Painting my suitcase

My sister bought me a wonderful set of luggage right before I went to Italy in 2002. A carry-on, a small case with wheels and a large case with wheels. Only problem is, it's the same color as everyone else's luggage. So I decided to paint it.

I love old maps, so I'm painting a map of Europe on it. I'm going to include a compass rose and a sea monster. Here's the progress so far.

And to think we just used colored electrical tape wrapped around the handles to distinguish our luggage from all the rest.

We were fools.

Very cool! If I had even an ounce of artistic ability (and somewhere to go that required actual luggage) I'd be tempted to try something similar.

Have a great trip!

Thanks. It will definitely help me find my bag on that damn carousel.
