Pencil Drawing (The Making of): Outfit Post + Illustration (location Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Old Town and Bridge)


Today I'm sharing an outfit post and a pencil drawing. The drawing in question was inspired not only by the outfit I wore, but by the location as well.  When it comes to this drawing, the Old Town and the Old Bridge are drawn in quite a detailed way.  The location was a big part of what I tried to depict, so it's not a typical fashion illustration. It took me a long time to finish this one, as there were many details to capture. I included quite a few  photographs of the so called WIP that is 'work in progress' because I know that a lot of people enjoying seeing the process of drawing. As far as the outfit goes, it is a pretty candid representation of what I wear when it gets quite cold. Nothing beats a nice long puffer on those cold days, right?


I don't know if you can tell (though the cap and the gloves I'm wearing are a pretty good indication), but it was quite cold when these photographs were taken. Apart from the cold, there wasn't much else to complain about, for the day was quite lovely and sunny for most part. No surprise, as  Mostar is known for its sunny weather and the colder months are really no exceptions. We get plenty of sun and I absolutely love it. Have you ever been to Mostar? Are you planning to visit? This Old bridge you can see behind me is one of the best known sights in Mostar. Some might even call this bridge a symbol of Mostar.  It is certainly one of the most visited sights. Speaking of which, I'm thinking of putting together a little virtual tour of Mostar city. Would you like that? 

P.S. Sorry for being MIA for the last few days, I was in Croatia and I forgot to pack my laptop with me. I'll catch up with all of you tomorrow.

  6. It has been freezing cold all over the place and so I applaud you for taking these photos haha :) The scenery there is breathtakingly beautiful; I can't get over how incredible it must be to have mountains as your backdrop on so many days of the week. I hope you had a wonderful time in Croatia, Ivana! Lovely idea to illustrate your own outfit by the way, it's like a permanent record of your styling :)

    1. I love being surrounded by mountains. I lived in quite a few cities in my life: Split, Dubrovnik, Rijeka, Catania, Palermo...and I was always lucky to be surrounded by mountains.

  7. This was such a fascinating look inside your creative process! Your cold weather accessories definitely gave a hint to the frigid weather.

  10. Diventi sempre più brava a disegnare Ivana!
    Realizzare dei paesaggi così articolati non è semplice, soprattutto per via delle diverse propsettive, ma tu sei riuscita benissimo a rendere il panorama!
    deve esser stata proprio una bella giornata, anche se fredda, il cielo è di un'azzurro spettacolare! :D
    Baci!

  12. I love your drawing - so detailed! Oh yes, I would LOVE a virtual tour of Mostar - such a beautiful town! I think I might have told you before that I watched Rick Steves Europe (a celebrity who actually lives and works from nearby town! Edmonds, WA) where he took us to Mostar, Split... I was hoping to see you on the streets! :) I remember this old bridge very well!

    You look adorable in your winter attire, stay warm!
    Lots of love!

  13. I know I always say I admire the way you tell stories through your art but you're so talented and have the power to inspire me to keep creating (sometimes I get too lazy after work or house duties) but promise I'll put out my pencil to draw more and more :)

    I really liked how you took inspiration from your own living place and it couldn't be more beautiful Ivana!

  14. wonderful drawing, Ivana, nice to see you again! Last year I was in Croatia visiting Zadar, Split for few hours and the naturals parks Kirk and Plitvice and I was amazed how can be. Mostar was between my dreams but times fly and we couldn't. So close to you... you crossed my mind!
    wishing you the best

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…
