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.

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…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
