Studying 2023

I decided to start studying again next year. My ideas I will capture here and my thoughts. The garments will have his own post, but for so long I am going to get ideas.

What I am planning is a lot of beading, detail, menswear, a bit of womenswear, then pattern design in 2024, and yes going for the film industry.

I studied decor and make-up for three years, and then I did costume design and props for 6 months. I did costume design twice because I failed it when I studied.

This is my ideas what I like to focus on:

Model Figure Drawing Continue

I am still busy drawing my figure drawings. I got the design right now, so I am happy with the drawing. The first two are still not in shape. The third one is the one that I want to use for the front side. Four and five sketches are just line drawings, to make it simple. I just play a bit with the sketching with the pencil.

When you look at figure 5 on page 4 you will see this one is the one I spend the most time on. This is what my figures are going to look like in the mean time. I enjoy drawing, giving it shades.

You – For Tilla

Will you ever understand how I felt?
I think you did.
You saw the vision in life in me,
you did not ever think that you could made it I think.

You are so much clever than me,
I thought you will find the gold buckets in life.
Why did you never take gable in life, you were so full of life.

Making The Cut Season 3 (2022)

Drawing of Model Figures

I was looking at the tutorial I got 27th of September 2022, and I find a lot of new ideas on how to draw figure drawings. It is interesting to see that you need to practice drawing. I do not enjoy drawing. When I was in school I played the piano, and when you play a music instrument you need to practice every day. You can’t miss one day. Practicing the piano was hard work and also a lot of work, that is the same with drawing. You need to draw every day. You need to practice every day. I don’t have the time slot worked out for me to spend at least an hour drawing, but need to consider it.

Take my Breath – For Anton

Will it still be possible to find you in heaven where I might go when I go flying up when I pass the sky, further of all the stars I can’t and never will see from the earth here?
Will I have wings to carry me without your love? Will I still have fresh air in my lungs to breathe when you exhalation into you when we kiss and make love?

How hard to find each other in times when we fight,
Then it is hard to find each other in times when we make love and kiss of all the pain we have from life.
When we all over each other we try to hide the scars on our bodies where we were hurt.

When we walk it feels like when I am with you all the spotlights shine all over us.
Lights of love and love and love, your love.
Still, you can see the stars shines so brightly brighter than the spotlights and all the stars shine more and more love over us, in times we struggle.
Our hands claw stronger in hard times, but still, we will staying falling in love.

How hard to find each other in times when we fight,
Then it is hard to find each other in times when we make love and kiss of all the pain we have from life.
When we all over each other we try to hide the scars on our bodies where we were hurt

Drawing Model Sketches

I think everyone who studied art might sometimes feel they can’t draw. You get a lot of artist who really is masters in drawing. This is a very nice video clip which I find on the net which I like to watch again.

5 minutes sketches (Fashion sketching)

Victoria’s Secret 2018

Before I start I want to come back to this morning’s article for my blog which I wrote. That is the swimming wear which I saw for men.

What I am saying with these three designs is that if you count all three pieces of clothing you address 8 different pieces of clothing. With the swimming pants, you can also use them for under wear.
If you look at the jacket you will be able to make a shirt and a jacket.
With the long pants, you will be able to make shorts and long pants.

My idea this morning was to go bling and do beading work on the clothing, but when I looked at this and combine it with the designs of the fashion show Victoria’s Secret 2018 show I think if a couple wears it you will find it will work.

This is the video clip of the swimming wear of the Victoria’s Secret 2018 show.

The designer was British designer Mary Katrantzou.

Beading

Yester Anton and I went and shop a bit. We came to the fabric store and I saw this beading work. I was always looking for something to do at times when I sat in front of the tv and want to do nothing. I don’t like tv, I will sit in front of the computer and surf or work with the tv on.

This is what I found in the shop. I remember when I did textiles I enjoy weaving. It is sorry there is not a lot of money in South Africa for weaving, otherwise, I would enjoy doing that.

What about Fashion?

I was searching the net tonight during load shedding. I was on my phone and find Nataniel a South African singer. He is Afrikaans speaking but does a lot of productions in English. He is also well known for his theater products.



Nataniël- Fashion (OFFICIAL VIDEO) 2005

For more than three decades Nataniel launched his solo career as an artist.  he has released 19 albums, staged more than 80 original theatre productions and published 21 books. If you look at him you get the feeling if it is a copy of Boy George a singer from the UK.

This successful man, makes life for everyone interesting. He likes the new things in life. I remember I was in my first year on teaching college in Groenkloof in Pretoria, and I saw him at the post office. Years there after I thought, those day’s there were no internet or email, he maybe post a letter to his grandma. Years there after I saw him in the parking of Brooklyn mall got out of his Mercedes.

He is a singer, songwriter, producer, director, designer and public speaker,.

Why Nataniel on my mind tonight? It is six minutes past 2 on a Wednesday morning. I see my self now as a fashion designer and what a fashion designer do is he looks at the best artist, what they wear.

There are a lot of interesting things going to happen in the next three to five years, so there is a lot of work to do, please stay in touch.

The Queen has long been known for re-wearing pieces from her wardrobe. (Today Her Funeral)

I am not a royalist nor a big fan of the royals of England but I must say when it comes to fashion, and design, you need to keep an eye on the noble of England. In many cases, you can look at all the kings and queens and princesses and princes of the world.

I must say the person I always was wondering about was Her Majesty, the late Queen Elizabeth of England. Sometimes I wonder what made her so different and why is she so conservative, and also well known for re-wearing her old clothes.

I believe that she was an example for all of us, she was not the show like Princess Diana or Fergie. I am not going to write about the royals but I must say it only once happened that Her Majesty Queen of England died. It is a sad day today because it is the funeral and people all over the world will have a look at what happens now in England.

So let’s go back to what she wears. There were a lot of times that we saw her in the standard one-color piece with a hat and then brooch, and please don’t forget the handbag. The handbag was standard, you will always see her with her handbag and I wonder what she carries in that bag, make-up, maybe a picture of her dogs, I don’t know, I think that stays personal. Sometimes I wish someone can just tell us or discuss what is in that handbag of Queen Elizabeth.

Her jewelry is simple, most of the time she had pearls. That could be her favorite jewelry, it would be nice if she wears more diamonds, but that is personal, I love diamonds and stones, and also wants to wear that myself.

The Queens’ personal dresser Angela Kelly explained how Her Majesty carefully consider the reuse of her old dresses. The life span of her dresses was about 25 years. The royal likes that her clothes to be adapted and recycled as much as possible. The media got familiar of the dress after two or three outings. Later on she will look how to modify it or worn it on private holidays at Balmoral or Sandringham.

Below is photos of Her Majesty’s clothing which she worn again.
