MY FASHION ILLUSTRATIONS: SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING OLD AND SOMETHING BLUE
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.

NEW FASHION ILLUSTRATIONS
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.
OLD FASHION ILLUSTRATIONS
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.
BALLET INSPIRED ART
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.
