Mess in my head #3

I haven't posted much lately on any of the social media platforms. Well, I needed some time. I still need. Lots of thinking here :) But actually I started a new job, so I work a lot, I also skipped a couple of weeks, because I went home and for a holiday, and mainly I didn't feel like drawing. At all. So I didn't, and when I tried, it didn't work. First it felt bad, but after it was ok, I accepted I need time. I have some projects in mind, but I won't force anything now, and I try to spend more time with enjoyable things - like the discovering best pretzel in the world to me, or packing a shoebox for a little girl :) (if you don't know what it is, click here, and I'll show you mine later)

Nem sokat posztoltam mostanaban egyik kozossegi oldalra sem. Idore volt szuksegem. Meeg mindig van. Sokat kell gondolkoznom :) De igazabol uj munkat is kezdtem, ki is hagytam nehany hetet, mert hazamentem es nyaraltam is kicsit, de leginkabb nem ereztem ugy, hogy rajzolnom kene, egyaltalan. Ugyhogy nem is rajzoltam, amikor meg is probaltam, nem ment. Eloszor rosszul ereztem magam miatta, aztan elfogadtam, hogy idore van szuksegem. Van nehany otletem, de nem akarok eroltetni semmit, es probalok tobb idot tolteni elvezetes dolgokkal - mint peldaul a szamomra a vilagon a legjobb perec felfedezese, vagy osszerakni egy ciposdobost egy kislanynak :) (ha nem tudjatok, mi is ez, kattintsatok ide, en pedig megmutatom az enyemet kesobb)

Also I discovered a band called Tigers in the Sky, so I did a little sketching on my way to work, and I finished it at home today with some paint. I like taking words as they are, no other meaning :) 

Felfedeztem egy bandat is, Tigers in the Sky a nevuk, ugyhogy azert skicceltem kicsit munkaba menet, ma pedig itthon befejeztem egy kis festessel. A szavakat pedig szeretem komolyan venni ugy, ahogy vannak, semmi mogottes tartalom :)



And about a week ago I went to The Wallace Collection, because I wanted to see The Swing by Fragonard. It felt so good to be around wonderful art pieces again :) And The Swing is a lot smaller than I expected, but it is outstanding......

Egy hete aztan elmentem a Wallace Collectionbe, mert nagyon szerettem volna latni Fragonard Hinta-jat eloben. Szuperul ereztem magam ujra mualkotasok kozott :) Es a kep ugyan joval kisebb, mint ahogy kepzeltem, de csodalatos......



So here I am, writing this blogpost (whilst listening to Forrest Gump :) ), just to keep you who is interested informed, what is going on with me :) And a photo of me touching those amazing-amazing mosaics at Park Güell!!!!!!! A dream came true really, I've been looking forward to do this for more than 10 years.

Szoval most itt vagyok, irom ezt a blogposztot (mialatt Forrest Gumpot hallgatok :) ), csak informalni akartam azokat, akik erdeklodnek, mi ujsag felem :) Es egy foto rolam, mikozben megtapogatom azokat az elkepeszto mozaikokat a Güell Parkban!!!!! Egy alom valt valora, tobb mint 10 eve vartam erre.

Mess in my head #2

Ok, so after my first Mess in my head post, let's say I can see some links between my works (on better days.. :) ). But I still have many-many questions. So I had this idea to create the same pattern with different techniques, to realise something, but to be honest at the end I got so confused, that I even forgot the purpose of this project... It is a shame and quite a funny thing at the same time. I'll show you now my project so far, and we'll see where this leads..

Ok, szoval az elso Mess in my head (='kaosz a fejemben') poszt utan, mondjuk, hogy talaltam valamifele kapcsolatot a munkaim kozott (jobb napokon legalabbis.. :) ). De meg mindig sok-sok kerdesem van. Ugyhogy volt ez az otletem, hogy ugyanazt a mintat megfestem/-rajzolom tobb kulonbozo technikaval, valamit felfedezni, de oszinten szolva, a vegere ugy osszezavarodtam, hogy elfelejtettem, mi is volt a szandekom... Szegyen es vicces is egyszerre. Megmutatom a projectet eddig, aztan meglatjuk hova vezet..

