Look at these amazing Japanese-woodblock-style gaming prints

I just discovered the astonishing artwork of Jed Henry and Dave Bull, and I had to share it with you. They’ve been using the art form of Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints, but with video-game characters instead of the traditional Japanese scenes you’d expect. So here we have the Starfox team riding on clouds…

…a Pokemon tournament…

…and even a Mario Kart race.

You can find out more about the artists at the Ukiyo-e Heroes website, and they have a shop with loads more of these woodprint mash-ups with video-game culture, including prints based on Metroid, Zelda and Sonic the Hedgehog. There are also a few non-video-game ones, featuring the likes of Batman and Wolverine.

All of them look utterly amazing, and I’m already planning which ones to get for my wall.
