Illustration of the day ( A Girl With A Camera) / Ilustracija dana ( Djevojka s fotoaparatom)

It was a sunny day today.  I wore leggings, a sweater dress and high boots (just in case anyone is wondering, it is this exact outfit minus the long blazer). I cleaned the house and opened the widows. The air felt amazingly sweet. Why is everything always easier when it is sunny? I stopped by two libraries (yes, two libraries- why settle only for one?).  I borrowed an edition of Hemingway's short stories and a second book in Bartimaeus Sequence and I'm very much looking forward to reading both of them.  A day filled with sunshine and good vibes. Just what the doctor ordered. 

Otherwise, life as usual. Lots of coffee (possibly too much). Lots of drawing (not nearly enough to end up with something I really like). Illustration after illustration after illustration...Today I finally remember to take photographs of this one. A blue eyed girl. A girl with a camera. Are you a person with a camera? Are you the one everyone asks to take a photo with? Do you enjoy photography?  if yes, in what way? Who is your favourite photographer? How do you take your photos? With a cam? A tablet? A cellphone/smartphone/iphone? Or in some other way?  I love photography....and I really really miss my cam. Its lenses broke months ago. I never suspected that I will miss photography this much. At the moment, I'm using a yoga tablet, but it is not quite the same.

Danas je bio sunčan dan. Nosila sam tajice, haljinu džemper i visoke čizme (ako ikoga zanima ovu kombinaciju   samo bez dugoga sakoa). Očistila sam kuću i otvorila prozore. Zrak je bio nevjerojatno sladak. Zašto je sve lakše kada je sunčano? Svratila sam do dvije knjižnice ( da, dvije zašto se zadovoljiti samo jednom?). Posudila sam kratke priče od Hemingwaya i drugu knjigu u ciklusu knjiga o Bartimeju i jedva čekam da ih pročitam. Dan pun sunca i dobrih vibracija. Došao kao naručen.

Inače, život kao i obično. Puno kave (možda previše). Puno crtanja ( ipak nedovoljno da budem s nečim doista zadovoljna.) Ilustracija za ilustracijom za ilustracijom....Danas sam se konačno sjetila uslikatu ovu. Plavoka djevojka. Djevojka s fotoaparatom. Jeste li vi osoba s fotoaparatom? Jeste li vi onaj kojega svi pitaju da ih slika? Uživate li u fotografiji i ukoliko jeste, na koji način? Tko je vaš najdraži fotograf? S čime fotografirate? S fotoparatom? Tabletom? Mobitelom/ Pametnim telefonom/ iphonom? Ili na neki drugi način? Ja volim fotografiju...i doista mi nedostaje moja kamera (leće su joj se pokvarile prije par mjeseci). Nisam nikada mislila da će mi toliko nestojati fotografija. Trenutno koristim yoga tablet za fotografije, ali nije to to.

  1. Ahrgh, too many questions. I have a Canon Ixus camera. I like it a lot. I like to take lots of pictures. I carry it in my bag at all times. It is thus very useful!

  2. I take pictures with both my camera and iPhone 6 and I can't imagine if my camera broke. I mainly use it for all my pictures so I am very dependant on it.

  9. I like your drawing of the girl with the camera very much, dear Ivana - perhaps because I'm a "Camera-girl" too? In my next post you will see the cameras which are preferred by my husband and me (and our new "monster"-teleobjective). And in my current post you can see some of the photos we prefer to take - pretty landscapes and details :o))
    Lots of hugs, my dear, Traude

  13. Hey hey how you doing dear Ivana?! I love sunny days! (Even tho I am not a fan of heat and high temperatures, but I can handle it because as you said it is easier to breath when the day has light :)) Ah and it doesn't matter if is cloudy, windy or sunny... Coffee is always mandatory to keep up awake and inspired, haha!

    Since forever I love to draw girls and boys with cameras, I don't know why but I really like the act, the pose and the purpose behind it: to create something immortal! The result of your illustration is beyond great, I really like the attitude of the girl and the colors you use! Hope one day we can do an illustration swap!

    All the best and thanks for your sweet comment on my leather jacket post!

  15. Prvi pasus = život je lep i život čine male stvari <3 Izmamio mi je veliki osmeh na lice :) Ima neke čarolije u sunčanom danu, možda baš u ovom periodu kad nisu svi dani sunčani. Nekad se i prezasitim sunca ali je dovoljno da se naoblači na par sati pa da ga ponovo poželim :) Mnogo mi se dopada što su tvoje ilustracije sada "bogatije" i za fotoaparat koji je tako žut sunce sam po sebi, a još u kombinaciji sa stvarnim suncem (ako se ne varam), onda je to šlag na torti :) Oduvek sam volela fotografiju, a uz muža sam dosta toga i naučila. Ipak uglavnom je on taj koji je iza fotoaparata, a kamera na mom mobilnom je uvek spremna za akciju, pa često na istom mestu uhvatimo sasvim drugačiji trenutak :)

    1. istina je...život čine male stvari i čine ga ljepšim. Hvala tu puno:)...da, to je sunčeva zraka... baš mi je bila namjera uhvatiti stvarno sunce da izgleda kao blic:)

  18. U ŠIbeniku skoro čitav dan pljušti kiša i još sam se više zaželjela sunca sad nakon što sam pročitala tvoj post...zaista ta njegova toplina neopisivo puno znači, ne može se to riječima opisati, a da ne spominjem koliko se ujutro lakše ustati iz kreveta :)
    O meni i fotografiji sve znaš pa bolje da se ne raspišem ko luđakinja sad u komentaru, a jako mi se svidjela ova ilustracija, baš je nekako upečatljiva, pogotovo još zbog te divne žute boje fotića! Sve si bolja i bolja, draga moja! :)

  25. A day of sunshine and good vibes sounds ideal for anyone and everyone! :) Sorry to hear your camera's lens broke recently, that would break my heart if it were me! I'm hugely interested in photography and try to bring it into my life into absolutely any way I can; forever changing my style and seeing what else changes because of it :) Lovely illustrations, the pre-finished version (minus hair, makeup and clothing) is also very interesting.

  26. Divna devojka sa fotoaparatom! Boje koje si koristila mi se bas dopadaju, jasne i optimisticne!
    Ja u zadnje vreme vise slikam mobitelom iz prakticnih razloga, mada dobar stari fotoaparat ipak pravi kvalitetnije fotografije.

    Lep pozdrav

  27. It is obvious, that people from the South, like you, drink an ocean of coffee daily! It must be becouse of the weather. I drink one huge mug of coffee in the morning, is like American coffee, not so strong and with whole milk added, but if is really hot, like 30 degrees and up, I love to drink second coffee in the afternoon... When it comes to camera I still own my Olympus very ancient one, and I need to buy something new, But I'm still short of money. I ussually snap with my phone, because I find this pictures not that bad :-)
    However, beautiful drawning :D

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…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
