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 - 鲛人 / jiāo rén / Mermaid
Jiāo Rén is originally from the Chinese book “Classic of Mountains and Seas”. It is a half human half fish creature. They live in the deep southern sea and hide from humans. The tears of Jiāo Rén can turn to pearls. The precious oil from their fishtail is used by humans for the lanterns and believed to last for tens of thousands years. Therefore, Jiāo Rén becomes a symbol of eternal life and wealth.
