  • Uprisings poster / $25.00
    The "Summer" image in the "The Seasons of the Bunny" series based on old Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints.  We originally created this or the cover of Giant Robot Magazine #28 in 2003, Its play on Hokusai's "Great Wave off Kanagawa" and has inadvertantly become our calling card, for better or for worse.

Over the years the image has been licensed for various uses, including an album cover for John Mayor, and several great products.
     
  • The publisher, Eric Nakamura gave us only about 4 days to come up with an image for the cover of this issue.  It was actually an image that had come to Dan in a dream (as cheesy as that sounds) - its was executed quite quickly. A pencil drawing from a sketchbook scanned and then completed created with Wacom tablet in Photoshop - line work, fill, simulated paper texture, and dirt all created completely in PS.
  • Front view of the original Uprisings bookend edition.

  • In 2010, Munky King produced a bookend version of "Uprisings" sculpted by Julie B at Pretty In Plastic. The first edition was extremely popular (even sold at Paul Smith's retail stores) and sold out quickly, so a second edition was produced which is also now hard to find.
