... taking favorite video game heroes
and putting them back in the ukiyo-e style ...
What are Chibies?
'Chibi' is a word that a Japanese person might use to describe that insanely cute little toddler who lives next door: Playful? Check! Small scale? Of course! Did we mention cute? Double check!!
Our Chibi Heroes fit that name perfectly ... a fun collection of woodblock prints created by Dave Bull and his workshop as an offshoot of Jed Henry's larger Ukiyoe Heroes designs. We had a blast making these, and we hope you will enjoy collecting them! Follow the links at the bottom of the page for more information.
You can also see all these images in 'single view' form, on this page.
Here are a few photos of a suggested way to store your Chibies. This is an album designed for collecting postage stamps; a search for 'postage stamp stockbook' should turn up many similar items. (Look for one that has black coloured pages - these show off the prints much more beautifully!)
Update: We are currently in the final stages of preparation of a special wooden box for this series. It will be a combination storage/display case; you can see a prototype on this blog post. We'll update this page as soon as the price/availability is confirmed. Thanks for your patience!
Under raking light, the wonderful paper texture is clearly visible ... (click for a closeup) ... these are beautiful little objects!
