new prints of Bill Mudron

Here is our wonder | wander | world pick of the week.

If Miyazaki was a pre-WWII Japanese wood print artist, here's what his characters might look like.

Studio Ghibli Characters Look Even Better in Traditional Japanese Wood-Cut Style

In a new series of posters from illustrator Bill Mudron, an alternate history is imagined - if beloved animator Hayao Miyazaki was born a half century earlier, he might have been a wood printer in the vein of shin-hanga print artist Kawase Hasui.

A marvelous mashup of Japanese cultural icons, casting peaceful settings from Miyazaki films like My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, and Spirited Away, in Hasui's turn-of-the-century "new prints" style.
