Cant wait to see how it turns out for yall. I'm fairly sure I will end up tracking it down after the smoke clears :D

So whats special about this pairing is that Zakuro's style was greatly influenced by the old guard of anime film. Belladonna of Sadness and of course Miyazaki's Nausicaa to name a few. So this really is a passion project for him and also a way to strengthen his screen printing game. The work he has been putting into the soon to be revealed arthouse collaborations will surely turn some heads. Hope to have a few more on board :pint:

I'm sure the other Nausicaa commission will be outstanding, but Zakuro's rendition will be something to behold. He has a passion for Nausicaa and with his distinctive rendering style, it will be a perfect match.

For those who have already bought the other Nausicaa, I can only say this: I'm sure many of you have multiple prints of Alien, Pulp Fiction and Terminator by different artists. Why not a second Nausicaa print? Both prints will have different interpretations to the property, and will be so different, you'll have to buy both.

Don't miss out!

Looks pretty interesting, request sent. Nausicaa has been a favorite of mine since I saw the horribly butchered Warriors of the Wind on HBO longer ago than I want to admit.

:lol:

Sorry i'm late! I was asleep, for a change. But I guess 6pm is about time I should be waking up. :P

Cheers, Maxx n Joe! I actually saw this thread 6wks back and ran cleanup as the embargo on another project was accidentally broken. Were it not for the fact i'm committed to a different Nausicaa commission i'd be all over this one - though, from the sound of it, this one is gonna be sick and I shoulda signed up.

Good luck to the commissioner and all involved!

Who says you only have to own one Nausicaa print? Count the many Alien, Tarantino, Star Wars, LOTR and Blade Runner prints all you guys all own and tell me one is just enough! :D