Christmas 2017/18

My next year's Christmas designs are inspired by vintage christmas ornaments and floral embroideries. In the beginning I thought maybe I shouldn't use that much flowers, but I also thought that is me, who is using lots of flowers, why not on the Christmas designs - if it is vintage, and the colour palette I created allows me to, let's give it a shot! And at the end I really like them. 
Of course I can see the things which could've been better, but this was a really big project for me, so I am still at the learning phase. But that is what I enjoy the most, to work on big-big projects, where I have time to really go into my ideas. 
Also apparently flowery christmas will be quite trendy - who thought that..? 

So here it is, let me know what you think, any opinion is appreciated!

A jovo evi karacsonyi design-jaimat vintage karacsonyi dekoraciok es viragos himzesek inspiraltak. Kezdetben ugy gondoltam, talan nem kellene olyan sok viragot hasznalnom, de azt is gondoltam, ez vagyok en, sok viraggal, miert ne a karacsonyi terveken - amig vintage-i, es a szinpaletta, amit valasztottam, engedi, probaljuk meg! Es vegul egeszen elegedett vagyok.
Persze latom a dolgokat, amik jobbak is lehettek volna, de ez egy igazan nagy project volt nekem, igy meg mindig tanulo fazisban vagyok. De ez az, amit leginkabb elvezek, nagy-nagy projecteken dolgozni, ahol igazan van lehetosegem elmelyedni az otleteimben.
Raadasul ugy tunik, a viragos karacsony trendi lesz - ki gondolta volna..?

Ugyhogy itt vannak, kommenteljetek batran, minden velemenyre kivancsi vagyok!

June and July favourites

A couple of months ago I decided to join other artists (-and actually as checked instagram- to some make-up lovers haha.. :) I mean I don't have problems with people who do make-up but I never use anything, except nailvarnish twice a year and eye something /I cannot even remember of its name../ once in 5 years.. in fact maybe I should, probably I would be pretty sometimes, not just comfy :) ) ... anyway, where have I started..? oh yes, so I decided to join others in illustrating our monthly favourites.

Nehany honapja elhataroztam, hogy csatlakozom mas muveszekhez (-es mint kiderult, ahogy megneztem az instagramot- nehany sminkes-imadohoz hihi.. :) ugy ertem, nincs problemam azokkal, akik sminkelnek, csak en sosem hasznalok semmit, kiveve hogy ketszer kifestem a kormom evente, es 5 evente egyszer kihuzom a szemem.. pedig lehet, hogy kene, es akkor nem csak kenyelmes lennek mindig, hanem csini is :) ) de hol is tartottam..? o igen, szoval ugy dontottem, csatlakozom a havi kedvenceink illusztralasahoz.

And the reasons?
* I have a terrible-terrible-terrible memory, unbelievably bad, seriously.. I can remember of dates or information or movies, but I cannot remember of moments, if you know what I mean. 
* Great practice! This way I can come out of my comfort zone, because I have to draw many different things, not just nature-inspired stuff.
* It's good to have ongoing projects where we have time-pressure created by ourselves.

Az ok pedig:
* Nagyon-nagyon-nagyon rossz a memoriam, hihetetlenul rossz, de tenyleg.. Tudok emlekezni datumokra, informaciokra, filmekre, de keptelen vagyok emlekeket felidezni, ha ertitek, hogy ertem.
* Nagyszeru gyakorlas! Igy muszaj kilepnem a komfortzonambol, hiszen kulonbozo dolgokat kell rajzolnom, nem csak termeszet-inspiralta dolgokat.
* Jo ha van az embernek olyan projectje, amiben idonyomas van, amit sajat maga szab, maga miatt muszaj csinalnia.

So in this post I'll show you my favourites from June and July, and I'll give you a bit more details than on instagram or facebook - 'cause if you're here it might mean you love also reading a bit more about things :)

Ugyhogy ebben a posztban megmutatom a kedvenceimet juniusbol es juliusbol, es irok roluk kicsit hosszabban, mint instagramon vagy facebookon - hiszen ha itt vagytok, az azt jelentheti, hogy szerettek olvasni kicsit tobbet dolgokrol :)



So my favourite things in June:

1. my camera. It's not new, but I haven't used it too often lately. So now I will :)
2. date-day with my love. We started having date-days in June, because we hardly ever spent quality time together. (We live together, but somehow we seemed to forgot that we are not just two people living next to each other.)
3. cheese-y bun with my sister. Nice and soft from Marks & Spencer :)
4. wacom tablet. Highlight of the month! The most basic one, but I've wanted this for so long... And it turned out it's a great investment!
5. flowers from him. (Haven't got any for so long :) )
6. holiday. Second highlight of the month :)
+1 making this sketchbook!

