'The Old Sage' Giclée Print



I'm very pleased with the overall tone and mood of this design. At first glance it seems to depict a simple meal shared by a master and his ward. But hidden imagery lurks in the shadows, hinting that  great danger is never far away...

When designing this image, I closely studied several Yoshitoshi prints, with a specific emphasis on 'The duel between Miyamoto Musashi and Tsukahara Bokuden', made in 1885. If you examine that design closely, you'll see where I borrowed a few key visual elements. 


The white cartouche reads:


Which roughly translates to:

If you choose the quick and easy path, you will become an agent of evil.

Archival pigments on acid-free handmade Japanese paper.

Every print is signed and sealed by the artist.
Measures 12x17 inches.

This print looks great in three standard 16 x 20 frames (US, Canada) or 40 x 50 cm (everywhere else).
Jed really likes this one for its simple design.


31.75 x 43 cm.
