Artist Statement

Exuberant. Inclusive. Optimistic. Sketched in real time. These are the drawings of Jason Polan, an NYC-based artist, from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Known for his book “Every Person In New York: Volume 1,” Jason drew the perpetually moving inhabitants of New York City, including its animals, featured on the re-issued Zoo Baggu, and the new Doggu.

Exhibited worldwide, Polan's illustrations have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, ARTnews, and more. Jason was also a stellar human, and he is dearly missed. 

This best-selling reusable bag from Baggu is not just for the grocery store. Carry in your hand or over your shoulder. Holds 2-3 plastic grocery bags worth of stuff. Folds into a flat 5 in. x 5 in. pouch. Holds 50 lbs.

 

Why We Love It

"If you’re not yet familiar with Baggu’s reusable bags, well… ok that’s kinda weird ‘cause they’re almost ubiquitous at this point, but also you’re welcome. You are gonna love your sturdy, lightweight and eminently portable Baggu for its practicality, but you are gonna love it even more because it’s also a canvas for Jason’s enchanting koalas, kiwis and myriad other animals whose names don’t begin with k. (Horseshoe crabs! A pangolin… or maybe it’s an armadillo? Hard to tell, maybe Jason can tell you. Also I think there’s a flying squirrel maybe? There’s definitely a bat.)" ...
