Black Marker Fashion Illustrations + When Winter Refuses To Go Away: All Black Outfit Proposal


There is a stark contrast between the black marker fashion illustrations/sketches I'm going to share today and my outfit. The fashion sketches are all about spring and summer, while the outfit is all about winter. The only thing they have in common is that they are both in black. So, I figured I can post them together. I made these sketches last summer and originally I didn't plan to share them on my blog, but now I decided to do so because I've spent quite a few hours drawing and painting yesterday and that made me realize how important sketching is. Free styling things is everything when you'e trying to find your own style. Yesterday I've even used markers again (to work on my new illustrations), so that made me reflect not just on drawing with markers but on the importance of drawing from head. I have even made a little drawing/painting video but I'm not sure am I going to post it or not. Would you like to see it?

Painting from memory or imagination is my favourite thing to do. However, (as you know if you have been reading my blog) lately, I've been making so many catwalk illustrations based on recent fashion collections (my  way of catching up with the fashion weeks), that I didn't really have time for sketching. Yesterday, I decided to make some time. I'll probably show you how that ended up soon enough. Today I'm showing you these old old sketches. The bottom line is that sketching is a  a great way to get new ideas. Often my sketches end up becoming paintings. Sometimes I'm so caught up in improving my technique that I forget to sit down and just create art, draw what I feel like drawing, without plans or expectations.

Black Marker Fashion Illustrations + When Winter Refuses To Go Away: All Black Outfit Proposal


Now, about the outfit. All black styling with red details. A lots of black faux fur (a faux fur stole and faux fur leg warmers). This red cap is one of my favourite ones. It was a gift from my husband. He have it to me on our second date, ages and ages ago. He said that he saw in a shop window and it made him think of me. Isn't that cute? What do you wear when it gets really cold? These photographs are a bit ironic. The Japanese cherry tree is blooming, the sun is shining, and yet I'm all wrapped like I'm going to face the worst of winter weather. Looking at these images, it feels like I'm overreacting. It's sunny, how cold it can be? Well, you'll just going to have to trust me. It was very cold.

  1. These are beautiful. I love the simplicity of the black marker. It's still cold here, yesterday and today have been dry so far, bright but still cold. I just hope Spring weather will be with us soon enough, it feels like a very long winter xx

  4. Lovely sketches hun, I always enjoy your fashion illustrations. :) And the hat is super cute and looks so warm and comfy! It was so nice of your husband to get it for you as a gift. And honestly, in terms of the weather it's the same over here. There is sunshine and it looks deceptively warm, but it's actually still freezing so I always wrap up warm. :) Thanks for sharing, lovely. x

  5. Painting from memory or imagination must be such a great way to cultivate your creativity while working on your technique. The story behind your cap is really sweet and that was really thoughtful of your husband. I get the irony. I took photos of a cherry blossom tree in our garden as it was being covered with snow in a snowstorm last week.

  7. Hey Ivana, I must say that I love that you're lately drawing fashion from runway and new collections, this is definitely one of the things I like the most when it comes to fashion illustration but of course the possibilities of art and illustrations are endless and this is the cool part, that when we get tired of something we can change in a bit of minutes :D

    I love to make illustrations also with black lines (I could use ink, marker as you or sometimes just a pen) because sometimes simplicity is also good to appreciate the simple kind of life ;)

    Love the result and your outfit is a great compliment to the art in this post!

    Best!

  8. You did an excellent job using a black marker Ivana! I imagine it's harder than a pencil or such. But your attention to detail is so good. The cherry blossoms are beautiful there. It's warm here, so I think the feel of winter is behind us.

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.

WHAT DRESS TO CHOOSE THIS AUTUMN? SPECIAL OCCASION OUTFIT IDEAS

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

How To Style A Grey Sweater Dress in Autumn? Outfit Proposal of the Day

HOW TO STYLE GREY FOR AUTUMN/WINTER?
I was just thinking how grey doesn't always get the credit it deserves. Sure, there are many enthusiasts of the colour grey, but even among those of us who like grey, there are many lessons to be learned. One of the mistakes we make when styling grey items is to forget that grey does come in so many shades. It's kind of obvious, but it's easy to focus on the classical grey tones and forget to explore this colour in all its complexity. Not to mention that styling the lighter shades of grey can be a great way to refresh our autumn/winter wardrobe. Sometimes it does seem to me that grey is one of the most underestimated colours out there. However, that all might change as grey has been trending a lot lately. For example, you can have a look at some of my runaways picks bellow. 
Neutral outfits composed of lighter shades are a great way to stay away from the typically dark outfit combos. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with dark …

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art.
