There's a guy based in Japan that does stuff like this with woodblock prints. Look up Ukiyo-e Heroes if you haven't seen it before; very cool stuff!

I really like this adaptation. Nice job!

Edit: The artist that designs the actual artwork is Jed Henry. Dave Bull adapts the art to woodblock print form. Thanks to

for the clarification!

Yeah Dave Bull, he’s great. When I saw this I immediately thought of him and his woodblock prints

ID: h9k9dk1

That's the guy. Thanks! I couldn't remember it in the moment.

ID: h9kc8tn

The actual artist who comes up with the art is Jed Henry. He collaborates with Dave Bull who is a master wood block artist.

Fun fact: when the samurai class was abolished, they all became licensed plumbers.

Seppuku by plunger sounds nasty

Sounds shitty you mean.

Fun fact: Plumber comes from the root word “plumbum” which is the Latin derivation for the element English translated word “Lead” (Atomic Symbol, Pb). Plumbers were named that because they worked with lead pipes.

Fun fact: the word plumbus also comes from this root.

I now want a more Japanese Mario. Thank you

ID: h9jg634

Say no more! I got you covered:

Fire Mario

Super Samurai Mario World

Shadow Mario

Samurai Mario Bros NES

ID: h9kn54x

Do you make/sell prints?

ID: h9jrvu7

You got it!

ID: h9jttl6

Honestly just expected a normal picture of Mario since he’s a Japanese creation.

ID: h9k9vkl

My man!

ID: h9kiki6

Super Mario Odyssey's last world is samurai / japan themed.

So long, gay bowser!

Mario is getting cancelled by Twitter rn

Peach looks like John Lennon in a wig, so maybe there's more to this picture than we thought?

Now you're playing with honor!

Incredible drawing! I really like the art style, and the little details that some people wouldn’t be able to see. Also, Peach looks like a guy lol

ID: h9jfwei

Peach looking like a guy is 100% planned. Most kabuki theater's have women banned from acting in them.

ID: h9jg0j9

I didn’t know that, that’s interesting

ID: h9jkvnu

I was gonna say she looks like shaggy ngl

ID: h9jj1jx

The real Peach is in another castle.

ID: h9jt5xo

Yeah, this is Princess Pete, the cross-dressing imposter.

ID: h9jx719

You've rescued her stunt double!

ID: h9jztko

What little details does your masterful artistic eye see that we lay people can not?

ID: h9jnf7f

Also, Peach looks like a guy lol

Which definitely fits the art style:

ID: h9k0dnt

what are some of those details you don't think people would see?

ID: h9k0s1e

and the little details that some people wouldn’t be able to see.

This is an exceptionally douchey way of saying "My taste in art is much more refined than yours."

What are some of those details?

The feminine penis is the divine harmony that will propel man to the stars!

That’s pretty cool, need to sell framed prints - I’d buy one

ID: h9jh7n9

Thanks so much for your support! I actually do sell my art as framed prints, but I can't post the link here because I think it's against subreddit rules. So I'll just pm you once it's up for sale x)

EDIT: I'm getting a lot of messages, so it's hard for me to keep messaging people one by one (I have to bus to work lol). So, mods please forgive me if I post just one link to my printshop. Anyways everyone, here you go:

ID: h9jl52i

Love the artwork! I would also like a link to your store

Isn't it ピーチ... well that's dope nonetheless

ID: h9ju799

That'd be more accurate since "Peach" is not translated, with 姫 at the end for "princess" (pichi-hime).

ID: h9jytgt

It’s the same in English technically. Her name is “Princess Peach”.

Is that Shaggy dressed as Peach?

ID: h9jzl97

Things were a bit rough after the Scooby gang split up. Unemployment benefits had run out long ago, you take what gig you can.

ID: h9k3zq6

Of course it's not Peach. The princess is in another castle.

No Luigi I’m not happy

ID: h9jhahf

look again, the 'princess' has Luigi's long oval face and not Peach's smaller heart shaped face

13 : Anonymous2021/08/19 15:57 ID: h9jopf3

Peach is waluigi in disguise

I'm somehow getting some Kaido vibes here ngl.
