day 11: coral messenger
Coral is one of my favorite natural patterns, but this coral’s in white, just like many of the ocean’s reefs. This is my small statement in favor of protecting our marine habitats in conjunction with artists like Olek, who make work to raise awareness about environmental conservation.
This messenger bag is modeled on a friend’s schoolbag from his Rotary Youth Exchange in Taipei, Taiwan. Simple, sturdy, and easy to access while on a bike, I’ve made several versions, but this one’s the most vibrant in keeping with Tempe’s flaming temperatures and the rise of ocean temperatures as well.
