Artist Comment

I've been in a recent wallpaper lull due to finals (now over! yea! yea!)
but I thought (just for fun) I'd share a project I did for one of my classes

This is a simple and very loose vector interpretation of a woodblock print by one of Japan's masters:
Moon Over Mountain by Hiroshige

The goal was to channel the old art style into something new and modern...don't know if I quite succeeded ^_^'

Also check out the monotone version of the vector for kicks

Japanese woodblock prints are definitely a really neat art form so check them out! :D

    Very cool. Love Edo period art, & this vector captures the look very well. Would have been interesting to see gradients here though.

    Wow... wow-squared! I never even thought I'd see a Hiroshige vector! This is both ingenius, and a little crazy! XD I love the almost pop-art feel to it, with the bold colours that don't conform to being within the lines, and the beauty of it too... simple genius!
