This week, I had the honor of taking a backdrop painting done by George Keaton and transforming it into product for art4bnk! George actually made this piece for CHC a couple years ago as part of my display at tradeshows in Chicago & New York. So it was a pleasure to be able to find fresh life for this piece in a way that would be supporting the original creator of it. Here are a few shots of the pieces. You can view them all, as well as the amazing story of ART4BNK by clicking here.
This is a shot of when I used the backdrop at my first show at the Merchandise Mart.
This is with all the initial pieces cut and almost completely assembled...
This is all the medium totes hanging, awaiting their individual product shots. Each tote has two natural leather handles attached with nickel over brass rivets and the clutches close with an aluminum YKK zipper.
This is a shot of one of the medium totes and one of the clutches. Out of the one backdrop, I was able to make 1 XL tote, 6 medium totes & 5 foldover clutches.
Overall, I could not have been happier with the results! I wanted to keep the designs of the bags simple in order to compliment the exquisite detail and statement that George Keaton put in to the paintings. Each piece is just stunning.

So for Lucy's Fall/Winter project, we decided to expand on this idea. Continually inspired by light & movement, she endeavored to use leather to craft shapes & designs that express this particular inspiration. In doing so, she created three distinct abstract designs and then worked them within three distinct accessories; hanging wall art, a tote and a clutch.
