Love it! May I ask how did you do this?

@Chio Diez Thanks! My process pretty much involves drawing up the finished art, digitally retouching it and printing it flipped horizontally out of a laser copier. I then use gel medium (or a similar PVA compound I believe most things like that work) to coat the print out, let that dry completely, then coat my wood surface with the same stuff and lay the print out on top of it, making sure to smooth out any air bubbles. It's best to then leave it overnight to make sure it's completely dry, then I get a little tub of water and wetting the back of the print stuck to the wood I begin to rub off the excess paper to reveal the transfer underneath. I then finish it off with a coat of resin which gives a thick glossy seal effect.
Wow! Thank you @Megan Palmer. I have piled up wood boxes for a while (love them :) and I'm definetly trying out your method. Thanks for sharing! I'll post them if they end up being half cool as yours!
No worries! Tag me if you do some! @Chio Diez
