'Tank Head' Woodblock Print
This might be history in the making! To my knowledge this is the first time a mecha has ever been portrayed in woodblock print form. For that reason alone, it's a collector's item.
We've teamed up with master mech designer Emerson Tung, and made a print on his classic 'Tank Head' design. If you look closely, Japanese printing is a good match for this design. The mech's shell looks very much like a samurai's yoroi armor, and it even has sashimono flags, which were once used to identify friend from foe in battle.
This print features a subtle, classic title embossing in the bottom left corner. Even cooler, the exposed gold and silver areas have a metallic effect added in the printing process. Shiny!
This print was created in the traditional Japanese fashion, with hand-carved blocks, handmade pigments on handmade Japanese paper. It was created by apprentice craftsman William Francis, who works full-time as a printmaker in the UK. By purchasing this print, you are helping to support the next generation of dedicated printmakers.
