The Art of The Tote Bag

Here is a recent project that I have been itching to post. My client asked me to wait until they gave out the bags to staff before I began posting it.
I created the art for a tote bag for Texas Christian University. The good folks at TCU wanted to give out a tote bag to staff and wanted to have some cool art on it. They wanted to depict life on the TCU campus so what you see are some landmarks from the TCU campus. The lizard is actually a Horned Frog and is the TCU mascot. Purple is the school color.
I worked closely with my client to determine what icons should be in the art. Many sketches were created.
The art is on both sides of the bag. It was a fun project and I hope to do more of this kind of product illustration in the future.
