B-Movie Bags

If you know a certain lady who is into horror as much as we are, then check this site out. Artist and creater Julia Griffin, based in Ayrshire, Scotland, has some of the most killer hand painted purses I have seen, she is a trully talented artisan.

This is from the site:
B-Movie Bags is quite simply an homage to the Illustrative Artists of the 30's, 40's, 50's & 60's whose work often appeared on the Horror & B-Movie genre advertising posters of Universal Studios, RKO Radio & many others. Julia has selected a number of her favourite film posters from across these decades to hand paint on to great vintage handbags from the same era. The bags & images are thoughtfully paired together & hand painted using a good quality leather paint for a professional & durable finish. The result is a surprisingly authentic, functional & totally unique piece of Pop Art.
