Ukiyo-e Heroes - En konst parodi på japanska spelcomment_here

ukuyo e heroes 
Jed Henry är en jäkel på att skissa och måla.
Nu var det ett bra tag sedan sist som jag skrev något alls om konst. Så nu gör jag come back med besked. Jag hörde nämligen talas om Jed Henry och Dave Bulls Ukiyo-e Heroes konstprojekt. Och vilket projekt det är sen. Jed har nämligen bestämt sig för att göra en konst parodi på Japanska spel, anime och Japansk popkultur.
Ukiyo-e Heroes vart till slut ett kickstarter projekt, och målet var att få in 10,400dollar. Till Jed och Daves stora förvåning, så fick de in 135,000dollar efter bara ett par dygn. Och då är det ändå 20dagar kvar på klockan.
Så gillar ni Japan, konst och tv-spel. Då ska ni helt klart stöda Ukiyo-e Heroes!
"What is Ukiyo-e Heroes?

A ton of fun, that's what! Ukiyo-e Heroes is a parody art project that follows the long tradition of popular art in Japan.  

For hundreds of years, Japanese woodblock printmakers worked in a thriving popular art scene.  Their prints depicted heroes, villains and monsters, spanning every genre from satire, to romance, to horror. It was all part of Ukiyo, or Floating World culture. Inventive and fast-paced, Ukiyo culture was the big movement of its day. That tradition has continued through the centuries, down to our modern day, where Japan is still known for its vibrant creativity. This heritage is especially evident in Japan's video game industry.  Boss fights. Invulnerable heroes. Holy swords. Even the classic double-jump can be traced back to medieval Japanese legends.

Long story short: the Japanese games we love are just the new chapter in an ancient, enduring culture.

To celebrate Japan's contribution to video games, illustrator Jed Henry has taken his favorite game characters, and returned them to the ukiyo-e style. Modern costuming has been traded for the medieval, but the essence of each character remains, proving that you can't take the Ukiyo out of these modern pop icons."
