Comments from Kazuhiro Ochi
I newly drew this illustration for the art exhibition.
It was created based on the concept of returning to the starting point 20 years after I started drawing illustrations for Mazinger Z DVD-box.

On the Art Prints, from EDITION88
As the composition has a sense of depth with multiple characters, we wanted to express this three-dimensional effect efficiently in the art print.
Initially, by printing white ink on the main characters to create a base, we created the effect that the printed surface looks slightly raised, making it look realistic.
In addition, by applying a glossy sheen to the eyes of Mazinger Z and the shield on a helmet, there's an effect to glow for a moment depending on the angle from which they are viewed, successfully expressing the impact of the artwork.
These art prints are made on handmade washi paper made from bamboo and hardwood. Washi is a traditional Japanese paper and the washi we used is particularly produced for EDITION88 in cooperation with a washi studio in Tokushima. It is characterized by the soft texture unique to handmade washi, and when ink is applied to it, it looks three-dimensional. We would be very happy if you could see the product in person.
This washi is designed with hand-torn edges, that is why we chose float framing so that this can be seen.
