Today I'm sharing two pencil drawings with you. For the first one I used a photograph from Matija Vuica's Instagram account (you can see it here) as a refrence. Matija Vuica is one of my favourite  Croatian fashion designers. If I had to explain why in one sentence, I would say because her designs are unique, dramatic, feminine and theatrical. The second drawing is a fashion illustration of one Croatian singer wearing one of Vuica's creations. That one I did in typical fashion illustration style, so for that one I didn't use a specific photo for a reference. I looked at photographs from that old campaign and I picked one dress I wanted to illustrate. That would be all for today. Have a lovely Sunday!

Danas sa vama dijelim dva crteža olovkom. Za prvi sam kao referencu koristila fotografiju s Instagram profila Matije Vuice (koju možete vidjeti ovdje). Matija Vuica mi je jedna od najdražih hrvatskih kreatorica. Kada bi morala objasniti zašto u jednoj rečenici, rekla bi da je to zato jer su njene kreacije jedinstvene, dramatične, ženstvene i teatrealne. Drugi crtež je modna ilustracija jedne hrvatske pjevačice koja je nosila jednu od Matijinih kreacija. Taj sam crtež nacrtala u nekom tipičnom stilu modnih ilustracija, tako da nisam koristila baš određenu fotografiju po kojoj bi crtala. Pogledala sam fotografije iz te stare kampanje i izabrala jednu haljinu koju sam htjela ilustrirati. To bi bilo sve za danas. Ugodan dan želim!

  5. Both illustrations retain much of the spirit of the inspirations you drew them from but they also have a good dose of your artistic spirit and personality. It's impressive the amount of detail you were able to create using just pencil.

    2. to portray details in an accurate way.

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. 

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…
