Acquisitions

I have recently acquired these beauties from Samurai Jack. The internet can be a magical place sometimes...

From Jack and the Hunters.

From Jack and the Woolies.

The precision with which these were painted is stunning. They are definitely hand done, but with an almost machine-like accuracy and control. Amazing to see in person! Btw, if anyone knows whether it was Scott Wills or Jenny Gase-Baker that did them, I'd love to know!

EDIT: The top was likely done overseas and the bottom one was done by Jenny herself! Thanks to Chris and Jenny for confirming!

EDIT EDIT: See post above for Scott's clarification.
