The Sendak Artist Roll is designed with the nomadic artist in mind. This treasure carries your current arsenal of tools with you from the studio to coffee shop to en plein air.
In the Kent family, the Sendak has become an interactive centerpiece. Placed in the center of a table or picnic blanket, a group of drawers and dreamers gathers ’round. A session begins and ends with the Sendak, filled with a bouquet of colors, brushes and pens. As its namesake Maurice Sendak wrote, “Let the wild rumpus start!” And get messy – because clean-up is easy!

I used to have an expanding pencil bag/case that I was always digging through for this specific pencil, or that specific inking pen, knowing I was always carting around too much stuff I wasn’t actually using. The Sendak’s design helped me pare down to what I truly use on a regular basis and it’s all easy to see without having to take things out.
It’s become my daily art kit carrying case and fits my pencils, erasers, graphite block, mica watercolor cake, regular watercolor tin, and a small folio of my favorite watercolor paper cut to fit the large back pockets. It goes with me everywhere and I love that it’s maleable enough to change size and shape based on what I’m carrying that day.
The moss color is also stunning! I want everything in this color!

I failed to grab it in 2022 and I didn't make the same mistake in 2023. Totally worth the wait.

I have a tearjerker of a story . So back in 2018 I went to Quebec for the first time to see all
My favorite cousins and their kids . Family of about 20 just in Quebec . My lovely niece had just graduated and she’s the only female in that huge family of males . She knows 4 languages and super smart . I had lost both my grandparents the prior year and my good job with the Gov and was well feeling shitty at that time . Trip was already paid for but I didn’t have a gift for her . I recall she kept looking at my Sendak which was fairly new . I knew she loved it . So I gave it her her and she smiled so much I forgot my shortcomings . Anyway I told myself I would get one again one day and I did ! Peg and Awl are so close to
My heart because they keep me close to art and well made things we take for granted . Thank you guys for making one my favorite holder of all things artsy !! You guys truly make the best bags!!!
