How is life treating you, my lovely people? Today I'm back with another fashion illustration post. Recently, I went exploring my art collection because I wanted to gift some of my art to a friend of mine. As much as I love art, I must admit I quickly became quite bewildered and overwhelmed in the process. I do my best to organize my art, but somehow my efforts don't seem bring in results. I have so much drawings, paintings and illustrations- in all possible mediums. Different mediums need to be stored differently and at times it seems too difficult a task for one person. I'm not exactly an expert on storing art. I know how to make art, but how to take care of it is a whole another skill. Sometimes I don't manage to storage my art properly and it ends up getting destroyed. 

Trying to find space to properly storage all of my illustrations and painting all is proving to be a challenge. After a while I felt utterly tired, so I gave up on trying to organize my art and just left it as it is. The whole episode made me feel down. I know that it should be the other way around. I know that I should be happy that I own so much art, but somehow I'm not. It is hard to explain. Does that ever happen to you? That you can't manage the things you have? That you just can't handle things? I don't want to sound ungrateful. I'm grateful that I have a chance to live, to breathe and to pursue art. I'm just saying that it's not always easy. Sometimes I feel like abandoning it all, fashion illustrations & art, but I know I won't because I'm addicted to it. 

Anyhow, today I'm going to show you some of my new & old fashion illustrations. I've been sharing a lot of my art lately, haven't i? I've also been making tons of it and man do I feel exhausted. Therefore, I decided to make today's post short. Perhaps better to say I decided to make the writing shorter. I'm going to prove that I can post something that isn't two thousand words long. However, there will be plenty of photographs and art so the post won't be that short. I'm hopeless, I know. 



I've been experimenting with making fashion templates for myself. I always made my own, I never copied others so I decided to copy some of them and then use them to drew different outfits. Do you get what I'm saying? Draw a body, copy the illustration in a copy machine and then drew an outfit over it. It seems like a good way to experiment with fashion templates.  Scroll down to see what I mean. Bellow you can see my original drawing decorated with rhinestones (you already had a chance of seeing this one here) followed by a copy drawing I drew over.

I've also made some fashion collages for you. The one above features a girl wearing a purple gown in the snow. Needless to say, it is not what I wore when I took this photograph. I dress a bit differently when it is snowing. Bellow you can see a collage made with one of the photographs I took at Buna some time ago and completed with my new fashion illustrations. How do you like it? I've been drawing green outfit lately. I've also been kind of obsessed with polka dots, scarves and polka dots. My fashion illustrations often reflect my fashion obsessions as is only logical, I guess. 

As I said, I've been working on new art. Bellow you can see a mix of old and new art. I'm planning another giveaway next month, so tell me if you see something that catches your eye. You can give me suggestions about art giveaways, I'm quite open to that. I'm thinking maybe one giveaway a month. What kind of art would you like to receive? Just don't say the girl in the red dress because I have already gave that one away. 


I'm exploring the idea of copying some of my fashion illustrations. Perhaps that will make organizing them easier. I do have a copy machine at home  so I made some copies. It was interesting to see my works printed in black and white. This is a Balenciaga fashion illustration I made a few years ago, but I'm not sure have I shared it yet or not. I think I only shared it on my Instagram

 Below is a copy of my watercolour fashion illustrations by Stella (on the left) and Chanel (on the right). They look quite interesting this way. I don't typically sell my prints, so I don't have a lot of experience with the whole printing process. All the art to be found in my tictail shop is original, but I have a print option available in my redbubble shop. Maybe some day I'll sell my prints as well, depends on the fact whether the originals will sell, I guess. If they do, then I might ibest more time into that. 


While browsing my old art, I also stumbled upon some ballet inspired art. It's been a while since I last saw a ballet performance. Well, I suppose I can at least see it on paper. How do you like these two illustrations? I also decided to do one collage...and that would be all for today.

  1. Uno più bello dell'altro! :)

  2. My dear! You are so talented!! <3 Believe me.. everyone could see in these works so much passion, art, light and shadows.. so much emotions, something that only art can explain! I love green to, you know? Maybe because woods make me feel better, leaves male me feel quiet, and my depression is less strong when I can see green tones in Nature or flowers, blue sky and white clouds. Mia cara stella, sei veramente brava. E non pensare che non hai talento, se a volte ti senti vuota e non hai più voglia di disegnare. Capita così, agli artisti VERI. Perchè l'ispirazione viene e va... e quando se ne va è solo perchè ha bisogno del suo tempo. Una fenice non muore mai, così le passioni autentiche! Ti voglio bene!!!!

    1. grazie cara amica, e si sono d'accordo....yes, art can be tiring but it doesn't mean we should give up.

  3. Ti sei evouluta molto nel tempo ma il tratto e i colori sono rimasti gli stessi! Io sono estremamente disordinata perciò io lascerei i disegni ovunque!

  4. These are all so beautiful and creative. It's like you speak through your art and you have a beautiful artistic voice.

    I also know what you mean about getting overwhelmed sometimes even by things I should be grateful for. When that happens, I'm slowly learning to turn to my loved ones for help and they help me put things in perspective.

  5. This happens to me all the time. I have so many clothes that often I am overwhelmed by it because I only live in a small space, but they bring me joy and are my passion, so I find often it's because we can't organise things well, or we don't have the room, so it makes us down about something we love.

