the power of drawing

this isn't the best photo (but it was taken with my completely rad iphone). my point was to give you a picture (already !) of my totally cool wallet that i drew. turnaround was quick... and it'll be in stores sp'09. plus, you get to see my bunny with tentacles !

tara's bag

so this was a freelance job to make a bag for this girl's custom portfolio that she binded herself. the portfolio is really cool, and very... distinct. it's covered in the fabric that i used on the bottom of the bag, and you can't see it, but the bag is lined in this very bright green fabric. which all matches back to her business cards. hope she likes the bag. she's been so patient !

what's in your wallet ?

i've never really noticed men's wallets before. or what they put in them. every once in a while, i go hunting for my husband's, but it's usually because i need to buy something boring online, and it needs to go on his card.

having had the chance recently to question my male coworkers about their billfolds... i've determined it's as varied as women and their handbags. i'm almost wondering that men aren't MORE picky than women, and concerned about odd non-functioning minutiae.

here's a wallet technical sketch i just did. i'm going to take it home and try out a snazzier drawing style. right after i finish that portfolio bag i'm working on. stay tuned for pics of that.
