A Tribute to the Past (Ishinomori’s Legend of Zelda)

Digital comics illustration series, 2019

One thing that helps inspire me in the studio is going back to my favorite media from childhood. I’m a big fan of the Legend of Zelda series and can’t remember how many times I read through the graphic novel adaptation of A Link to the Past by Shotaro Ishinomori when I was young. For years after its release by Nintendo Power, it was out of print. (It’s back as of 2015.) I still have my original copy, and I recently decided to choose some of my favorite pages to recreate digitally in Ishinomori’s original watercolor style.
