$174.00 - $209.00

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!

    Second All Black Sendak

    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!!!

    I love it, but there

    I love it, but there is just one thing that doesn’t seem right. The band slips when it is placed in the buckle. I believe the band should be just a tad wider. If it wouldn’t slip, then the band would serve as a handle. As it is, it doesn’t work that way.

    I am amazed at how

    I am amazed at how much room there is for my tools. If anything I have more than enough room for a travel kit for Sketching! It is well made and keeps everythingin place. I always love waxed canvas and fits perfect with my waxed canvas messenger bag.

    Oh I love my Sendak immensely!

    This handy lovely black burnished carryall is the most elegant piece. What fun to fill the interior with just the right pencils, brushes and tiny watercolor tubes. The workmanship is perfectly thoughtout , the size is just right and the leather compliments the whole. Having all my tools at hand in this dandy Sendak was more than inspiring. This little "book" has a permanent place on my work desk! Thank you to the designer and facilitators and to Peg and Awl for producing such brilliant items!

    Some of the pen pockets couldn’t pull my markers in that.
