'A New Friend from Long Ago' Giclée Print
I love the background paintings in this film - I could stare at them for days! And even though it's not a perfect fit, I wanted to approach this magical world with my own traditional block print aesthetic. To capture as much detail as possible, I decided to work in the modern Shin-hanga style, which is known for its realism and complex color schemes. I think the final design came out pretty well!
The caption reads 彩輝萬夢, which is an abbreviated kanji-only translation meaning 'Endless Dreams in Paint and Light".
Archival pigments on acid-free handmade Japanese paper.
Every print is signed and sealed by the artist.
Measures 12x17 inches.
