More Japanese Woodblock Nintendo Characters

Remember Jed Henry's series of Nintendo game characters as traditional Japanese Ukiyo-e woodblock prints? Well he's back with even more, this time featuring some Pokemon, Kirby, Star Fox, Mario Kart, Donkey Kong, Street Fighter (not Nintendo, but WHATEV) and Castlevania action (plus a Link in progress). I didn't realize Jed actually turns the drawings into real woodblock prints, but he does, and he's gonna start selling them August 1st. And is it a coincidence my birthday is the 12th?! Yes. Jesus, this isn't a conspiracy theory.

Hit the jump for the rest, along with a couple videos of Jed cutting and inking one of the actual blocks.
