Whimsical Woodblock Prints

Artist Mao Nakada combines traditional Japanese woodblock printing and his imagination to create these whimsical illustrations.

Alyssa Anda explains:
The traditional technique starts when the artist draws on a washi, a thin paper used to transfer the material, which is then glued onto a plank. Using a small instrument, the washi is then pressed against the paper, which transfers the image.

Via My Modern Met.

    Nice wolf hat!
    It sort of says, “I’m formal, but I’m here to howl at the moon.”
    It’s like a tuxedo tee shirt.