Tehat a kedvenceim juniusban:

1. fenykepezo. Nem uj, viszont mostanaban nem nagyon hasznaltam. Hat most fogom :)
2. randinap. Juniusban kezdtuk, az oka pedig, hogy nagyon keves minosegi idot toltunk egyutt. (Noha egyutt elunk, ugy tunik, elfelejtettuk, hogy nem csak ket egymas mellett levo ember vagyunk.)
3. sajtos pogacsa a Hugommal. Fincsi, puha a Marks & Spencer-bol :)
4. wacom rajztabla. A honap fenypontja! A legalapabb, de olyan regota szerettem volna... Es mint kiderult, nagyszeru befektetes volt!
5. viragok Tole. (reg nem kaptam :) )
6. nyaralas. A 2-es szamu fenypontja a honapnak :)
+1 ennek a fuzetnek a keszitese!


Favourite things in July (this time I wanted to practice my writing, some handdrawn fonts)

* The Terminal. The movie with Tom Hanks, it's such a great movie, I cannot believe I missed it until now! 
* The National Gallery. One day after work we visited this museum with my sister. I'm not a fan of the paintings of the early centuries, but you always can find there enough things to see, and your time is never enough :)
* Victoria & Albert Museum. My all time favourite museum!
* sesame bagel with vegetarian bacon :)
* piggie drawings (I'll show them later. It's on the list because I thought I'll be able to finish them until my monthly favourite pic, but I didn't)
* Flipped. Another movie this month. This one is so cute and nice, and the dresses are so pretty in it :) It quickly became one of my favourite movies ever!
* picnic with colleagues in Green Park 
* 4 bordeaux dogs. This is what I'd call heaven... I love dogs, and I love fields, and where they meet, it cannot be bad!
* Sunny afternoon musical. I didn't know The Kinks by name, just the songs, but we found this musical, and we had a guest here, so we decided to watch that. And now.. we would love to see it again soooo badly....!

Juliusi kedvencek (ezuttal az irasom akartam gyakorolni, nehany kezzel rajzolt betutipust)

* Terminal. Tom Hankssel. Nagyszeru film, nem is ertem, hogy maradt eddig ki eddig az eletembol!
* Nemzeti Galeria Londonban. Egy nap munka utan ellatogattunk ebbe a muzeumba a Hugommal. Nem vagyok oda a korai szazadok festmenyeiert, de boven akad annyi erdekes latnivalo, hogy az ido sosem eleg :)
* Victoria es Albert Muzeum. A legkedvencebbem.
*szezamos bagel vegetarianus szalonnaval :)
* malacrajzok (kesobb mutatom oket. Szerepel a listan, mert azt hittem, be fogom fejezni, mire a havi kedvenceket csinalom, de nem jott ossze egyelore)
* Valtozo szerelem. Egy masik film ebben a honapban. Olyan cuki, es a ruhak olyan klasszak benne :) Hamar a legkedvencebbeim koze kerult!
* piknik kollegakkal a Green Parkban
* 4 bordeaux-i dog. Mennyorszag... Imadom a kutyakat, imadom a mezoket, ahol pedig ezek talalkoznak, az rossz nem lehet!
* Sunny afternoon musical. Nem ismertem a The Kinks nevu egyuttest nevrol, csak a szamaikat, de talaltuk ezt a musicalt, es vendegunk volt, ugyhogy ugy dontottuk, megnezzuk egyutt. Es most.. Uuuujra szeretnenk latniii....!

