I'm back with another original fashion illustration and design (the medium is watercolour on paper). This illustrated outfit is all about layering. Besides olive flare jeans, our blonde is sporting a jacket, a turtleneck and a cardigan over it. A nice faux fur scarf is a great way to add some drama into a winter outfit. In addition, she opted for black high heels, beanie and a little bag to dress up those jeans a little. What do you think about this outfit proposal? Would you wear something like this? Do you like the combination of colours (brown, dark orange, olive green and black)? Do you like pointy heels? I've just got a pair of pointy heels yesterday. You know, I've started to actively search for (and sometimes even attempting making) things I illustrate. I guess that is a proof how creating art can set our creative juices going. It can all be connected you know. Creative work that is. We don't have to put borders everywhere and divide everything all the time. Sometimes we should just let things flow and stop worrying about whether something is considered banal or deep. Perhaps there are no deep or shallow jobs or hobbies, there are only deep or shallow people. Life is what you make of it.
Sometimes I like to add backgrounds to my fashion illustration. Location illustrating is something I want to work on more this year. The background for this illustration is based on Croatian coastline, more precisely municipality Lastovo (google it if you want to see more). Lastovo municipality consists of 46 islands and it is a part of Dubrovnik- Neretva county in Croatia. The largest of these islands is Lastovo. The name of the largest town on Lastovo island is also Lastovo. This is sometimes the case with Croatian islands, the largest settlement being named the same as the island (for example the famous island Hvar). There are more than a thousand islands in Croatia (the number varies according to classifications criteria and whether or not you count small islands but it is a big number), so if islands are your thing, Croatia is a pretty good choice.
