You might have to look at these pictures a few times before you get it. See that bag? It's not drawn on. It's real.
That is a photo, not an illustration.
Here's one in close up. It's called the First Date Bag. Can you imagine rocking up with that on a first date? Your beau or belle would be texting their friends, saying "I think I'm on a date with a cartoon? SEND HELP" while everyone around surreptitiously Instagrammed the shit out of you.
Look at that. You'd look like Indiana Jones. IF HE WERE A DRAWING.
These bags are from Jump From Paper, a giddy and imaginative designer duo from Taiwan. They make perfectly real, useable canvas bags look like 2D cartoons by playing with perspective, using bright, solid colours and adding thick black lines. I adore them - they're clever, fun and functional, and would make lugging your stuff to work every day a joy.
You can buy them from the Saatchi Gallery online shop for £89.95 each, or directly from Jump From Paper who will post worldwide (but beware: you may be hit by customs duties).
