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!!

  12. This drawing is wonderful Ivana! I really like that you transfered it onto a mug also.

  14. It's wonderful - cute drawing, and your edits are very nice! Toys are important even to adults. I have one of my old dolls here with me, and Justin has a couple of his old teddy bears which are as old as he is. :)

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 …

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…

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…
