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.

Back to school Hipster Cindy Mangomini

For a while I thought I was going to escape the flu while  everyone around me was getting sick. But there really was no way of escaping it and yesterday it finally hit me too. I will spare you a what I wore illustration filled with boyfriend jeans, slouchy sweaters and millions of tissues. Instead here’s another one of the back to school series I did for Sparknotes, while I go back to bed. Back with new work soon!

It’s getting hot in here!

During the recent heatwave I had only 1 thing on my mind: how to stay (somewhat) cool! The workspace in my apartment got so hot that my bikini became my new work-uniform (one of the advantages of working from home!)

Wearing: everything is this illustration is H&M, except for: “lucky” bracelet, Anna+Nina – vintage denim skirt – canvas tote from local bookstore – sunglasses, Sacha.
