Micro Adventures Are Everywhere!

This drawing is part of a new series of outdoor adventure themed cards. Coming soon to my Etsy shop. If you like this you can also follow me on Instagram and Pinterest for regular updates.

Casual June Staycation Outfit.

After a very rainy May, we’re having a super sunny June so far, and I’m loving it! When I’m not working I’m spending all my time outside, near, on, or in the water or hiking and picnicking. I hope you’re enjoying June as well so far!

This drawing is from the June page of my birthday wall calendar. I updated it slightly for this year. I own many on the items on here, including the top, denim short, bikini and Birkenstock sandals.

Hey June! Hello New Month!

2021 June Calendar Mangomini blog

My Sunny Plans For June, In Drawings.

It’s June, and a new month, as always, means a new calendar page. I filled the June page illustration with sunny, spring-in-the-city vibes. A cool but comfy outfit to stroll around the city, have a drink outside or a picnic in the park. The last few days the rain has finally stopped here in the Netherlands, so I can actually act out my illustration in real life๐Ÿ˜Ž

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy month!๐Ÿ’š

2021 What I would wear to a festival now Mangomini

What I Would Wear To A Music Festival Now

I miss being able to go to summer festivals so much! Hopefully very soon again!๐Ÿคž I’ve been drawing my summer festival fashion style every year at the start of the festival season, for the last six years now. And even though I might not actually be able to go this year, I still enjoyed thinking about what I would wear and found that I had trouble deciding, even in drawings.๐Ÿ˜‰ Which one do you like better?

April Favourites, Illustrated.

2021 04 April favorite things Mangomini

Things I Enjoyed Most In April, In Drawings.

Since it’s already the last day of April, it’s a good time for a look at some of my favorite things this month, in illustrated form of course.ย  I did a lot of hiking & picnicking, had a sunny kayak adventure and added lots of new little plants to my growing collection. This whole outfit is from Monki. The pants took such a long time to draw, but I do love them so it had to be done ๐Ÿ˜‰ I also love that the t-shirt and tote bag are made from organic cotton and the packaging was completely plastic-free. ย 

Other things that I still loved this month, but already included in my March favorites, are Ben Howard’s new album and live stream concert and cold water swimming.

Pajamas To Work Day

Happy National Wear Your Pajamas To Work Day!

Today, April 16th, is National Wear Your Pajamas To Work Day, which this year is a “normal” day for many. As an illustrator I’m used to working from home, so I can easily wear pajames to work most days. But after more than a year of lockdown life Iโ€™m so sick of wearing pyjamas & sweatpants every day that I find myself wanting to dress up for work more and more. How about you? Do you feel the same?

This drawing shows you some of the things that can usually be found in my work space plus my pajama-outfit of course.๐Ÿ˜‰

While working I like to listen to music (Ben Howard mostly) or podcasts. Podcasts Iโ€™m enjoying at the moment include: Conan Oโ€™Brien Needs A Friend, Donโ€™t ask Tig and SmartLess. Podcast recommendations are always welcome!๐Ÿ’š

If you want to see the end result of what I make, you can visit my Etsy shop. Itโ€™s filled with cute & colorful hand drawn items and ships worldwide.๐Ÿ’š You can also follow me on Instagram and Pinterest for regular updates.

Little Things That Make Me Happy

Finding Joy In The Little Things In Life, In March.

Time for my March favorites! This is a drawing of all the little things that were making me happy in March. Nothing made me happier last month (or this month!) than new music from Ben Howard! In fact, in less than 2 hours Iโ€™ll be watching his live stream concert so please do not disturb around that time.๐Ÿ˜ฌ
Other things that I loved about March included my regular cold water dips in the river, a lot of picnicking (plus a lot @mr.moonen_wijnhandel wine) and, of course, my plants!โ ๐ŸŒฑ
I hope you also had a good month and are having a happy & healthy April so far! Have a lovely day! โ ๐Ÿ’š
