There’s no limit to the breadth of human self-expression. There are however, a few logistical issues when it comes to taking that self-expression on the go. Murals might make for a good installation piece, but most establishments don’t appreciate your bringing your own walls and ceiling. Interpretive Dance requires nothing more than your own body, but it won’t make you any friends while you’re on line at the Super Market. Accessorizing you car is an effective way to get noticed, but it may invoke the wrong type of attention when those accessories go flying off on the highway. Based on these examples, we can establish our criteria: The means of self-expression must be portable, compatible with normal activities, and not leave one liable for criminal negligence. One such means would be a decorated Tote Bag! Watch the video below for instructions on making your own.
