Love/Hate Relationship.

Tuesday Two 7 Geranium Mosquito Mangomini

The Mosquito Struggle Is Real!

Tuesday Two. I’ve been sharing these on Instragram, but not here, I realised. This week it’s one thing I love and one thing I hate. ⁠
Loving: I’m in love with this pretty geranium that one of my friends gave me. It has such pretty colors ♥ ⁠
Hating: I’m being eaten alive by mosquitos at the moment. They love me. I hate them. They are winning.⁠

Random Things That I’m Loving This June.

Sometimes it’s the small things that make everyday life a little happier.

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 life😎

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy month!💚

Enjoy Rainy Days

2021 Things To Do On A Rainy Day Mangomini

Things To Do On A Rainy Day

Rainy days are not so bad! They are a perfect excuse for taking some time to care for your introvert self. This illustration gives you a few ideas on how to make the most of rainy days.

We’ve been having a lot of rain. I like use the extra time spend inside to give my houseplants extra attention. I also take more time to read, stream a show or movie while giving myself an at home pedicure. Rainy days are also perfect for creative projects, home baking or trying out new recipes. You can also use them to write postcards to your friends (my Etsy shop happens to be filled with cute hand drawn greeting cards!), discover new music or finally do some of the tasks on your to-do list (selling old clothes online is on my list).

What do you like to do on bad weather days? I hope this drawing inspired you to make the most of them!

Eat What You Want Day

2021 National Eat What You Want Day Mangomini

Happy National Eat What You Want Day!

Today, May 11th, is Eat What You Want Day, and for me that looks something like this. These are some of my favorite foods that I could eat every day, and probably would if it wasn’t so unhealthy to do so. As you can see a lot of cheese and chocolate plus of course French Fries with mayonnaise, I am Dutch and that’s the way we do it!

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.  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 😉 I also love that the t-shirt and tote bag are made from organic cotton and the packaging was completely plastic-free.  

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 I’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.😉

While working I like to listen to music (Ben Howard mostly) or podcasts. Podcasts I’m enjoying at the moment include: Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend, Don’t ask Tig and SmartLess. Podcast recommendations are always welcome!💚

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