My Teddybear picks: How About A Hug?

I drew this teddy bear in pencil over a year ago, as a part of my Inspired by series. If you are interested in the story behind this drawing, you can check out this old post of mine. Basically, it was the first time and so far the last I illustrated someone's toy. Matea Šarić, a filmmaker from Croatia, made a documentary that is all about people's connection to their stuffed toys and named it Geography of Tenderness. Here is a link to her YouTube channel in case you'd like to have a look.  It's her teddy bear I illustrated. Anyway, recently I have edited this drawing and made it available for purchase via my redbubble account. What do you think about the editing? I'm very content  with the drawing itself but I'm not sure about the editing. It is a definitely a skill I'm still learning, but I think this design looks alright. Funny how it looks more like digital art than a drawing now. I'm so glad I started to work in pencil more. I do feel like painting is meant to be my media, but I do enjoy drawing as well. What do you prefer to see on my blog? Drawings or paintings?  Do you want to see products from my redbubble shop account or would you just like to see art on its own? I've shared another similar post with my designs back in April (here), in case anyone is interested. Today I have selected some of my a fav teddybear designs. Have a look and tell me what you think.

  10. This is such a sweet illustration! The Geography of Tenderness sounds like it would be quite fascinating. I still have a few childhood toys that I feel a deep connection with. I think you should share whatever you want to here. It's always a pleasure to see your creations.

  11. I love seeing all of your creations on your blog Ivana. You have such a talent, and it's so amazing to see what you can do with it!!

What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation  Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway. 
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended  up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …


It seems that white in winter is a real trend nowadays. Nobody lives following that rule 'no white after labor day' anymore. Today I've prepared some style tips and outfit information for you, because I do believe that white can be a great way to refresh our winter style. I'll be happy if I inspire you to give white a try. Anything from a white bag to white shoes can make your winter outfits more fun. So, why not give this lovely colour a chance? Here are my five easy steps to start wearing more white in winter right now. Most of these don't even require you do any shopping as I'm sure you'll be able to find at least some of these items in your closet. Sometimes it is all about reexamining what we already have in our closets. 


If you find wearing white overwhelming, you can always try baby steps. Start with white shoes (super trendy right now) and/or bag and move from there. Next thing you can do is try other white accessories, su…


I did a lot of reading this January& February. I even discovered two new authors that I plan to follow more closely, so I'm really happy about that. The same thing happened last year, if I remember correctly. There is something about the start of the new year that makes me motivated to read even more. As Asimov wisely said, self-education is best education. Not that I don't believe in formal education. I've spent a lot of money and time on my formal education. I've also invested in different courses and workshops. It is always easier to study with a good teacher. As someone who has worked as a teacher, I can see many benefits of standard education. However, it is also important to work on our education ourselves because we are the ones who know ourselves best (or at least we should) so we know on what areas we should work on. The way I interpret Asimov words is not a critique of formal education, but a call for continuous education. I'm a strong believer that …
