Jed Henry - Ukiyo-e Heroes 

Ok, now this is probably one of the coolest and original Geek-Art of the year ! Jed Henry got inspired by Japanese “Ukyio-e”. For those who don’t know, Rubens from Koikoikoi gives a short explaination : ”Ukiyo-e are the traditional woodblock prints from Japan, probably the most famous is the “Great Wave off Kanagawa” by Hokusai”. Mixing traditional Japanese art and Japanese vintage video games heroes… What a neat idea ! Meet Mario, Pokemon, Megaman, Kirby, Starfox and many, many more in the full article ! You also have to know that the Mario one will be on sales soon, printed by professional woodblock printer, David Bull, traditional way…
