Ours is no ordinary tote. It was hand screened by Ethan MacDonald. Those of you who are familiar with the lovely designs of Cecily Glowik MacDonald, e.g. Solstice, might be interested to know that her husband, Ethan, is a man of many talents. He can construct a life-size castle with turrets and portico out of cardboard boxes, a family crest from knitting needles, wedge the pointy ends of plastic sword fish swizzlers into our ceiling with a flick of the wrist, and, not least, he can hand screen a Q on anything and everything. Last summer he made us T-shirts on the warehouse ping pong table. And recently, he printed a limited edition of Q tote bags. Want to see the process?
First you get ready–all materials in place.
Next you open the gooey stuff.
You apply it. (That’s Ethan’s work area in the background. He’s also an expert shipper. Is that my iron I see back there under the desk?)
Spread the goo.
Very carefully lift the screen.
And evaluate the results.
Show a little scepticism.
But only a little.
Yes, that’s a T-shirt he’s just finished. But the tote making was equally entertaining.
Thanks, Ethan–awesome totes.
