Here’s a really neat item. A Street Fighter II Blanka Original Art done by Xu Jing Chen. For those who don’t know who Xu Jing Chen is, he basically did the Street Fighter II art in the Asia markets, predominantly shown in the Street Fighter II comics.
So if you’re familiar with him, then this is a really cool piece to own as I can’t imagine another time where you would have the opportunity to purchase an original art card done by Xu Jing Chen.
I couldn’t find any deeper history with Xu Jing Chen, so if anyone has any links they’d like to share or information please leave a comment!
As you can see in the picture, the art and signature was done on a cardboard with a gold outline and silver pellets on the back. I don’t know how else to explain this, but every authentic signature/art done at conventions by celebrities are done on these exact pieces of cardboard. I believe they are only obtained at shows/conventions and are always used by celebrities when doing autographs. I’ve personally owned a few pieces from Yoshitaka Amano that had this exact cardboard used for his signature. As well, if you do a quick search on Yahoo Japan, you’ll see other signatures by celebs done on this type of cardboard. Again, if anyone has any more info on why these cardboards are only used for signatures that would be great.
Unfortunatly, the seller didn’t give any more details on where they got this original Blanka art, but I’m certain if you message the seller more info will be provided.
