A mural celebrating Daniel Farke and the Canaries has brought a splash of colour to a Norwich pub and become, it is hoped, the first of several similar pieces of art.
It is part of a push by Along Come Norwich to see unused and empty walls around the city given a fresh lick of yellow and green paint after a successful season for the club.
Gnasher Murals started work at the pub on Saturday morning, continuing throughout the day and finishing his masterpiece at roughly 5pm.
Jon Punt, of Along Come Norwich, said it looked even better than he expected, and that Gnasher had captured the essence of Farke.
"We have got the best colours in world football," he said, "and we don't make enough of that around Norwich.
"There's brilliant art around the city centre and some great murals, but not much celebrating the football club.
"We are calling for people who are willing to give us wall space."

He said any homeowners or business owners with empty walls they were happy to put forward should get in touch.
By the afternoon the mural was already catching the eye of City fans, with posts on social media praising it.
Landlord of the Fat Cat and Canary Christian Hodgkinson said he had jumped at the chance to be involved when Along Come Norwich got in touch.
He said the "amazing" mural had gone down well with customers, and that it would be a good talking point for those at the pub.
He said he hoped it would encourage people to visit the pub for a pint and a look at the mural.
