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.

Is anything as lovely as a sunny spring day? I missed reading outdoors, I can tell you that. Sitting on a bench on a nice spring day, with a nice book in one's lap, now that has to be one of the greatest pleasures in life. Speaking of reading, March has been a good reading month so far. As loyal I am to my favourite writers, I also love to discover new ones. I try to read at least one new author every month. This March I read two American authors for the first time: Kurt Vonnegut and John Green. Naturally I heard about them before. Both of them are quite well know, but this March marked my first introduction to these two. They are not the only 'new' writers I tried this month, but more about that some other time. Earlier this month, I read Kurt's Player Piano and Green's Fault in Our Stars. I liked Player Piano much more that Fault in Our Stars but I was kind of expecting that. I'm happy I read both, though. It is just that Kurt's writing is more my cup of…


Hello my dear readers! Today I'm back with another post from Makarska city, a very popular coastal touristic destination in Croatia. If you remember, I went to Makarska on the first of March to visit a family member. I went back again last Friday (exactly a week ago) and the weather was dreamy. We had a great time, we sure did.  In this first photograph, you can see me standing in front of Franciscan monastery and church of Blessed Virgin. I will write a more about this monastery some other time, and today I'll show you a bit more of Makarska city itself and show some of its many attractions (like the main city square and the church of Saint Mark the Evangelist). If you haven't seen it yet, feel free to check out my recent post about Makarska. You can also check out this old Makarska travel post (dating to March, 2016). As you can see, I've been to Makarska a few times. Not nearly enough, if you ask me. It is a beautiful city and I think I even prefer it in spring sea…


January and February have both been quite eventful months for me. A mix of good and the bad you might say, but all in all I can't complain. After ten long years I'm finally in remission, so that's amazing news. Fingers crossed things stay that way. I can't tell you how relived and happy I am to be in remission. I lost all hope of it (to tell you the truth) but then when I didn't even think about it, it happened. That's life, isn't it? You never know what the tomorrow might bring. Both good and the bad. I suppose that's the fun in living- not knowing. I know  it might seem a bit late, sharing January and February highlights as late as mid March, but I finally found some time to put this post together, so let's do it. Scroll down to see some of my January and February highlights.


Most of the trips I took this January were to areas located in vicinity of Mostar city (where I'm still based) but in February I visited Croatia. I&…
