Hope you enjoy the post, and as always any thoughts, comments and feedback are welcome below ;)
The first was a set of installations at a Japanese/Jamaican Vegan restaurant called the TerraZen Centre in the city centre (on Sint Jacobsstraat).
The concept behind the mural was to create a piece that fused the African/Jamaican influence of one of the owners with the Japanese influence of the co-owner.
To do this I used the zen-like colours from the existing mural on the opposite wall and intermingled them with the bold african colours of the rasta flag:
I tried getting some of my existing designs printed onto stickers but found they didn't stand out well enough so I created some designs that would be particularly eye-catching and effective on a sticker:
There are 2 different ranges at the moment, one featuring some original designs and another featuring the 3 X's of the Amsterdam flag:

I'll be aiming to add new creations to the shop regularly and fill it with lots of new items throughout 2020...
The shop is still under construction - I really wanted it to be ready in time for Christmas but unfortunately due to a few technical issues it probably won't be fully ready until the New Year.
That being said there are already a few items in the shop in case you wanted to take a sneak peak before the official launch (which should be sometime in mid-late Jan 2020).
