High quality back lit prints inserted in handmade wooden frames.
The matter of diamonds.
A slightly straightforward and obvious short story. Looking for a perfect blend of the traditional comic book panels and early adventure game layouts.
I created a t-shirt design for Ava Luna. Available in a crew neck or a deep v.
Pick one up online or at our shows.

THE SHHO recently interviewed KDU founder and CEO, David Gensler on the state of Street Wear, Pop Culture and the idea of Influence. Never known to bite his tongue, the interview with David is an honest and candid conversation about the state of affairs facing designers and marketers in the modern age.
Longtime friends, Osamu Koyama and David Gensler collaborated to produce a series of hand crafted, antique tailoring shear pendants. The project pays tribute to David Gensler’s extensive personal collection of tailoring shears, which number over 800 and span some 450 years of sartorial history.
Focusing on three styles of shears, English, French and American, the collaboration took 6 months to finalize, with each master design being hand carved by Osa. Limited runs will be sold directly by SVSV and will come in a variety of materials including pure gold, silver and brass.
