Inspired by Jodie's Touch of Style


Time for another Inspired by feature and if you are a regular reader you know what that means. I'm going to share an illustration inspired by the blogging world. It's basically a blog recommendation accompanied by my art, usually my fashion illustrations. A fun feature, isn't it? Today post was inspired by blog Jodie's Touch of Style. Jodie is a blogger who typically shots outfit posts together with Charlotte and Nancy.  Sometimes they also feature other ladies on their blog. Anyhow, all three of them have a great sense of style. They show us that you can always have fun with clothes! I wanted to illustrate them for a while, and now I have finally made the time and made two fashion illustrations. These illustrations are what I'm going to share with you today. As I said, I have prepared two fashion illustrations for you today. I have drawn one of them in the typical 'fashion illustration' elongated style and the other in a semi-realistic style. The first stylized illustration depicts Jodie and the second drawing depicts all three of them: Jodie, Charlotte and Nancy. Scroll down to see more!



 The first illustration I'm sharing is a fashion drawing of Jodie, done in the fashion illustration style. This illustration was inspired by the last outfit Jodie shared. I do like the yellow accents in this look, the yellow bag and earrings. Lovely camo shorts as well. It's a look from their camo themed post, and you can see how the three of them styled it here. I wanted to drew all of them in this style, but I was short on time and it was a few days since my last post. Maybe next time. I do have another fashion sketch of three of them together and that's my second illustration of the day. 

The second illustration is more of a sketch, but I think it turned out alright. This fashion sketch depicts three ladies, Jodie, her mother Charlotte and stepmother Nancy. This illustration was inspired by their post from 22nd of August. It shows the ladies wearing amazing open shoulder tops that Charlotte sewed herself. I'm currently in fashion sewing school myself, so I it is great being able to see and draw hand made items. I do like these outfits, the yellow accents are fabulous and an ice-cream is always a great photo prop. Maybe in the future, I'll do another fashion illustration of these outfits in a larger format.





How do you like these fashion drawings? Do you like the outfits I illustrated? The medium for both of these fashion illustration is coloured pencil on paper. I also used markers to add some finishing touches. The first drawing I shared was drawn on a paper from my sketchbook, the format is approximately A2. The format for the second illustration is A4 and it was drawn on ordinary printing paper.  That would be all for day. Today post won't be very long. Just my 'Inspired by' drawings and that's that. Let me know how have you been? I'm in so much pain that I can't even think straight, let alone put it in words. Living with an immune disease just never get easier and that's a part of my life that I can't help but hate. But let's talk about something more uplifting. How do you like this feature? Would you like to be featured yourself? I can't promise anyone anything, but you never know- some day I might draw you to. Thank you for visiting this little digital place I call my own.

    Your illustrations always impress me, you are so dedicated and I like the colours. I do like the way you have featured the 3 women together- they look fab. AND you are in Fashion school? How cool to make your own!

  29. Hey dear Ivana, hope you had a good summer! I'm back with new content and is always good to visit your space and get a blast of inspiration :)

    Love all the content you're sharing lately, and love specially when you take inspiration from bloggers to create new illustrations. I like to see the real version of the look in the IG photo and then how you interpret it through strokes, paper and different materials! I like the colours and specially the last illustration with the 3 women together.... they look like the best fashion squad!

    Best regards and thanks always for your feedback :)

  30. Hello Ivana
    I loved your post.
    I'm also a friend blogger of Jodie and her mothers.
    I saw this look from Jodie and I loved the look of the three with the off-shoulder blouses sewn by Charlotte. I also have a passion for illustrations although I think you draw much better than I do.
    They are very inspiring and I bet they will love this that you have done for them.
    I realize your health problem, now that I have discovered my health problem I have to have appoitments in a hospital that is a 200km from my house, because as it's a rare disease there are few medical specialists in this disease. I am waiting for they call me to finally start a treatment that I still do not know well what it will be.

    Quanto alle illustrazioni, trovo entrambe molto belle, ma devo dire che quella che preferisco è la seconda: anche se è solo abbozzata ha dei colori bellissimi e molto freschi e risulta davvero graziosa! :)

  45. I love all of these! honestly one of my goals are to be featured on this segment of yours - I need to start learning how to dress up properly haha. the way you always photograph flowers and little bits and pieces with your drawings are always super cute. I also really like how I have the opportunity to see you get better at this as well! you've always been good but I feel like you're definitely falling into your own style more and I literally adore that!

  52. Your drawings are so much fun these days. I feel there's more fluidity, texture, colors and everything that makes them jump out at us visually. I love these. I'm sorry that you are in so much pain. I hope you take the time to just simply be and take the right course of actions during this challenging time. Be with your body as it needs you. And yes, I would love for you to do a drawing of me one day in the future! It would be super cool and I know I will love it :) Sending you a lot of love and restorative energy..

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.

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. 








DIY PROJECTS 
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…
