Today’s hadouken is brought to you by the letter H
I am a fan of fighting game mash ups. Marvel vs. Capcom, SNK vs. Capcom, Street Fighter X Tekken, Mega Man X Street Fighter, and my favorite Blankachu. Blankachu took two things I hold dear from my childhood, Street Fighter and Pokémon. What if someone took two things they hold dear and mashed them together in poster that’s good enough for Cookie Monster? You would have Matt Crane’s awesome Kickstarter project.
Crossing Street Fighter and Sesame Street, the project hopes to raise $1,000 for the creation of 18”X24” posters of this awesome artwork. The project is off to a good start with already raising $732 of the asking $1,000. Matt started the crossing of these two franchises back in 2009 on his deviantART page with the Ernie/Ken crossover. Matt had been doing single character art until this Kickstarter project. The Kickstarter, depending on what you contribute, can net you this great artwork. $20 or more nets you the 18”X24” poster of Super Sesame Street Fighter, plus a digital art sketch book (PDF), and official wallpaper JPEG (1920X1200). $60 or more and you get all the above times four. $100 or more you get an original pencil drawing of the Super Sesame Street Fighter art signed by Matt, the poster, sketch book, and wallpaper. Donations do start at a $1 which will get you the wallpaper sent to you via email. All art, from the wallpaper to the posters, have an estimated ship date of April. There is as of this writing, 21 days left on the kickstarter, more than enough time to fully fund this fantastic fan art.
Matt’s art has been seen on sites such as Kotaku, Destructoid, and Seth killian’s Capcom-unity page. We at TheGamersBlog, are proud to have Matt’s artwork on display as well. The Telly/Zangief cross over is my favorite, I love the eyes. Head over to Matt’s deviantART page to check out the poster art, plus much more of the Super Sesame Street Fighter art. Below is a link to Matt’s Kickstarter project, and help support this remarkable fan art. Rock the Asphalt has never a truer meaning than with this art. Thanks Matt, for sharing this great project with us.
Editor’s note – I know we have some readers that are not in the States; unfortunately the posters are only being shipped within the States due to cost issues. You still can donate the starting price of $1 and receive the JPEG wallpaper. More can be found about this on the Kickstarter’s page.
