Jed Henry

Jed Henry is an illustrator, lifelong gamer, Japanophile, and all-around nerd. Growing up copying art from game manuals, and years later, eventually gaining a degree in animation, Jed now illustrates children’s books, and dreams up crazy projects like Ukiyo-e Heroes.

Ukiyo culture was once a thriving scene for Japan’s woodblock printmakers, whose works depicted monsters, villains, and heroes – and themes ranging from satire, romance and drama. This creative style and tradition was passed down through the centuries, to now be readily identifiable in Japan’s video game industry. The Ukiyo-e Heroes features Jed Henry’s favourite game characters and stories styled in the classic Ukiyo way, to celebrate this well-loved industry.
