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!

    1. I sure hope so....I really ought to start working out again, I can't rely on long walks anyway.

  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.

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…

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.

February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 








DIY PROJECTS 
I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
