Ukiyo-e Heroes – Delicious Reinterpretations of Our Favorite Video Game Characters

Written by Steph on . Posted in Video Games

If someone out there is making something or being even vaguely creative, there’s a better-than-average chance that I’ll be stupidly excited about it.  When that something is blisteringly awesome in the extreme, I generally flop around in paroxysms of joy for a while before telling everyone I know about it.   I encountered the Ukiyo-e Heroes […]
