It seems modernizing ukiyo-e with pop culture icons can never get old. Through the several we’ve seen from Jed Henry of Ukiyo-e heroes and William Chua of xiaobaosg, we’ve yet to see one that’s Star Wars related. That stated, here are three upcoming prints by Tokyo based painter, Masumi Ishikawa that should get any Star Wars fan excited.
Now here’s the bad news for those of us outside of Japan. Ishikawa’s project can only be secured through a crowdfunding site called Makuake. Much like a KICKSTARTER project, folks can choose between pledge levels from individual prints to the holy trinity set. Considering its already exceeded its campaign goals, there may be a glimpse of hope for a global release after its initial launch on November 15th.
