THE JOURNAL

Tartan and trinkets, with artist Anna Marrone

We can learn a lot about someone from the material objects they rely on โ€“ the uses they hold, and the stories they tell. With Anna Marrone, we get the strong sense that tactility is everything.

As a designer, sheโ€™s into printed stationery and signage. As an artist and illustrator she sketches photorealistic portraits of animals, people and objects. And in her spare time, she likes to take a tattoo needle to her friends (upon their request, of course).

So itโ€™s no surprise that the objects in Annaโ€™s Classic Pouch are like physical memories โ€“ trinkets with a travel story, and objects that have a long-lasting purpose. The relaxed joy she exudes in person, is reflected in her eclectic set of essentials. Curious yet unassuming, unique yet full of purpose.

โ€œI often go to the โ€˜cofficeโ€™ (cafรฉ office) just to get out of the house and do some drawings. Everything I do still starts by hand. I really donโ€™t know how else to do itโ€ฆโ€

Anna's Classic Pouch and its contents.
โ€œThese essentials represent convenience mixed with a bit of nostalgia,โ€ Anna says. โ€œI tend to remember when, where and how I acquired everything โ€“ which is probably why Iโ€™m a bit of a hoarder. It seems like a lot of stuff for that little pouch, doesnโ€™t it?โ€

Where she sees โ€˜hoarderโ€™, we see a person who enjoys a happy memory sparked by an object. And who appreciates their value in day-to-day life that others might underestimate. A fan to keep her cool on the dancefloor so sheโ€™s free to focus on the music not the heat, for exampleโ€ฆ or the pizza slice patch sheโ€™s sewn on to the front of the pouch to represent her Italian heritage โ€“ and in a broader sense, family. As Anna has strengthened further for us, the reliance people have on their essentials might feel common, but the objects themselves tell a unique story.

After all, do you know anyone else who carries a tattoo needle alongside their bike lights?

THE STORIES BEHIND THE STUFF.

Her favorite pencil.

โ€œI often go to the โ€˜cofficeโ€™ (cafรฉ office) just to get out of the house and do some drawings. Work is still really fun for me. I mean, you canโ€™t complain about getting commissioned to draw puppies! I feel like Iโ€™m really lucky to be able to go somewhere by myself, and have something to do. This super special mechanical pencil is what I always use. It was a birthday present from a friend 8 years ago and itโ€™s been perfect. Everything I do still starts by hand. I really donโ€™t know how else to do it... Then, if needed, Iโ€™ll scan it in and work it up on the computer.โ€

Tattoo needles.

โ€œIโ€™ve been tattooing for about 10 years. Tattoo trading is fun. Itโ€™s such a nice thing to offer, as a creative person. When I started out, I was just using a sewing needle strapped to a pencil with some cotton... Now I just use a long needle as-is. It used to seem fiddly, but Iโ€™m used to it.โ€

Tartan scrunchie.

โ€œI refuse to believe that they ever went out of style. I got this one in an amazing store in Zurich in 2010. The fancy store had beautiful silk tartan things, tartan everything. And Iโ€™m obsessed with tartan. This was all I could afford, but Iโ€™m really happy with it. Iโ€™ll often wear my hair out and then get too hot, especially on the D-floor! So itโ€™s great for dancing.โ€

The rest.

A metro card, โ€œI never bloody know where it is. Iโ€™m always scrounging around the bottom of my bag looking for that guy. So the little side pocket is its new spot.โ€

A fan โ€œis equally as important on the D-floor or at a festival.โ€

A red lipstick โ€œfor when youโ€™re in a beauty emergency โ€“ when youโ€™ve gotta make yourself look way better than you actually do.โ€

The beer keyring โ€œa friend bought me, that says โ€˜Cheers from Amsterdamโ€™. My house key lives on it.โ€

Bike lights, โ€œagain always scrounging around the bottom of my bag. And theyโ€™ve fallen out of my bag before. They just seem to be the thing that goes missing, when all you want to do is get on your bike and go.โ€

โ€œThis stuff and my notebook is all I need, which is great. Itโ€™s refreshing not to have all my things floating around the bottom of my tote and Iโ€™m determined to keep up my new, improved level of organisation.โ€
