Tote bag for Philly food blog Foobooz. They wanted a street scene of one of Philly's new "restaurant rows" and I went with East Passyunk since it's not only 4 blocks from my house but also an awesome mix of old south philly stuff and new hipster yuppie stuff (and people).
When I was shooting photos the guy in the butcher shop came out in his bloody apron and started screaming at me about insurance and lawyers or something. Awesome. Won't stop me from going there for some cheap chicken parts though.
It was tough to simplify it enough so that it would work for a screenprint, there's about 100 more places I wanted to jam in there - especially the amazing Patrick Nagel-esque King Of Jeans sign.
Head on over to Foobooz.com and pick one up or check out their new line of T-shirts. They're also now available at Green Aisle Grocery (1618 Passyunk Ave), 15 bucks a pop.
