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.

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
