I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping). I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also like the option of having my art printed. It definitely takes less time. Last summer I ordered a tote bag featuring my own illustrations that I was quite happy with. It was such a fun bag to wear! Today I'm bringing you a selection of tote bags from my Redbubble shop. If you like fashion illustration, there is a good chance you will like this selection of tote bags. Scroll down and have a look!

REDBUBBLE TOTE BAG REVIEW
I remembered that I promised you a review of this bag. I have never collaborated with Redbubble (not all shop owners collaborate with the site). Basically, when you buy merchandise as a shop owner you pay full price of the product, there are no discounts. So, I bought this bag myself. Hence, my review should be unbiased. I was content with both the print and the quality of the bag itself. At first I thought that fifteen dollars might be a bit pricey for a tote bag, but since the print is so well made, I think it's actually a decent price. Plus, these Redbubble tote bags are made partly from recycled material so that's another plus. All in all, I was really happy with the bag and I might order another tote bag like this one. The print (based on my pencil fashion illustration) came up really well. I was a bit worried that the dimensions or something would be a bit off, but that didn't happen. I really loved wearing this tote bag. I wore it quite a few times but then my aunt liked it so much I gifted it to her. I don't have it anymore, but I might order the same one!
