Japanese woodblock prints (Ukiyo-e and Shin Hanga) just might be my new favorite way to blow money. Check out these prints I just acquired by Hasui and Kuniyoshi. Beautiful stuff! I'm especially keen on Kuniyoshi's prints since they are often used as tattoo designs. You can click on the images below to view a larger image.

Hasui's "Miyajima Shrine in Snow"

Kuniyoshi's "Hayata Hironao Kills A Nue" (from the "800 Hero's Of Our Country's Suikoden" Series).

Want to learn more about Ukiyo-e? Check out this link.

Got some work done on my back yesterday, will post pics in a few days.
