Artist Daniel Cascardo Tote Bag

Are you looking for a unique gift item? Well how about a gift that has an talented artist’s touch? Well I would like to introduce you all to a great artist, Daniel Cascardo. Here is a little more information about Daniel Cascardo from the website:
Daniel Cascardo is a visual artist who was born in Dearborn, Michigan and studied art at Henry Ford Community College in Dearborn and the College for Creative Studies in Detroit. He started his career in advertising then moved to Chicago to pursue a job in animation. After living in Chicago for nine years he moved back to Michigan to raise a family and continue to grow in his many diverse experiences as a visual artist.

The images that Cascardo creates are fanciful, abstract, colorful and often spontaneous. He teaches a program called, “The Art Action Experience” where he creates a large black and white painting in real time, usually to the rhythm of music, then invites people to paint the images in color. It’s a challenge trying to engage people to express themselves in a visual sense. The reward is actually being part of the process and witnessing the transformation occur. The depth of his work continues to grow and is as diverse as the colors of his palette. To create, inspire, and engage is his mission as an artist and to celebrate the freedom of the creative spirit inherent in all people.

I was fortunate to be able to review a nice tote from Daniel Cascardo, this Love Garden tote, was commissioned to be made by Daniel Cascardo from the makers of True Religion perfume. This tote was a giveaway for their popular fragrance Hippy Chic, for valentines day.

The tote is a great size, and for me it has made a great stylish bog to grocery shop with. The bag is large enough to carry all of the items I need. And it even has a nice zip pouch inside. I am also looking forward to traveling with this bag, it will be great for the plane, plenty of room for the essentials, but small enough to carry it on. I love the wrap around print, it is so very colorful and just makes the bag pop! The pink handles are a nice touch too, it is my favorite color! And the thing I love most about the bag, is that Daniel himself signed this work of hart. this is a bag I will enjoy for years to come.
Now if you are in love with this tote and would like it for yourselves, make sure to check out your local Macy's and Dillard's department stores soon, you never know they may still have some for the Valentines Day promotion?

Be sure to check back to the site, Daniel is working on a  line of scarves and cover ups adorned with his amazing art.
