Travel Illustrations

I would like to share with you my newest illustrations. All these illustrations were created in my sketchbook using coloured pencils and markers. It was so interesting to create them as I didn't do any preliminary sketches. I absolutely love this new technique and I have a strong desire to update my portfolio with this style. I find it more modern and trendy. Your comments are very appreciated!! :))

Love Letters...

If I had to live my life without you near me
The days would all be empty
The nights would seem so long
With you I see forever oh so clearly
I might have been in love before
But it never felt this strong
Our dreams are young
And we both know they'll take us
Where we want to go
Hold me now
Touch me now
I don't want to live without you
Nothing's gonna change my love for you
You ought know by now how much I love you
One thing you can be sure of
I'll never ask for more than your love
Nothing's gonna change my love for you
You ought know by now how much I love you
The world may change my whole life through
But nothing's gonna change my love for you
If the road ahead is not so easy,
Our love will lead the way for us
Like a guiding star
I'll be there for you if you should need me
You don't have to change a thing
I love you just the way you are
So come with me and share the view
I'll help you see forever too

New Wave of Creativity

It is so heart warming being inside a cozy apartment, drinking French Provence tea with petals and dreaming about life. These past days, I've been feeling as if something important has happened in my creative life. As you remember from my previous posts, I've been searching for a new wave, for a new touch. I was looking here and there and yet could not find it. I could feel sometimes this new style coming so close, yet I could not express it on paper. Two days ago, my dream came to pass.
It was a beautiful morning and after having my morning tea, I decided to go to the bookstore and draw with my newly bought coloured pencils. When I got in the store, I had an urging desire to buy a new Moleskine Sketchbook! even though I already had one. I could feel that something very important is going to happen in my life. So I bought it, got some inspiring books and found a quite seat. As I was flipping through the pages of these books, I could feel through the pages this inspiration coming. I started drawing, not like I used to draw before (first the sketch with graphite, then transfer to a good paper) - no, I started drawing with a gold marker! :) It was so new to me. Then colours came to my mind.. I started drawing and drawing. So in these past days, I can clearly see my new style and I would like to share it with you.

My new creative life

My dearest readers, I would like to share with you my newest illustration and also what's been happening in my creative life. I've recently started creating an art journal, it is basically a journal filled with inspiration, thoughts and dreams. As I was creating collages, I was thinking about what's deep inside my heart and I could feel that there is a strong desire, need to work on my style and come up with new ways of expressing myself. As you noticed, all my ladies and gentlemen have their eyes closed... and that's how I used to illustrate for years. Something is happening deep inside of me and I have a strong desire to open their eyes. This is my first illustration that has a lady with her eyes wide open. I think it's very symbolic and spiritual. As if a new wave of creativity and life came inside my heart. All I want is to catch it and express it on paper.

There is water that flows on us from Heaven. It brings us hope, It brings us love.
Then, you fly away and you will never be the same. I am inspired, I am amazed.
When I feel inspiration is as if I touch Heaven. The feelings are so deep.

Sometimes I wonder, if only I could capture this feeling like a photograph, how would my paintings be...

Blissful Moment...

We can find beauty all around us, it just depends on how we look at things. A few days ago, I bought so many apricots and was thinking of baking a pie. They were all scattered around me on a round wooden table and I could feel their sweetness in the air. I could feel inspiration coming while I was drinking coffee and searching for the right recipe.

I think that we can have so many blissful moments in life, we just need to notice them and record in our memory. This way these moments will pile up and create a blissful life.

Nashville Love illustration

I absolutely love divine desserts. I like flipping through the pages of inspiring books and drinking freshly brewed coffee. I like tea with rose petals...

I would like to share with you my newest illustration that I created for a Nashville Magazine. This is going to be the cover page of Nashville's events calendar. I was inspired to make it very elegant and divine.

This illustration reflects romance, seduction and beauty. They are in deeply in love and despite all the crowd around them, they fly away on the wings of love. This illustration reflects their first dance. They barely know each other, yet they are in love. They've been waiting this moment since they were born, dreaming about.

He said: "I've been waiting you all my life."
