Melbourne-based artist Andrew Archer has an affinity for illustrating portraits of famous basketball players as Ukiyo-e Japanese woodblock prints. Archer recently released a new batch of artworks for his ongoing “Edo-Ball” series. The latest illustrations portray Timberwolves’ Karl-Anthony Towns aptly as a wolf pack leader, Dirk Nowitzki as an Ikiryō or a spirit that haunts people, Kevin Durant as The Durantula, and more NBA-inspired pieces.

Check out “Edo-Ball Season 2” above and visit Andrew Archer’s official website to view more projects.
