Those original drawings were annotated, pointing out the features of the wallets. I enjoyed doing them and actually kept it up through that first year. At the end of the year we had 12 designs, and we made the paintings into a calender, which we gave to our material suppliers as a thank you.
But the next year business sped up, and I couldn't find the time to do all those paintings, so I gave up and started photographing the new designs. Now here we are four years later and approximately 1200 wallets and things later, and I think it's time to bring back the paintings. Above are paintings of
one of our new wallets. As many of our products are, this one was suggested by a friend. She had seen a very similar wallet but made out of leather; she preferred the light weight of our material and the fact that our material is recycled. So we tweaked the design a bit and made it out of her favorite coffee bag (coffee bags with their aluminum lining having proven to be a great material for our wallets). The wallet, which we call the Vic, costs $23 and will be posted on our blog and ready for purchase very soon. It has a card case on the front that you can access very quickly even with the wallet closed. Inside there is a coin or extra card pocket that flaps up to disclose a billfold. The whole thing folds into a compact 3 x 4.25 inches. You can specify any color or theme that you like for the material; as always, you can specify that it be made a different size and with a button instead of Velcro.

By the way, these are drawings # 3766-3769, but I think I should be able to count them double since they took me a whole morning to do!
