The digital art dealer Cook & Becker is back again with a freshly released batch of prints for their Sega Collection. The newest prints for Sonic the Hedgehog and Virtua Fighter join assorted artwork available includes pieces based on Streets of Rage, Shenmue, Shinobi, Phantasy Star, Golden Axe, and Jet Set Radio.
The new Sonic the Hedgehog print is by Paul Veer, best known for his pixel art for the indie studio Vlambeer (Super Crate Box, Ridiculous Fishing, and Nuclear Throne). Veer worked on the print with Team Sonic to come up with something representative of the blue blur. Talking about his design he said, "The Sonic franchise as a whole has always had a huge influence on my personal art style, so getting to do an official print with Sega was an honor and a dream come true. With that in mind, I wanted to do the entire series justice by including lots of characters from past and present Sonic games."
Gerald Peral worked on the prints for Virtua Fighter, which come in red and blue variants. He also created the print for Golden Axe that depicts the characters in a classic, pulp style.
John Sweeny's print for Shenmue 3 has been so commercially successful, with all of the revenue going toward creating the third installment in the game series, that he's being made into an in-game character. A few of those prints are still available, but will likely be sold out shortly.
On top of all that, Cook & Becker have announced that they will be receiving a collection of Bloodborne and The Order: 1888 artwork in time for Halloween. No word on exactly when we might expect to see these prints, but it is possible to get early access or reserve prints by contacting the dealer via their site.
