Ukiyo-e Heroes: Illustrations by Jed Henry

Jed Henry is an artist, lifelong gamer and Japanophile who combines all his passions to create the great Ukiyo-e Heroes series.

“Ukiyo culture was once a thriving scene for Japan’s woodblock printmakers, whose works depicted monsters, villains, and heroes – and themes ranging from satire, romance and drama. This creative style and tradition was passed down through the centuries, to now be readily identifiable in Japan’s video game industry.

The Ukiyo-e Heroes features Jed Henry’s favourite game characters and stories styled in the classic Ukiyo way, to celebrate this well-loved industry.”
