So this is what at least five figures gets you. Unfortunately, my pay would need to multiply a few times for me to be able to comfortably drop that much. I dig it and would, but that pricing was brutal.

EDIT: It is.

Holy fudge, I think this is in Los Angeles on Sawtelle right next to Tsujita Annex. Best ramen I've had in the States, though it may no longer be since Ichiran opened up in New York. I need to head over there to see this beauty in person, I hope he makes this a print.

I’ve been going to Sawtelle for many years, and while waiting in line for ramen, I would always feel oppressed by the vulgar advertisements looming overhead on this one particular billboard. So, using my own resources, I placed “Udon II” at Sawtelle Boulevard between La Grange Avenue and Mississippi Avenue as an homage to the area and the many memories I have from there. It will be displayed directly above Giant Robot Gallery on Sawtelle Boulevard until the end of April, 2017. #sawtelle #sawtellejapantown #littleosaka #jamesjean #billboard

I've smoked weed that makes you feel just like that.

Do you mean spending over 10 grand on james jean drawing, or feeling similar to the imagery of the work?

Let's make this print happen:
Udon II. I made this image specifically for a billboard on Sawtelle Boulevard as a tribute to the neighborhood (see previous post). If you're interested in a print release, like or comment below and we could potentially keep the billboard up through June. #sawtellejapantown #udon #ramen #boba #kappa #gingko

JAMES JEAN | STORE

COMING SOON: “UDON II”

http://store.jamesjean.com/products/udon-ii

“Udon II” is a signed and numbered time-limited edition of giclée prints. They will be made available for 24 hours starting at 8:00 AM PDT on Monday, April 10 and ending at 7:59 AM PDT on Tuesday, April 11. The edition will be limited by the number of prints sold during those 24 hours and never reprinted.

“Udon II” was created specifically for a billboard in Sawtelle Japantown in Los Angeles. Also known as “Little Osaka,” this historic area is filled with all sorts of Asian culinary delights. I’ve been going to Sawtelle for many years, and while waiting in line for ramen, I would always feel oppressed by the vulgar advertisements looming overhead on this one particular billboard. So, using my own resources, I placed “Udon II” at Sawtelle Boulevard between La Grange Avenue and Mississippi Avenue as an homage to the area and the many memories I have from visiting this unique neighborhood. There’s no name, text, or signature on the billboard – just an image of a gingko sprite feeding her offspring noodles from the head of a kappa. It will be displayed directly above Giant Robot Gallery on Sawtelle Boulevard until the end of April, 2017.
