Yep, I can draw boxes and bags from memory


SPJ J-Mart, 2012

I bet you think that’s a real shopping bag, don’t you? Well it’s not. It’s just some vector shapes cobbled together, a “texture” made with a Photoshop paint brush, and the Society of Professional Journalists’ logo laid on top with a little transparency applied to let the fake paper texture shine through.

And that’s it. Now you have all the tools you need to make your own fake paper bags and cardboard boxes. Use your new power responsibly.
