I created my first ukiyo-e samurai Mario “Hunting Season” back in 2009, which went viral online. Since then I have been adding ukiyo-e style into many of my artworks and I was also commissioned by WWE to create artwork for their magazine.

This year, I’m starting a new ukiyo-e series based on popular movie, animation and gaming.
