ARTIST COLLABORATION TOTE BAG
Inspired by Chinese and Japanese folklore, a guardian spirit is a mysterious entity that haunts humans and influences their character and behaviour. Jen created all the images from original words of description. Instead of using traditional watercolour and ink, she mixed acrylic with gouache and finished with colour pencils to add highlights to Eastern freehand. 

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jen Xu is an artist/illustrator based in Shanghai. 

ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATION - 白泽 / Bái Zé /
Bái Zé is a mythical beast from an ancient Chinese tale. Its name appears in many Chinese classics as an auspicious sign. It was described as a beast with a goat’s head and a lion’s body.
