Hello, my dear readers ♥
Long time no art post, I know - but I´ve been drawing almost every day in the past two months for the upcomming tiny little exhibition. And now...it´s here !!!
This Saturday uwaaa *o*
I´m sooo looking forward to it !
I did a set of illustrations all inspired by works of amazing Pet-chan - the founder and designer of the very first czech lolita shop Porcelain Doll. I tried to use the name of every skirt to create a little story behind each of them through my pictures =)
They will be all displayed in Porcelain Doll shop in Olomouc, starting this Saturday (28th June) together with a tea party where I´ll be as well -> 600km of travel, but it´ll be worth of it, I´m sure =D
Soooo if you´re from Czech Republic you can still buy tickets here and come to see me, my "art", Pet-chan, a lot of cute people, win something nice in a raffle and do some sight-seeing in the beautiful Olomouc ♪
That´s not bad, hm =) ?
oh, and I forgot to say that the dress-code is not only lolita - you can wear all kinds of harajuku fashion like mori, gyaru, dolly-kei, visual-kei, decora, etc. ♥
Before I started to work on "Porcelain Dolls" illustrations, I was making designs for harajuku-fashion-themed buttons which were then for sale on the biggest anime con in Czech Republic - AnimeFest. And you can still buy them in Porcelain Doll shop and on booth at other conventions =)
Today I want to show them to you, because there is a looooot of new pictures comming after the exhibition...better start today ♪
My idea was to make sets of three buttons from each of the three styles I choose. It wasn´t that great idea in the end, since girls wanted to buy just some of them so from now on they will be sold separately =)
Every set consisted of a portrait, a name of the style and a quote I found matching with it ...
Let´s start with the one closest to my heart - mori-girl
the quote on the last button
"get lost in NATURE and you will find YOURSELF"
Second one was quite a challenge for me - gyaru
"better to be LATE that to arrive UGLY"
and the last one - punk lolita - was fun to draw =)
"well behaved women rarely make history"
I´m really looking forward to get some sets for me this Saturday ha ha =D I don´t have any since I wasn´t at the anime convention...but here is a photo Pet sent me to see how pretty they look *_*
Appart from working on all these things I managed to draw picture for a banner of my new Etsy store with harnesses and garters
...and two doodles in my sketchbook
totally random something
and a silly picture of my dear boyfriend being "specialized strategus" - a special way of concentration with a cushion on your head when you´re about to rule the world in strategy game on PC ........
Have a nice day, everyone ♥
...and maybe we will meet on Saturday ? =)