That's all for now, sorry for the long post, the next one in this series will be just about one month :) 

Ennyi most, elnezest a hosszu posztert, a kovetkezo ebben a sorozatban csak egy honaprol fog szolni :)

Leafy patterns - autumn

There is not much I can say about this collection, and there are no work-in-progress photos either, because I simply forgot taking some.. :) (if you're interested, check out my previous post about a similar painting)

Sokat nem tudok irni errol a kollekciorol, es sajnos nincsenek folyamatkepek sem, mert szimplan elfelejtettem kesziteni parat.. :) (ha erdekel, csekkoljatok az elozo posztom egy hasonlo festesrol)


But some thoughts about the techniques: I started painting the leaves in my huge sketchbook, just because I felt like painting something. These turn out always my best work, I think, when I do something without any purpose in the beginning. 
Later I added some birds, and I created patterns in Photoshop, but I couldn't decide which one looks best, so I decided to like them all :) And after I designed another pattern, kept my watercolour leaves, put them into a repeat, and I added a background colour as well, and liked that too :)

De azert nehany gondolat a technikakrol: a hatalmas vazlatfuzetemben kezdtem festeni, csak mert szerettem volna festeni. Viszont mindig ezek tunnek a legjobb munkaimnak, azt hiszem, amiken mindenfele szandek nelkul kezdek dolgozni.
Kesobb aztan hozzaadtam nehany madarat, majd terveztem mintakat Photoshopban, de nem tudtam donteni, melyik a legjobb, igy ugy dontottem, mindet szeretem :) Aztan terveztem egy masik patternt, megtartva az akvarell leveleimet. Adtam hozza hatteret, megtartottam azt is :)

Mess in my head #1

What am I doing..? What shall I do..? What am I going to do tomorrow, in a week, in a year..? Questions what we are all worried about, I think. But some of us cannot get rid of them so easily. I am definitely one of these people. And sometimes being positive doesn't help any more. So I ruminate. A lot. Which is really tiring, right? 

So I hope if I write a bit more about my thoughts, my worries, it will help not just me, but you as well, if you have similar problems.

Mit csinalok..? Mit kellene tennem..? Mit fogok csinalni holnap, egy het mulva, jovore..? Kerdesek, amik miatt mind aggodunk, ugy hiszem. De nehanyunk nem szabadul toluk olyan konnyen. En biztosan ezek az emberek kozul valo vagyok. Es neha pozitivnak lenni mar nem eleg. Ugyhogy agyalok. Sokat. Ami eleg faraszto, nem igaz?

Ugyhogy ugy gondoltam, ha irok ezekrol a gondolatokrol, aggodalmakrol, az talan masnak is segithet, nem csak nekem.

My main speculation is about if I could be better at what I am trying doing (let's be positive, right? I am doing it, not just trying!), hopefully I could see what I should do, what I will do, and I wouldn't be so worried and so tired of thinking all the time. 
So the question is: what should I do to get closer to this. And this is where I am stuck. I do work a lot, in a very organised way, which means I know I have exactly 12 hours for work today, but I am not sure if I am doing the right things.

So I thought I start this series to get rid of these thoughts from my head at least. I don't know how regular these posts will be, it depends on my mood really. (Also if you think you do not want to read about them, let me know, and I'll figure out something else :) )

A toprengesem fo targya pedig - ha jobb lennek abban, amit probalok csinalok (csak pozitivan, nem igaz? nem csak porbalom, csinalom is!), remelhetoleg tisztabban latnam, merre tartok, es nem aggodnek es nem lennek folyton faradt a sok agyalastol.
Szoval a kerdes az, mit kene tennem, hogy kozelebb keruljek ehhez. Es ez az, ahol megrekedek. Sokat dolgozom, jo ideje mar nagyon szervezetten, ami azt jelenti, ma pontosan tudom, hogy 12 oram van munkara, de nem vagyok biztos benne, hogy a megfelelo dolgokat csinalom.

Ugyhogy elkezdem ezt a sorozatot, megszabadulni legalabb ezektol a gondolatoktol. Nem tudom, milyen rendszeresek lesznek ezek a posztok, a hangulatomtol fog fuggeni igazabol. (Es persze, ha ugy erzitek, nem akartok ilyesmirol olvasni, irjatok meg, en pedig kitalalok valami mast :) )




As the first step to see myself and my work clearer I created a board with my patterns. I am still unsure about many things, but the purpose of this is to find a link between my works. To find my style, to find the area I would fit in. I have improved a lot in the last year, I definitely can see that, but I still feel, I do not have a style. The only thing I can see is I use so many colours. I believe I should reduce them to reach a more consistent style. 
Ok, I think this will be the theme of the next post about this chaos in my head.

