Akira is one of the most important anime's released and came out 1988. Widely regarded by critics as one of the greatest animated and science fiction films ever made.
Over the years we have observed many Akira tribute pieces. We decided it was time for us to pay homage to the iconic cyberpunk film in our own style. There are 2 different pieces in this set.
The art in this second piece is a tribute to the highlighted sections from the film. Tetsuo, as he reaches a point of transcendence, Kaneda and his bike in front of Tokyo, Akira blasting the city, parts from the lab and hidden logos from The Clowns, The Capsules, The Police and the Neo4ic. The front and surrounding sleeves utilize technical line work to align with our future-centric style and support the cyberpunk feel from the film.
The back art was produced in collaboration with ACTION CANCEL.
The ink on the front and sleeves utilizes a light-weight reflective ink - that's hard to see until hit with direct led light.
