Couples “Portrait”

This is a custom couples “portrait” commission that I made for Annabel and Coen, to celebrate their wedding anniversary. I was very happy to do it, because, as you can see, they have a very cute & cozy style!⠀

More is more!

Here is another friend “portrait”. This time it’s my good friend Nadine, who is a real “more is more’ type of girl: very colorful, with big hair, a big heart and big personality! So of course, I had to draw her style.🌼



Happy King’s Day!

Nederland Mangomini low

Happy King’s day! Today we Dutchies celebrate our King’s birthday. That means: celebrating all day, preferably outside, and everything (including ourselves) in orange!
This is my “Nederland” postcard, with typical Dutch things on it. We may be a small country but there’s still a lot to love here and it’s usually very ‘gezellig’, especially on a day like today!

For my non-Dutch followers, some of the typical Dutch foods on here are (from top to bottom): hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles to eat on your bread, usually for breakfast), stroopwafel (waffle filled with caramel syrup), patatje met (French fries with mayonnaise), tompoes (a very sweet pastry) and drop (salty liquorice).

Card available in my Etsy shop, here.

Pajamas to work!

2019 pajamas to work Mangomini

Today is National Pajamas To Work Day, which for me is really just a regular work day.  Because I work mostly from home, wearing pajames to work is never a problem 😉 In this illustration you can see some of the things that can usually be found in my work space. While working I like to listen to music or podcasts, although sometimes I like silence too. My favorite podcasts at the moment are Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend, By The Book and Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness.

Festival fever!

2019 festival season Mangomini

Are you ready for festival season? For the last 5 years or so I’ve been making these festival style illustrations. It’s fun to see how much my own style has changed over the years. For me, music festivals will always be all about the music, but there’s no harm in having a little fun with your outfit as well, is there? 😉
What festivals are you going to this summer? And who do you want to see perform most?⁣

Hello Spring!

2019 spring plan Mangomini

Happy first day of spring! (On the Northern Hemisphere that is.) I love the start of a new season, because I’m someone who loves to make lists and plans and what better time to do that then at the start of a new season?⁣
This is an updated version of a get-ready-for-spring “action plan” that I made a few years ago. What are your plans for spring?⁣