Eso lepeskent, hogy tisztabban lassam magam es a munkaim, osszeszedtem a mintaim egy lapra. Tovabbra is bizonytalan vagyok sok mindenben, de a celja az ennek, hogy megtalaljam az osszefuggest a munkaim kozott. Hogy megtalaljam a stilusom, a teruletet, amibe illek. Hatarozottan sokat fejlodtem az elmult evben, azt latom, de meg mindig nem latom a sajat stilusom. Az egyetlen dolog, amit latok, hogy tul sok szint hasznalok. Azt hiszem, le kene redukalni oket, hogy elerhessek egy kovetkezetesebb stilust.
Igen, azt hiszem, ez lesz a temaja a kovetkezo posztnak a kaoszrol a fejemben.

We'll see if this leads anywhere, and if it does, where. Or maybe nowhere, and I should find something else, because I will never be good enough in this, there are so many great artists in the world. But this is another step.. Until then if you are interested, read this article, it's a really interesting one about Generation Y. (well, I wasn't sure earlier, but I must belong there because I'm exactly in the middle of the age range..) So check this out, there is even a super, motivating video in the post, with lots of cool music and movies :)

Meglatjuk, vezet-e ez valahova, es ha igen, hova. Vagy talan sehova, es talalnom kellene valami mast, mert soha nem leszek eleg jo ehhez, hiszen olyan sok nagyszeru muvesz van a vilagon. De ez egy masik lepcso.. Addig is, ha erdekel, olvassatok el ezt a cikket,  nagyon erdekes az Y Generaciorol. (nem egeszen voltam korabban benne biztos, de megiscsak ide tartozom en is, hiszen epp a kozepen vagyok ennek a korosztalynak..) Szoval csekkoljatok, egy szuper, motivalo videot is talaltok ott, sok szuper zenevel es filmbevagassal :)

My Lucy S. handmade book-collection

There is this girl, who makes beautiful books. I know there are many people who can bind fantastic books, but my personality matches quite well to hers, so if I would make books, their style probably would be similar, so of course I love her books the most.
And the most amazing thing: they are all handmade - from cutting the big sheets of papers, through the sewing, glueing, to the cover.. But let me show you some pictures! (after the hungarian paragraph, sorry :) )

Van ez a lany, aki csodaszep konyveket keszit. Tudom, sokan vannak, akik fantasztikus konyveket tudnak kotni, de a szemelyisegem eleg hasonlo az ovehez, szoval ha en kotnek konyveket, valoszinuleg hasonlo stilusuak lennenek, mint az ovei, szoval persze, hogy az o konyveit szeretem a legjobban.
Es a legelkepesztobb dolog, hogy az egesz kezzel keszitett - a hatalmas iv papirok felvagasatol, a varrason, ragasztason at, a boritoig minden.. De hadd mutassak nehany kepet!


the blue geometric one was the first one.
I used it as an album about our holiday,
you can find a quick video here :)
a kek, geometrikus mintas volt az elso.
egy albumnak hasznaltam a nyaralasunkrol,
gyors video itt :)


one of them is a concertina!
egy kozuluk ilyen kihajthatos,
nem tudom, hogy hivjak magyarul
this one is obviuosly my favourite -
it's yellow! and  turquoise! :)
ez persze a kedvencem - sarga! es turkiz! :)


We (my sister and I) even had a bookbindig session with her where we were shown the whole process! Quite long (something like 7-8 hours!!) but so exciting experience!
A work-in-progress photo and some pics of the book I made (the one with the animal design on the top picture, that's my own book, covered with my own design :) ), can be found here and here and here!

Tartott nekunk (a Hugomnak es nekem) egy workshopot is, ahol megmutatta az egesz folyamatot! Hosszu (7-8 ora korul volt!!), de nagyon izgalmas elmeny! Egy fazisfoto es nehany arrol, amit en keszitettem (az allatos mintas a felso keprol, sajat keszitesu fuzet, sajat mintaval :) ), itt es itt es itt lathato!


Unfortunately she doesn't really make them nowadays, the process is too long compared to the price you can ask for an 'empty' book, she says, but I hope she will find more people, who understand why she has to ask more money than a big company for a book like this.

Sajnos manapsag nem igazan kesziti oket, a folyamat tul hosszu az arhoz kepest, amit el lehet kerni egy ilyen 'ures' konyvert, mondja O, de remelem, fog talalni olyan embereket, akik megertik, miert kerulnek tobbe, mint nagy cegek fuzetei, konyvei.
