Meipuru Tote Bags Now Available on eBay!

Well this is super exciting! My tote bag is finally up for sale on eBay!
Click here to go to eBay for the Meipuru Tote Bag listing!

From 2006 to 2008, I published comic strips in a local Japanese Fraser Monthly magazine about the cultural difference between Japan and Canada. I took the two main characters from the comic and decided to make some tote bags back in 2006. Only 250 of these bags were made. Brown outline of the illustration is screen printed on this thick and durable canvas tote bag. It’s perfect for any occasion, whether you’re using it for grocery shopping or for books. (note: it does not have any gussets) $10 US.

For more info on Meipuru.

I’ll post some of the old comics up in the future 🙂 and next month, will start selling two books that I illustrated and worked on the layout for. Stay tuned! 😀
