The Mod Illustrator is a new, collaborative design from the Californian leather goods brand This is Ground and the Peruvian artist Alvaro FREEGUMS Ilizarbe. Embossed inside and out from zipper to spine, the brown leather organizer shows creativity all around. Indeed, the intricate graphics and texture are inspiring in and of themselves. Inside, the travel case holds a This is Ground notebook and a leather insert and signed card designed by FREEGUMS. Made to fit creative tools, the accessory helps artists organize their tools, from new wave items such as mobile devices to classics such as pens, pencils, ink, lead, and erasers. The Mod Illustrator can be found at select boutiques internationally and online from This is Ground, where the price starts at $380 for the iPod Mini version.
