Greedy Reads Tote
I was hired by Julia to design a tote bag for her Baltimore based bookshop, Greedy Reads.
I can't actually remember how this went down, but I'm pretty sure I had wanted to make this illustration for a while. At some point, Heidi caught wind that Julia wanted a new tote design and insta-blurted, "DUSTIN WILL MAKE IT FOR YOU"
I made the black & white version the old fashioned way; pen & ink on murdered-tree paper. The framed original is hanging up in her shop.
I couldn't resist coloring the drawing so I did and Julia later used that for an ad in Sagamore Pendry's magazine.
Greedy Reads is an independent bookstore in Fells Point, Baltimore. It's a neighborhood favorite. Also, everybody loves Julia. She's so coooool!
