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…
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.
