Do you remember those awesome Ukiyo-e styled Nintendo game characters? Now these great woodblock designs have been available. Let’s go on checking the Ukiyo-e Heroes print set.
Ukiyo-e Heroes is an awesome print set that contains 14 well-designed prints based on Ukiyo-e, a genre of traditional Japanese woodblock prints and paintings, of course, as we can see from the images, plus those familiar game characters from classic video games including the Legend of Zelda, Mega Man, Metroid Prime, Super Street Fighters, Okami, Pocket Monster and more. All the Ukiyo-e styled illustrations are designed by Jed Henry, while its authentic woodblock prints will be made by Dave Bull. Moreover, all of Jed’s designs are also available as in high-end giclée prints, and each giclée print measures 12 x 17 inches.
