Fashion illustration of the day (Happy Saint Patrick's Day!)/ Modna ilustracija dana (Sretan sveti Patrik!)

Today I'm sharing another fashion illustrations with you. The medium is acrylic on paper. I already shared it on my Instagram page, but I was waiting for today to share it on my blog because well it is saint Patrick's Day so I wanted to post something appropriate. On this day it is customary to wear green. Hence, the girl I illustrated is wearing a green outfit. 17th of March (the day of saint Patrick's death) has been an official Christian holiday since the 17th century. This day is  (as far as I know) observed by the majority of christian churches. Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. As one might expect, this day is especially celebrated in Ireland. The Feast of Saint Patrick can be defined as a religious and cultural celebration that takes place on this day. This celebration can come in many shapes and forms. These days, the Feast of saint Patrick doesn't only take place in Ireland, but all over the world. Have you ever attended it? I haven't, but I'm wearing something green today. That's my way of joining in the celebration. Have a great weekend everyone!

Danas sa vama dijelim još jednu modnu ilustraciju. Medij su akrilne boje na papiru. Već sam ju podijelila na svom Instagramu, ali čekala sam danas da je podijelim na svome blogu jer je danas dan svetoga Patrika pa sam htjela objaviti nešto prikladno. Na ovaj dan običaj je nositi zelenu boju, pa djevojka koju sam ilustrirala tako nosi zelenu kombinaciju. Sedamnaesti ožujka, dan smrti svetoga Patrika je službeni kršćanski praznik od sedamnaestoga stoljeća. Ovaj dan se koliko znam slavi u većini kršćanskih crkava. Sveti Patrik je svetac zaštitnik Irske. Stoga se ovaj dan posebno slavi u Irskoj. Slavlje svetoga Patrika možemo definirati kao religiozno i kulturno slavlje koje se održava na današnji dan, a može se pojaviti u raznim oblicima. Ovih dana, sveti Patrik se slavi i izvan Irske, pa zapravo postoje slavlja diljem svijeta.  Jeste li vi ikada bili na nekom takvom slavlju ili fešti? Ja nisam, ali nosim nešto zeleno danas, na taj način se nekako priključujem slavlju. Želim vam svima ugodan vikend!


Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

  5. E' incantevole questa illustrazione Ivana, così delicata ed elegante!
    Qui in Italia il St. Patrick Day non è così diffuso, nelle grandi città qualcuno lo celebra, soprattutto i locali fanno serate a tema, ma non è una festa molto sentita.
    Io non credo che festeggerò (soprattutto perchè non mi piace la birra), ma probabilmente andrò a vedere il Colosseo illuminato di verde! ^^
    Baci!

  15. I've never celebrated with a feast but I do try wear a little bit of green on Saint Patrick's day! :) I did wear a green tank yesterday even though I was only going to the local mother's group, and not a lot of others wore green.

    Hope you are having a great weekend!

  19. Seems like St. Patrick's day is huge here in Canada too but I know nothing about it as it's not celebrated in Malaysia. I should really read about it though, the origins of the celebration.

  26. Lovely illustration and beautiful movements, Ivana. Saint Patrick's DAy is not a federal holiday. Schools and businesses are open as usual. It's mostly celebrated in cities with a large Irish-American population, tho. They'll have a parade and such. Happy Sunday, luv.

  28. Nisam nikada prisustvovala toj proslavi ali mi je dosta poznato kako to sve izgleda jer je moj muž neko vreme živeo u Irskoj gde je to događaj godine :) Vidim baš da ti je "legla" zelena boja i inspiracija, a meni ne smeta. Ja je baš volim i sviđa mi se kako si pomešala dve različite nijanse u kombinaciji. Opet si uspela da stvoriš taj osećaj pokreta i razigranosti :)

  29. this outfit on your painting reminds me almost on a dancer: this looks like a body and a tutu, right? but these pumps may gave another look to this outfit. this is definitely a outfit to talk about.

    it´s a nice one.

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…
