The Last of Us, Ghost of Tsushima and Animal Crossing became Ukiyo-e paintings
The Last of Us, Ghost of Tsushima, Animal Crossing and many other famous video games and films have become Ukiyo-e paintings thanks to the work of two American artists: the illustrator Jed Henry and the wood printer Dave Bull.

Thanks to Kickstarter, the two created a site called Ukiyo-e heroes, through which they sell their works all over the world, strictly inspired by the most famous video games, but also by books, television series and films. The quality of their work is undeniable, especially for the originality with which Jed Henry, a long-time video game enthusiast and illustrator, has transformed the most famous faces into Ukiyo-e paintings.

There are Cloud Strke from Final Fantasy 7, but also Ellie and Joel from The Last of Us or the cute animals from Animal Crossing. They all keep their original characteristics, but they also gain something that makes them more traditional and in line with this famous painting style.

It is Dave Bull's job, then, to print these images on paper, using wooden matrices similar to those used in Japan between the 17th and 20th centuries. Below we present some pictures. In case you are interested this is the address of the Ukiyo-e heroes website.
