There were a number of exhibitors at the recent Birmingham MCM Comic-Con that piqued my interest, but one stand stood out with its eye-catching output.
Canime is a UK-based independent design and print business that specialises in anime canvas art. The cooler-than-cool canvases showcase iconic characters from your favourite anime properties, and anime-ignorant pop culture fans can pick up wall art inspired by everything from Ghibli to ‘Breaking Bad’ and all the way back to Middle Earth.
The supremely kind folks at Canime were kind enough to send me a Cowboy Bebop canvas, featuring the character Spike from the 1998 anime series. The pictures below don’t do justice what is a real knockout piece, the shadowy smoking outline giving off a decidedly noir-esque vibe despite the bold blue background making it as Pop Art colourful as it is cool.
It’s available here for £30, and you can also get your hands on the rest of the Cowboy Bebop gang from the Canime site. Have a browse and start making major makeover plans – your walls need never be boring again!
