Ogon Bat Print
Ogon Bat also known as "Golden Bat" is a character from Japan created in 1931 and considered the first Japanese super-hero. He first appeared in a lost art known as "kamishibai," a live traveling show in which a storyteller carried around a small, portable stage and told tales with various cards of illustrations/paintings on the streets of Japan. Ogon Bat went on to become a manga, animated series and even a live action film featuring Sonny Chiba. I've always loved this character and his maniacal laugh, this is my contemporary take on him.
Print includes my newly designed hand stamped embossing to make each print unique and officially by me. The stamp includes my initials and depicts the roman god Janus, god of gateways and time as reflected with a two faced head looking to the past and future. I chose this icon because it's indicative of the variety of work I do and my passion for traditional techniques & technology.
