    No…Link is fighting Gannon, the big bad guy from the Zelda universe. Some sort of a pig demon thing. And he is, in fact, defeated by shooting him with a silver arrow, at least in the original NES game.

    Sorry if that’s a spoiler for anyone on how to win, but I’d hope 25 years was enough spoiler time. ;-)

    I like these and I can’t wait to see more of them.  Just last week I was thinking of doing some ukiyo-e inspired mash-up stuff of my own. Does Jed do  these with ink and/or paint or are they digital?

  6. Jed Henry says:

    Hey, Rich!  I do the ink work with a brush pen.  Then I scan it and finish it in digital

      Thanks, Jed. I thought that your lines looked really crisp and might be “analog.” I’m going to have to pick up some more brushpens.  It’s fun how you incorporated the Triforce as a textile motif

    This is 10,000,000,000 kinds of awesome. I studied Ukiyo-e in college for my degree, love them deeply, and love Zelda even more deeply. This is the beauty of the modern age incarnate. I MUST HAVE A POSTER OF THIS!
