Phoenix Bag Design by Charmed-Ravenclaw Phoenix Bag Design by Charmed-Ravenclaw
So, this is my bag I've had ever since I was 15. It's been a good hardy little bag but I suppose I'm somewhat getting bored of it. Hence, a splash of colour and personality to something that was probably generically made by machines.

I have a friend who went through depression. She got a tattoo of a phoenix to symbolise her "rise from the ashes" and I've constantly thought of phoenixes that way ever since. That's what subconsciously inspired this piece and that's what the slight re-invention of my bag is - whilst it's by no means ashes, it is having a bit of a fresh start and a new life.

Phoenix drawn in Adobe Illustrator. Bird is something of a cross between a peacock and a crane.

EDIT: So I decided to add Hope as an additional concept to the back of the bag. The main concept of Hope came from here: . I thought it also fit in with the phoenix on the bag. I think there is no rebirth or redemption without hope and that's what I added to the bag.
