Wearing a T-shirt with a Printed Fashion Illustration: Yes or No?




As far as I can remember, I've always loved fashion illustration and clothes. Both art and clothes always seemed to me like a great way to express our creativity. Mixing my love for fashion with my love for art always came naturally to me. Speaking of which, I find the idea of a fashion design (fashion illustration) worn on clothes utterly fascinating.  In the past, I even  used to paint and draw fashion illustrations on clothes.  However, recently I've learned there are some other (more modern) ways to convey and transfer fashion illustrating onto clothes (and other products). Long story short, I've opened a Redbubble shop (see it here or look me up under 'ivanakada').  Basically, Redbubble is an online shop that features works from thousands of independent artists. Today I'm sharing some of my fashion designs now available via the above mentioned shop. Let me know what do you you guys think. Do fashion illustrations look good printed on tops and other products or not? Do you like this idea? Or would you prefer to see something different? Well, I hope you don't terribly mind this idea because today's post will basically be devoted to my fashion illustrations printed on clothes.

As the post title indicates, today I've shared  with you clothing items with prints of my fashion illustrations, but there are also other products available on this site. Since I've opened an account a few days ago, I've kept busy uploading my art. I can't give you my full review of this site yet, because I've only been using it for a few days, but so far it seems easy to use. Customizing your designs on products can be a bit time-consuming, but only if you take the time to edit everything. You can take a more relaxed approach if you're not a perfectionist, but unfortunately I am exactly that.  Not only did I spent a lot of time customizing my art to fit the products sold in this shop, I also made special designs to better fit the products. It's been kind of addictive, I have to admit. Time just flies by when you edit and customize your art. 

Anyhow, I know you bloggers are a creative bunch, so if you are looking for a place to upload your photography, art or writing, this is one of the sites where you can do it. There are other sites as well, I'll share them with you once I figure them all out or learn more about them. I'm looking into it as we speak, reading site reviews, forums and so on. Naturally, I've also looked this site up and it has really good reviews, but as I said I haven't ordered anything from it so I can't recommend it in that sense- at least not yet. The concept of this store is that the artist can set the fee himself. The standard fee is 20 percent, but I've set it to 10 percent to start off easy.  This is neither a sponsored post, nor are there any affiliate links in it (there are links but they are not affiliate). It is just a quick post to inform you about this site and about the fact that some of my art is now available there. As you might know I like to keep it real.  If you've used this or similar sites in the past, feel free to share your experiences. Have a nice day!

  4. I'm not at all surprised you've found the process to be addicting, this must have been so much fun to put together - and what an achievement too! I've loved seeing your artistic journey as well as how your illustrations have grown over time Ivana, and looking forward to seeing all you have in store for us here on your blog (and business ventures!) :)

  6. Wow, I think this is simply brilliant! I love the fact that you get to combine your art into clothing. It's such a creative avenue and I'm already curious about this site even though I do not paint digitally or manually but I used to. I have siblings who are designers and perhaps they might find this site useful to diversify their artistic talents. It's really lovely that you share this because sometimes, we just want a tee that is customized with art that we personally love and this is fantastic :) I hope you are well there and I send you happy wishes <3

  11. Congratulations on this new adventure, Ivana! So nice to see that your illustrations are now available in other surfaces such as clothes! Need to try this platform but as you say illustration and art can find many ways to come to the real life! Paper is just the beginning and the first surface but the possibilities are infinite!

    Good luck with your t shirts, they are more than good! I really really LIKE the result of this experiment!

AN AUTUMN OUTFIT AND A BOOK REVIEW (EAST WEST BY SALMAN RUSHDIE)

Hello darlings! It's suddenly gotten a lot colder here, but I still have one warm autumn styling proposal to share with you. I wore this cute neutral outfit while the sun was still shining bright. On that lovely sunny day, I decided to pair my white (authentic) folklore shirt with a striped mini, dark leggings and a dark green vest. I finished this look with my brown boots and a tartan belt. Besides this outfit, I will share another book review on my blog today. East West by Salman Rushdie also happens to falls into category of magic realism. I'm no stranger to Salman Rushdie,  I read Midnight's children a while back and I started but never finished Satanic Verses. This is the first time I read his short stories, though.  I really liked this collection and I can't wait to tell you all about it.

KAFKA ON THE SHORE, A NOVEL BY HARUKI MURAKAMI (BOOK REVIEW & OUTFIT PROPOSAL)

Hello, my darlings! I will be sharing two things with you today: a book review and an outfit post. This cozy outfit proposal features two printed items: a printed scarf and a skirt. The bluish scarf was a gift from a friend and I like how it looks with this camel coat (another gifted item). The wool/silk printed skirt is old, a creation from fashion house Edi. You had a change of seeing this unique floral print on the blog here , here and here. Under the camel coat I have worn this white blouse and this red blazer.  I completed the outfit with a red beanie and high brown boots.  It has gotten colder in Croatia even on the shore. Speaking of the shore, Kafka on the Shore is the novel I will be reviewing today.

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…
