Jet Set Radio is an official limited edition print drawn by artist Roman van der Haven based on the classic, graffiti art focused SEGA video game Jet Set Radio™. Roman van der Haven made this print under direction of Cook & Becker and SEGA using the original Jet Set Radio designs, logo's etc. from the SEGA archives as inspiration.
When you purchase this Certified Art Giclee unframed, the paper size is 24 x 36" or 60 x 90 cm with a small white border so that it fits affordable standard frames available anywhere in the world. For the Dibond mounted finish we trim the white edges so the final size of the artwork is 22 x 34" / 55 x 85 cm.
About this project
Cook & Becker asked some of the hottest artists and designers working in entertainment and video games today if they wanted to draw a print of their favorite retro SEGA video games. The idea was to create a series of beautiful prints that would capture the heart of these classic brands and what they meant for the artists and people playing and growing up with them.
Artist Roman van der Haven says about his Jet Set Radio artwork: "Jet Set Radio is maybe my most favorite game and to be able to make a new piece under SEGA's flag was one of my dreams come true. Jet Set Radio is such a rich world, full of character. We decided to go with the current design, a clear and iconic image of Beat running for the cops. I had to be respectful to the source material but also to add my own, unique style to it. Working with SEGA's creatives on the composition and style was an interesting experience as well."
Going forward Cook & Becker will work with SEGA to periodically release new giclee prints from a variety of SEGA games.
