75 Years of Prohibition with Dampie at the Hoodlab Checkout images from the official world debut of the Dutch hemp artist, Dampie at the Hoodlab in Denver, Colorado. The event, "Celebrating 75 Years of Prohibition" took place October 12th and gave attendees a chance to be among the first in the world to view Dampie's newest pieces (shown below). As always, the Hoodlab put on an amazing party with more than enough talent on their walls to please any art enthusiast. Also new that evening, the Hoodlab unveiled tons of new work on their graffiti wall outside, which as you can see from the group shot in this slideshow, was quite a hit. Make sure to stop by the Hoodlab soon to check out Dampie's work which will be on display for a few weeks (Check with the Hoodlab for more info!)

Stay tuned for tons of images from the NEW Hoodlab and see more of Kim's work at

Who is Dampie? Dampie is the creator of many HoodLamb designs advocating Hemp and its many uses. He worked together with HoodLamb to create the signature Cannaflage pattern, also used by the Sea Shepherds’ on their campaigns saving marine wild life in the Arctic Oceans. The cannaflage pattern is symbolizing the cannarmy that promotes sustainability and evolution of culture. 

As a modern pre-historic man he leaves his mark on the cave walls of society in the form of sustainable fashion and paintings. Inspired by vintage advertising strategies used during the Prohibition he advocates the message that we need to evolve and change the stance on worlds most versatile plant called Hemp.

New Work for Hemp Hoodlamb Checkout my latest work for Hemp Hoodlamb and read more about this top notch company below...

"Hemp HoodLamb was established in Amsterdam in 1993 and is an independent hemp label offering a broad collection of refreshing hemp gear. With HoodLamb our main aim is to promote a contra-movement against the mass-production and mass-pollution of the clothing industry and to demonstrate that a solution for sustainable living can be found in hemp. When it comes to design, we choose not to follow the hypes of the fashion world but create apparel that is timeless and innovative. For every new collection HoodLamb works together with guest designers to create unique pieces and prints. Progress is a key-element of the HoodLamb philosophy and each new season HoodLamb features new developments within eco-technology, functionality and sustainability.

Supporting the good cause is important to us and since 2009 HoodLamb has a close friendship with Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (from: Animal Planet’s reality show Whale Wars!). Sea Shepherd is an international non-profit wildlife conservation organization with a mission to end destruction of marine habitat and unnecessary slaughter of wildlife in the oceans. HoodLamb supports Sea Shepherd in their direct actions and this friendship has resulted in an exclusive HoodLamb X Sea Shepherd merch line. For each purchased item a donation of $6 – $40 goes straight into the pocket of conserving and protecting eco systems and species from illegal whalers."
