Fashion illustrations of the day (green dress, blue swimsuit) / Modne ilustracije dana (zelena haljina, plavi kupaći kostim)

Today I'm sharing two illustrations with you. The first one is combination of a painting and a drawing (mixed media watercolour and markers), while the other is a drawing but also mixed media one (coloured pencils and markers).  The style is a bit different than my usual illustration, but you know me- always mixing it up. The first illustration is that of a green dress with big sleeves. I do like the trends that came about this Spring. I'm a big fan of colour green so all these greenery vibes really make me happy. Not to say anything of the statement sleeves. I think this trend is here to stay. The second illustration depicts a summer outfit. I love illustrating swimsuits.  The location I had in mind for the second illustration is this one (just in case anyone is wondering). 

Danas sa vama dijelim dvije ilustracije. Prva je kombinacija slike i crteža (mješani medij: vodene boje i markeri), dok je druga crtež ali isto pomiješan medij (bojice i markeri). Stil je malo drugačiji od mojih uobičajenih ilustracija, ali znate mene, uvijek nešto novo uvodim. Prva ilustracija je slika zelene haljine sa velikim rukavima. Sviđaju mi se trendovi koji su se pojavili ovoga proljeća. Veliki sam obožavatelj zelene boje, tako da mi ovaj zeleni trend odgovara. Da ne kažem ništa o upečatljivim rukavima. Mislim da će se taj trend i održati. Druga ilustracija prikazuje ljetnu kombinacija.  Volim slikati kupaće kostime. Lokacija koju sam imala na pameti kada sam naslikala drugu je ova (u slučaju da se itko pita).

  3. Very nice! Have a lovely Day! 👌👌👌

  4. Both are really lovely! I hope you've had a good weekend :) xx

  5. Adoro le tue illustrazioni, lo sai, sei davvero brava e mi piace sempre molto la scelta dei colori che fai!
    Kisses, Paola.

  6. Both are really nice, good job on the brick work in the first one, Ivana.
    latest look: Glitter And Gingham

  7. That is such a lovely shade of green you used for the dress in the first illustration! I feel like I need to find something in that color to wear now :) And you did a really great job of capturing the spirit of summer in the second illustration. Nailed it on the location as well :)

    1. thank you Rowena. This shade of green is lovely, perhaps some day I'll use it to make a dress ( I will need to learn how to sew properly first). I'm glad you like these illustrations.

  8. So nice!!!!! Congrats!

  9. I see so many people rocking green, and the shade you used in the first sketch is really nice, I just have the hardest time wearing green. I'm trying to challenge myself to wear it more often as I do have a few green pieces in my wardrobe, but it's not easy for me like say blue or purple!

    Hope you have had a great weekend! :)

  10. Good job! :)
    Thanks for sharing!

  11. They're both really beautiful, but I just love the second :)

  12. Divne ilustracije! :D

  13. I want that second dress for the beach, it would be looking awesome!! I have transparent pants in this style, but haven't tried them out yet :D




  14. Molto belle entrambe le illustrazioni Ivana!
    Mi piace soprattutto la prima, hai reso davvero bene il vestito! :)

  15. Thanks for the great post) Have a nice week!

  16. look super amazing...xx

  17. both are pretty! love the way you made a transparent dress for the bikini outfit. gorgeous :)

  18. Ivana, I like the green one... I like poofy sleeve myself and green is a pretty color... also that is cute purple sheer cover up over the bathing suit... very nice.

    I wanted to thank you so much for all the lovely comments you left on my blog, I was incredibly touched with how thoughtful and caring they were. I am sorry I didn't get back to you sooner but I was in terrible pain and not able to write ... which was difficult for me... My doctor gave me a new prescription that seems to helping ease the pain... Finally I can get back to writing and blogging, I missed both a great deal ... I hope you have a lovely week ahead xox

    1. poofy sleeves are always fun, right?

  19. Predivne su obe, a za trunku vise mi se dopada kupaci kostim :-*

  20. I do so like the first one, it is a delightful colour and I love how your hem of the dress looks like it is really 3d!

  21. Green is such a great color and just screams life to me. It's that time of the year when we see it all over. I love the big sleeve trend too and believe it's not going anywhere anytime soon. These illustrations are so awesome Ivana. You know I'm art illiterate but I know a good piece when I see one. So much details covered especially in the bathing suit piece. You really need to take this talent to the next level. Kudos for work well done as always darling!

    I hope you enjoy a fab weekend. I am pooped with all the work and protocol for closing of school on Thursday but I'll try to enjoy my weekend regardless.

  22. Nice green dress, Ivana! Love the puff sleeves! xoxo

  23. Both illustraions are breathtaking ! You are talented :)

  24. Another fabulous art job by you here. Wonderful!

  25. Gorgeous pics, I especially love how detailed the second one is! :) I do really love the colour green, but I don't think I own a single green item in my wardrobe. I always found it a little difficult to wear on me, but I do really like it on others. Perhaps I should change that! The dress in the first illustration is super beautiful. <3 Thank you for sharing your wonderful art with us! xoxo


  26. Very pretty!

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…
