you are going to celebrate Valentine's day. If you are celebrating it by going on a hike with your significant other, obviously you'll ditch the heels and wear hiking boots. However, that doesn't mean you can't wear a pretty dress! My advice is to take a moment and plan your Valentine's day outfit, that way it will surely feel special. There are other things to consider as…

WINTER DESTINATIONS HERZEGOVINA: MOUNTAIN PRENJ, RUJISTE

A HERZEGOVIAN WINTER FAIRY TALE

What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation  Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway. 
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended  up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …
