Quite! And I'm happy to announce that it can hold up to a 15" laptop, a tablet, and a sketchbook, several pens and pencils, a wallet and a hairbrush. :D

(Although I try not to carry all that stuff with me most of the time. Gets too heavy!)

Let the record show that I ADORE the tote bag, and I know I'll talk myself into buying it by the end of the week, but I must know: is it any good for holding laptops? Or is it just a nice summery bag good for beach things and/or carrying your sketchbooks and basic drawing supplies everywhere?

This is quite adorable. I like the fine overall texture of the work. The warm pinks and blues make for a very sea-worthy theme. The style on the eyes also seems slightly different than what you usually do for your characters. It is interesting.

totally perfect, i love the older art styles that shojo comics had, it's interesting to see how it's developed. you really captured the retro feel and i particularly love the bow and her eyes :) gorgeous as always. i'm so tempted to snag that last bag...

I can definitely see the shoujo style going on here especially in the eyes. Great work the arms seem to skinny for my liking but that's just me. I enjoy the line work on the hair and such though.

i didn't really look at series so much as artists (rune naito, macoto takahashi, etc.) and just googled around for general shojo merchandise from that time period...there was a kawaii goods seller on flickr that had a ton of great photos but i didn't bookmark it ._. durp

thanks!
