Lots of new things over here at Blue Bicicletta, like this:
Yes, that’s right—I made a tote bag! I’ve been thinking about it for a while after I’ve heard from multiple people that they like my drawings, but they just don’t buy much art, or don’t have room for it, but that they would love to see a tote bag or a t-shirt. I thought that my “Eat Well & Slowly” drawing would make the perfect farmer’s market or grocery shopping bag, so I found a local printer and got some made.
There is one little glitch in the story—I wanted a medium-sized market bag, and I thought that’s what I picked at the printer. Unfortunately there was some mis-communication because I ended up with 25 jumbo totes. The nicest thing about these larger totes is that you can fit anything in them—really—an entire picnic and blanket, two pool towels, or a yoga mat and a change of clothes, or everything you need for an overnight visit. They’re really usable and durable, and most of all, it’s just fun to see this drawing, that’s really important to my lifestyle, on a portable, everyday usable bag.
The bags are now available in my shop. Here are some close-ups:
