World of brides

I've always been into weddings and brides. Many little girl thinks, what they would wear and how they'd plan everything. I went even more far away! I didn't just thought, what kind of dress I hoped to have, but I also drawn bridal gowns, and after I planned my own wedding multiple times, I started to play wedding planner. I started to think, what kind of wedding I'd arrange for others. I had wedding magazines, draws and lists. And endless amouth of imagination wedding couples. A little bit later came Jennifer Lopez's movie The Wedding Planner, what I totally loved.

In time I went over that phase, but my love of weddings staid. Always when I was in wedding or saw photos of those, I thought how I'd do that or that's something that I need to remember for future. Then years went by and one day I noticed, that I was actually working in that world!

I kept seeing in stores jewelry stands, that were shape of woman and wearing different kind of dresses. They were always too expensive or just so badly made that I never got one. One day I found one with so badly made dress, but it was only couple euros, so I desided to buy it. I got it to home and destroyed the dress. It was so cheap that I didn't had anything to lose. It was success! Dress was easy to take off and I had just naked jewelery stand. Weirdly my first dress wasn't bridal gown. I had lace ribbon, that inspired me to do my first dress.


At today I can see my mistakes and I know, how to do this so much faster, but I'm still happy how this end up to be. When I took this picture, I didn't had any idea how many I'll do in future. I'm just glad I started to take pictures of every work I did. For that reason I can share my story now!

Working with a giant project

I've been busy and it's easy to see from, how often I've been writing lately. Anyways in beginning I promised for myself, that keeping the blog isn't going to be something, that I let to stress myself. I'm using all my time and energy for the work, what I'm doing right now. I don't want to tell more about it now, but for this post's sake, I need to tell, that I'm working with Photoshop and using hundreds of hours for this.

The biggest challenge for me is, that I don't remember to take a breaks. Somehow drawing with computer, doesn't feel same way working, then sewing or painting. I easily forget to drink or eat. Suddenly I notice,  that I've been drawing four hours and haven't moved at all. In long run, this is really stupid and I'm trying to focus specifically to this. Currently I'm "watching" Netflix while working. More like I have it open and I'm listening and time to time looking what is happening. My idea f…

Giving second change for my markers and buying new ones

I've been really into Inktober. Even more then I waited to be. I waited to have more problems with keeping this daily schedule, but surprisingly, only one day was hard to get anything done. I've been focusing to drawing so much and haven't really felt like writing. I think it's partly because, I've just been drawing and not doing that much anything else.

I've used almost completely my original markers. I had my first Sharpies ever and they used to be enough for me. Just because I didn't used to draw with them. I basically used those just for writing. They are okay and good for practicing, but now I'm needing more and I'm waiting from mail, my new Winston&Newton's Promarkers. I read and watched Youtube videos about, what would be the best for me. Copics are known to be the best, but the price is just way too much. I trust to Winston&Newton as brand, based of their other products, like paints. Also some artists actually prefer them, over C…

Art and feelings - hospital art

If you are saying that art doesn't wake any kind of feelings in you, you need to stop at next time and actually give a second to look at it. Art can be powerful tool and mood effective. I'm talking now specially about art in hospitals and other public places. In this context, art can be anything from actual painting or photography, to color of walls or pattern of ceiling. I'm always focused the patterns of air conditioner's grids. It sounds so small detail, but every hospital room has it and after laying somewhere hours, you'll start to notice details on roof.

I've got my dear share of hospital time. Time in waiting rooms, doctors offices, examination rooms, wards... There is usually one common thing. Something on walls, that is meant to make place to look nicer, warmer, more comfortable... Sometimes even more home like. It can be anything from doctor's kid's or kid patients drawings to abstract professional photographer's ink test like photos. Eith…
