Bob Snead is unapologetic for living with his in-laws. He’s been unemployed (or rather severely under-employed) for almost three years. In 2007, he graduated from Yale University School of Art with a MFA in painting and spent the next two years traveling the roads of North America with the artist collective Transit Antenna. Equipped with the experience of odd jobs from the road, Bob unsuccessfully applied for steady work in the academic world earlier this year. Rather than letting rejection break him in these uncertain times, he started making wallets. Wallets with attention to design, meticulously crafted, and most importantly have a twenty dollar bill stitched inside. Now, no matter what, he always has money in his recession proof wallet. Bob Snead is not broke. You can be too.
Bob has survived in part by running a vehicle on free waste vegetable oil and the wallet’s vibrant hand printed exterior colors evoke two items that shape the life of anyone burning veg: the endless 5 gallon cube veg containers and a tangled mess of hose. Each wallet is handmade in the USA with a hand printed exterior, 4 credit card slots, ID window slot, two hidden pockets, and twenty bucks printed in the bill slot. Full size of wallet is 8.5”x3.5” folded 4.25”x3.5” developed from a mix of durable canvas, vinyl, and nylon. Limited Edition of 100.
