Scandinavian Style

Scandinavian style - Cindy Mangomini

I made this illustration for the launch of Oh! You Pretty Things Magazine. I was asked by the magazine’s editor in chief  (and über-stylish fashion photographer) Youna Baupoux to illustrate my idea of typical Scandinavian style. Just click here to read the oh-so pretty magazine!

Finally Summer!

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!

Preparing for Valentine’s Day

2016 Valentines Day prep - Cindy Mangomini

This is my plan for Valentine’s Day 2016. Not much change from last year 😉 Anyway, happy Valentine’s day everyone!

Winter Break

2016 Fuerteventura - Cindy Mangomini

Here’s a second (and final) illustration about my sunny winter getaway to Fuerteventura, before I go back to winter. I had such a good time there: the weather! the people! the yoga! the food! the cocktails!! I wish I could go back there right now, because it’s just too cold here!
