“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.” ~ Martha Graham

Jacob's Eye (Absolutely Funk!)

Jacob is a SELF-TAUGHT artist and craftsman that hails from Kingston, Jamaica. Since 1997 Jacob has been the proprietor of Jacob's Eye in scenic Fort Greene, Brooklyn. This up and coming neighborhood buzzes with many talented artists, including Eryk Ba, who is a long-time customer and one of his beautiful models. His unique afro-centric handbags are undeniably bold conversation pieces consciously created without the use of machines.
