Dutch Summer

2016 Dutch Summer - Cindy Mangomini

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.

 

 

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!)

May, so far.

Wearing: t-shirt, Alternative Apparel – bracelet, A la – small purse, Solmode – cap & jeans, H&M – sandals, Birkenstock – straw bag, vintage.

Book: The Daily Artist by Marc Johns.

Spring favorites, so far.

Dreaming of Summer

2016 Dreaming of summer - Cindy Mangomini

I’m longing for summer and this is what I want to be wearing to a lovely picnic in the park. But, no such luck with the Dutch spring. It’s more wool sweaters, extra socks and staying inside to escape the rain, wind and even snow! Luckily, I can always draw a sunny scene!

Sneak peek!

2016 April - Cindy Mangomini

One of the things I’m working on at the moment is a birthday calender. Here’s a little sneak peek at what will be the illustration for April.

March, so far: cold & wet.
