Common Totes

Common Totes is an online community where you can submit your designs for printing on a tote bag. Every month two designs are selected by public vote to be put into production. I like the concept for a few reasons:

1) There's prize money, obviously.
2) It's a platform for showcasing the design work of individuals like me.
3) It helps to promote the use of totes in place of plastic or paper bags. This is very important to me. I have a few cloth bags on hand for shopping purposes and I ensure that I carry one with me everytime I'm out.

I've submitted some designs which are adaptations of my fashion illustrations and I'd probably do a few more. It'd be great to receive some votes.
