I've been ridiculously busy lately, juggling three jobs, designing things freelance, marketing/interning for a local (and absolutely beautiful) boutique so have completely struggled to finish any of my illustrative work. However, I recently finished one of my latest additions to The Handbag Project, which features the lovely Tamara from the blog The Glam and Glitter. I love reading her posts, especially since a lot of them are based in Brighton where I'm also based, and because her writing has such a lively tone to it. The list of objects Tamara carries around with her is absolutely huge so I made the decision not to try and fit every single object into my drawing. I'm also a carry your entire life in your handbag kind of girl, which usually results in bruised arms and tired limbs but I can't bring myself to leave my things at home because 99% of the time I'll need them (probably ...). Tamara quite fittingly made a 'What's in My Bag' video recently that documents the sheer amount of things she carries with her, which I think compliments the drawing, and gives you a little more insight to her likes and dislikes. Her Youtube channel is full of interesting insights to her life and she has an amazing accent so I'd happily just listen to her talk.
This illustration in its entirety and other ones that are part of the project can be found on The Handbag Project part of the website. If you'd like to be considered to take part in the project, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
