Japantown Mural Project Dedication

I am finally posting a few images from the dedication of the Japantown Mural project. Here is my mural, Noodle Sipper. My daughter was my model and she poses here in front of the digitally printed fence mural during the Obon Festival. The Japantown Mural Project was coordinated by Tamiko Rast of Rasteriods Design. There are around 60 panels and 30 artists involved.
A Keepsy book was created to celebrate the dedication and you can see it here:

Here is an earlier posting on the development of this mural panel, Noodle Sipper.
