Bringing Video Games To The Floating World

Ukiyo-e is a unique style of Japanese Woodblock Prints and Paintings but, translated to English literally, it means floating world. In a way this translation helps these incredible Ukiyo-e video game art works make sense in context. Video games really are floating worlds, and with this art they've become part of Ukiyo-e.

These paintings are being sold on Kickstarter starting August 1, and they look incredible.Featuring characters such as Donkey Kong, Mario, Zelda and Samus — the detail and style of these creations is pretty mindblowing.

    The Pokemon one is silly because it's based on the anime rather than the game, and I thought these were video game related art. He's does awesome work otherwise!
