Kevin decided to make the bags combine the need to save on plastic bags and help the environment with his artistic skills.

Kevin even advertises The Bag Issue, £5 pays for someone with a bag plastered in his logos to walk around the area and drum up interest.

Homeless charity, The Red Bag Co is trying to get Kevin his own stall to sell his work at the German Market which starts on November 7.