  8. These are so beautiful, I love when you add embellishments to your artwork, it makes them come alive even more to me. And the repeating pattern of some of them is very striking and fun too. Love it all. I hope your week has been lovely, I am ready for the weekend now!! Have a sweet day x

    1. thank you dear! I'm ready for the weekend too.

  9. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by the amount of photos which I made so I understand you.
    Beautiful illustrations, you are really creative and talented person.


    1. that's another thing we can easily get overwhelemed with!

  10. Hello Ivana
    I can tell you that it happens exactly with me but in relation to my clothes, when I start a tidying up, I get tired because I lose myself in the middle of so much clothing but I am very grateful to have this whole clothes because I love each and every piece of clothing has a history.
    I adored your new art with collages and woman you are a hard worker, so many and so beautiful works !!


    1. yes, that happens to me when I start tidying up my clothes too!

  11. Your illustrations are great!
    You're talented.
    Feeling blue is not cool, but in a way it's inspiring.

  12. So beautiful and creative! Congrats Ivana

  13. Wow, your paintings are so beautiful, I love it! I hope you will find a properly storage for them ;-)

    xxxxx Nadine

  14. Muy bonito todo!!! Espero verte pronto por mi blog!!!
    Feliz año, bonita!!!

  15. Pensa che io invece periodicamente butto via la maggior parte dei disegni e delle illustrazioni vecchi (ho buttato anche quadri ad olio), perchè rispetto a come disegno ora mi pare che siano bruttissimi e fatti male!^^
    Insomma mi chiedo come potrei tenere delle cose di un livello così basso anche solo a distanza di un solo anno!
    Naturalmente non è che butti proprio tutto, ma quel poco che tengo è facile da organizzare!
    Comunquer a me piace sempre molto vedere le tue ilustrazioni e le tue idee, mi piacciono soprattutto il primo look (quello in verde) e il disegno della ballerina!

    1. grazie Silvia. Per me e' difficile buttare via miei designi ma certo che e' piu facile da organizzare pochi designi. Sono curiosa da vedere i tuoi designi!

  16. I just adore the ones with the jewels on them Ivana. For some reason the mix of media just seems to add so much interest to the art.
    As for storing them, that such a good question. At least you take photos of them, because in a way, that's keeping it all in one place.
    I do that with my knitting projects. I try to take a photo of them and keep the printed photos in a photo album since I give many of my pieces away.

    1. thank you dear, mixed media is always fun!

    2. and yes taking photos is great too, I give a lot of my art away as well.

  17. The jewels are such a fun addition! :) I find it hard keeping things organised, bot art obviously, I have no talent there, haha! But just general things in the house - it's difficult having everything perfectly organised and stored away !I'm trying to declutter more so we have more space, but the toddlers are quite needy so I can't always dedicate the time I'd like to, to tidying up!

    Hope that your week is going well :) Still so hot and humid here with the heatwave!

  18. Combinations are amazing :o


  19. I can easily noticed that you are so so into art. You love it and I can feel it- so many great piece of art . Thst so great idea to share this art on bags, notes etc Awesome post xx

  20. Dear Ivana, I think it is a blessing that you are creating so many art! I see again how talented to are and therefore each single illustration and other art you created are important and enriching for this world! But I can understand you feel overwhelmed and I can imagine it is difficult to organise all the art. Maybe it works when you take pictures of your art, give each picture a number, write down the number on the art and put a collection of art in a box and another collection in another box. Than you can make a table in your computer with a little picture of the art and the number. Maybe you can even sort your art according to the subjects? But honestly I'm convinced you will find the perfect solution for you.
    Thank you for sharing all the wonderful things you have created recently and in the past!

    1. That's a great idea.I think the best thing to do would be to opt for a single format, maybe A4 or A2. That would enable me to store them with more precision.

  21. The fact you love to create art in a range of different mediums suggests you're a true artist Ivana - control isn't a word artists love anyway, haha! :) I love seeing what new illustrations you'll come up with; the different textures in particular are a lot of fun to see! x

    1. trying out different mediums is a great learning experience.

  22. I adore how colorful these illustrations are.
    Really amazing my dear.

  23. so much passion works...wonderful.
    greeting- evi erlinda

  24. I always love seeing your artwork over on Instagram and I love that you gift some to your friends as well. I completely agree - storing and organising your artwork can be so difficult but I hope you will be able to find something or some way that works well for you to do that!

  30. heal from broken heart" I wish I could find the right words to say how thankful I am to this love spell caster called Dr Ahmed for bringing back my husband after he left me and our 3 kids for another woman, after 12years of marriage, me and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me and moved to California to be with another woman. I felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. I tried to be strong just for the kids but I could not control the pain that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because I was really in love with my husband. Every day and night I think of him and always wish he would come back to me, I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help get ex back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a (Love spell) for me. 18 hours later, my husband really called me and told me that he miss me and the kids so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day, with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pains he caused me and the kids. Then from that day, our Marriage was now stronger than how it was before, all thanks to Dr Ahmed he is so powerful and I decided to share my story on the internet that Dr Ahmed real and powerful spell caster who I will always pray to live long to help his children in the time of trouble, if you are here and you need your Ex back or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact this powerful spell caster now. Here’s his contact:

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.
