Hello Summer!

Hello Summer Mangomini low

Today is the first official day of summer! (at least in the Northern Hemisphere). You never know with the Dutch summer, but we have been lucky this year with already a few weeks of perfect summer weather! 🙂

 

Finally Summer!

2016 finally summer -Cindy Mangomini

We’ve finally had a few lovely sunny days here! It was almost too hot to draw but I still managed to finished another calender page.

Hey June!

2016 June - Cindy Mangomini

This is actually not exactly what I’ve been wearing most at the moment. We’ve had nothing but rain for the last weeks. But yesterday was sunny and today is looking good so far, so I thought this would be a good time to share my “June’ illustration for my upcoming birthday calender (which has been a  little bit delayed because of work on other projects, but it’s coming soon!)

Winter Break

2016 Fuerteventura - Cindy Mangomini

Here’s a second (and final) illustration about my sunny winter getaway to Fuerteventura, before I go back to winter. I had such a good time there: the weather! the people! the yoga! the food! the cocktails!! I wish I could go back there right now, because it’s just too cold here!

 

Draw me like one of your French girls

How to be Parisien part3 - Cindy Mangomini

I’m back from a sun-filled winter break on Fuerteventura, where I met many lovely people.  Among them where Margot & Youna, two real Parisian girls. They were só stylish and cool that I just had to draw them! I know this is already my 3rd Parisian-themed illustration, but hey: pourquoi pas?

 

Camping, not Glamping!

Camping Schiermonnikoog - Cindy Mangomini

I just returned from a short but lovely camping trip to the beautiful Dutch island Schiermonnikoog. Since we had to carry our own luggage the whole journey it was definitely more of a camping than glamping experience, and this is basically what I wore the whole trip.

Wearing: fanny pack,  The Sting – mixed bracelets, Ala and Anna+Nina – sunglasses, Sacha – bikinitop, H&M – flip flops, bought on holiday in Greece – shorts, vintage Levi’s – bikini bottom, Newyorker – Make up bag, Kruidvat – sleeping bag, Hema – top, Mango.
