City Hunter, 88Graph #1 / Tsukasa Hojo
This art print is from the illustration for a poster attached in ‘Weekly Shonen Jump (Special Edition)’ published in 1997.
This art print series was created for the “Cat’s♥Eye 40th Anniversary Original Art Exhibition - And to City Hunter” exhibit held in Tokyo in May 2022.
Each print has 380 editions (regular edition: 200, international edition: 180), all signed by Tsukasa Hojo himself.
The international editions are developed in mixed media, using both giclée (water-based pigments) and UV printers (UV curing ink) for an exquisite expression of color and texture.
The art prints have the same image size as the original pieces.
Comments from Tsukasa Hojo
When I was working on these manga series, for my color pages, I was told to avoid colors with a purple tinge or blue and pinks that were close to purple because those shades were hard to print in the magazines. But I would use them anyway.
At the time, available printing technologies could not convey some of my unique colors. Now, 40 years later, advancements in printing mean colors and shades from the original can be replicated. These art prints carry the colors that I used precisely, and even the color of the paper is almost identical to the original; it is hard to tell the art print from the original at a glance.
I am delighted that these quality art prints can find their way to you.
