Supermarkets here in Dubai are generally quite free and easy when it comes to handing out carrier bags. I have a tendency to forget to take bags with me, so I pretty much always have to pick up a new one. It seems such a waste to throw them away if they’re in good condition, and as a result I have a rather impressive collection. It recently got to the point where I could no longer shut the door to the cupboard under the kitchen sink and something really had to be done. This illustration was the result. Originally, I was just going to write a quick note reminding myself and my flatmates to pick up a bag on the way out the door, but then the idea of the carrier bag tugging on the guy’s trouser leg popped into my head, so I started drawing. I’ve put a copy of it on my facebook page (www.facebook.com/dubaiartist?ref=hl) if you like it and want to print one out for yourself.
