Moose with Banana

While working on the “shopping bag make over” in my studio.  Sometimes, I caught myself smiling with the little in-jokes with the images with the bags.

This one  is one of them.  Banana Republic is another American clothing chain stores been  took over our Canadian retail landscape.  I thought if I use our iconic moose image and would add more Canadian identity to the brand.  I like the tongue and cheek name of Banana Republic and what better than a banana tree.  So I made this cut out of the Moose about to dine on the tree ripen banana!

The bag is my #37 and it is 12”X16″

Hollister Bag Make Over

An Arctic air mass continues to cast a deep freeze over our great white north. This morning in Toronto with the wind chill is -28 and the City has issues another extreme cold alert. I haven’t been over the shopping mall to look for more shopping bags the last couple of days however I have plenty collected already.
