Strand Tote Design
This was a piece I created a while back for a Strand Tote bag competition. If you have ever been to Strand Books in NYC, it seriously feels as if you are in a mountain of books. I have lost many friends in this shop. We go there as a group, quickly disperse, and just spend hours huddled in a corner digesting all the amazing information and imagery. This illustration is inspired by my many experiences at Strand. Hiding in a pile of books, not wanting to leave where I currently am but wishing I had an extension of myself to see where my friends are and where the next book is that I can discover.
