Freezing January

2017-freezing-january-cindy-mangomini

These last weeks have been so cold that I was slowly turning into a sheep! My vintage shearling jacket, boots and mittens were the only clothes warm enough to keep me from freezing. Not a lot of room for fashion when temperatures drop below zero (at least not for me). Luckily I was so busy with illustration jobs that I could spend a lot of time inside with my thermos filled with tea right beside me.

Wearing: shearling jacket, wool cardigan and mittens, Vintage – jeans and tights, H&M – hat, Newyorker – boots, so old I don’t remember – thermos, Mizu.

Reading: The signature of All Things – Elizabeth Gilbert

 

 

Dutch Summer

The Dutch summer so far: rain, rain and more rain. Excellent summer weather to stay inside, read, drink tea and have an occasional sunny cocktail.

Valley of the Dolls

Valley cover Neely - Cindy Mangomini

Today 50 years ago, Valley of the Dolls first came out. It became a best-seller and a classic almost instantly. To celebrate this 50th anniversary I was one of the artists asked by Sparknotes to design new cover art for the book.

I designed 1 cover for each of the main characters: Neely, Jennifer and Anne. To see all the designs just click here.

How To Be Parisian (part deux)

How to be Parisian - Cindy Mangomini

This is my second illustration inspired by How To Be Parisian (wherever you are). After finishing the book I felt like drawing another recap. I’ve also been practicing my French for about a month now (Oui oui, très bien!) See you next time!

PS. I have signed prints available of this illustration and many more in my Etsy shop.
