Woohoo!!! I finally made it! Bubble tea sticker for everyone! As you probably know, I am super obsessed with bubble tea / boba tea. And just this week, we got a new laser printer at home, so first things first, test out my new bubble tea illustrations! The sticker paper that I used isn’t the best quality since it’s actually made for address labels. But no worries, bubble tea makes everything better!

If you haven’t seen it, it’s about a blue-collar salesman, Kantaro, who plays hooky from work to have desserts.
