I’m John, and I’m the creator of the DrawBag.

I’ve been a professional actor, artist, director, writer, and educator, but in 2017 I decided to try my hand at designing something to encourage individual expression and creativity in ways I hadn’t seen before.

That year, I’d noticed various papers were starting to be used more in the fashion bag industry, but no one was doing what seemed the obvious thing to me: inviting people to write on their surface! So I developed a backpack with an attached marker for the purpose of encouraging people everywhere to write and draw on the bag in ways that were only limited by their imagination.

The result was the DrawBag: a wearable form of expression that becomes completely unique for each different person and for each different way it’s used.

You can check out some of the ways people are using it on Instagram and Facebook. And feel free to connect and share with the world how YOU use your DrawBag through the hashtag #thedrawbag.

I can’t wait to see yours in action!

Draw On,
