Hello! I'm Maggie and my mind is usually on the moon, daydreaming. This website is my illustration portfolio and blog. I cease creating characters and drawings as soon as I could hold a crayon. I draw what makes me happy and I hope it brings you a little joy too 😊🌙💕 XO, Maggie in the Moon
Lately I’ve been into drawing patterns and greenhouses. I’d love to design home accesories, t shirts, and dresses with these designs. Although summer is not my favorite season, I love the lush plants that bloom this time of year and I’m inspired by them. 💚
Mermay has been one of my favorite drawing challenges on Instagram so far other than Inktober and Folktale Week.I have always wondered about mermaids and other mystical creatures. Deep down inside I’d love to be a mermaid for a day.
These are some of the drawings I’ve made for Mermay, originally created by artist Tom Bancroft, and I plan to continue until the end of May because it’s too fun not to.
I am trying to figure out how to continue to post on this blog and what topics my readers are interested in, using this website as a portfolio, and continuing to build my Instagram. I was thinking of creating a comic and posting it here. Let me know if that’s something you’d be interested in.
I still continue to adore makeup but can’t keep up with all the new releases nor my old posting schedule as I have three jobs at the moment. I know excuses seem lame and I am trying to consolidate it all. Thank you for contiuing to support my blog and content.
I love you all!

I did this moon girl for @asayris on IG’s #drawthisinyourstylechallenge. Hers is beyond gorgeous as were so many by amazing artists. If you haven’t checked them out, go! I learned so much about shading with this one. These are just so fun to do.
This one is for @kraken_illustration’s challenge. I love how it turned out. Under the sea scenes are so my thing too so I couldn’t resist taking on this challenge.
As a kid I had neighbors who were almost like brothers. Their dog was a sweet, big, red haired dog, kind of like Clifford the Big Red Dog. I loved him dearly. He was the inspiration for this drawing, which I did as part of Childhood Week on Instagram. Lately, I’ve been down for any drawing challenge and I’m currently looking for my next one. I’m sad I couldn’t do all of the Childhood Week prompts but this week has been beyond chaotic for me, yet very amazing all in one.
I’ve been drawing so much inspiration from Folktale week on Instagram and here are some highlights:
“Witch” (based on Hansel and Gretel)
“Magic” (based on the Scandinavian folktale “Saving Spring”)
Above is a screenshot of the prompts if you’re not familiar with them. Folktale week wasn’t nearly as popular as Inktober, but just as inspiring and fun. I’m a huge fan of folktales and children’s books and illustrations. Folktale week on Instagram and here are some highlights.
To see all of the drawings I did, including one based on Mexican and Central American folktale La Llorona, go to my Instagram; @maggieinhermoon
Here are some other drawings I did for Inktober. It was quite the challenge but even though I barely got my drawing up on some nights, I throughly enjoyed it. I will keep drawing as it’s helped me stay inspired.
