Back to school Hipster Cindy Mangomini

For a while I thought I was going to escape the flu while  everyone around me was getting sick. But there really was no way of escaping it and yesterday it finally hit me too. I will spare you a what I wore illustration filled with boyfriend jeans, slouchy sweaters and millions of tissues. Instead here’s another one of the back to school series I did for Sparknotes, while I go back to bed. Back with new work soon!
