Insane...I just got back on DA after a long hiatus. I always loved your work but never put two and two together when I purchased this box set two years ago. I knew it looked familiar. Doesn’t appear that you’re on this thing anymore, but that box set is pretty much the grail of my chambara collection

Cool stuff. Criterion always has superior extras. Is Zatoichi your favorite criterion tititle?

hehe... I don't play favorites.

Ronald, you're the right man for the job. I'm glad they had the vision for it.

So stinking awesome.
My hats off to criterion for finding the perfect artist for this collection.
Did you actually watch all of the films in the collection as research for the art?
D-pi's avatar
Thanks! I didn't have to watch them, I'm a huge fan already, but I did. What a fun job.

I have only seen the super weird Takeshi kitano iteration which I'm sure doesn't quite count, so I might have to just save up for this set.
Can you recommend a top three to start off with?
D-pi's avatar
hmmm... start at the beginning. First three are dope.
Yeah, Beat Takeshi's Zatoichi is a funny take on it but yeah, Shintaro Katsu IS Zatoichi.
