Huge gratitude to Jah & Lovie at @street_prints for welcoming me back to both their festivals and family.

and they are sacred to Maori culture and synonymous with signs of warning. Given the earthquakes here a few years ago, from which the city is still visibly recovering, I felt it only right to reference the disaster but also to look forward to the future in a way that I can only hope local people will.
Big ups to my apprentice for the week @distrangeddesign (and his parents Jeff and Kelly) for going above and beyond the call of duty.
To @taaniko and @soldiersrd for reference photos and relevant info which made my process a doddle.
To everyone at @ymca_christchurch who made us all feel so welcome.
To all the other artists @kevinledo @claire_foxton @ampparito @kell.sunshine @mrcinzah @crackedink @_dside @erikapearce.artist @mayonaize and @yoshi_travel for their humour and their company... I’ll miss u guys.
And last but not least to Jah & Lovie at @street_prints for having me back here in NZ for both festivals... it’s been great to be part of the family again.
