Summer Plans

The last 2 months have been so busy that I almost forgot to make summer plans! Most days I happily spend behind my drawing desk. I also don’t have much new clothes to draw because I’m still trying to buy less and only what I really, REALLY love, preferably vintage, like some of the “old” favorites on here. If I buy something new, I have to get rid of 2 similar items, which is not always easy, but still makes me feel good about minimizing my stuff. I did get some new art supplies, which always makes me very happy! ☺️

Stay cool!

Trying to stay cool and productive during this heatwave is a real challenge! These are some of my “heatproof” favorites at the moment.

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.🌼



Enjoying spring!

I finally had a bit of free time to enjoy the sunny spring weather this week, with long hikes, picnics in the park and a lot of white wine 😉 I hope you are also having a good week!⁣

Cool Custom Order

Margot2 Mangomini

This is a custom illustration that I made for my yoga/surf buddy Margot, who has an amazing style that I would describe as “bohemian vintage badass board babe”. She also has a second hand e-shop called Second Wave Shop if you like this style you should definitely check it out.⁣

This is actually the second drawing that I made of Margot’s style. When I first met her on Holiday I was so impressed with her and her friend Youna’s style that I made an illustration of their holiday style. (See below.) Feel free to contact me if you would also like a custom illustration of your personal style.

Embracing Neutrals

2019 neutrals Mangomini

I’m not much of a trend follower but I am totally embracing the neutral colour trend at the moment (yes, leopard print is a neutral!) Any trend that makes beige seem fresh and not boring is impressive, if you ask me ;)⁣
I’m also still reading ánd working on my own little Happiness Project and my 19 goals for 2019, yay!⁣

January Cold
