Sega Europe has joined forces with the UK's leading fine art publisher to create 'Sonic 25', a collection of 25 original pieces which pay tribute to Sonic the Hedgehog.
Sonic 25 sees a series of Washington Green artists - including Dan Lane, Paul Kenton, Frédéric Daty, Louis Sidoli, Stuart McAlpine Miller, Robert Oxley, Craig Davison, Keith Maiden and Nic Joly - re-imagine Sonic in their own unique style across a wide range of mediums.
Here's what Jason Rice, Director of Brand Licensing at Sega Europe, had to say:
This collaboration is a fitting finale to our year-long celebration of Sonic's 25th Anniversary. We wanted to create something truly unique to give fans and collectors the chance to view Sonic in a way never seen before. These incredibly talented artists along with the whole team at Washington Green have been a joy to work with. There is huge excitement and anticipation here at Sega at the prospect of revealing these stunning pieces of work to the world. We couldn't be more proud!
'Sonic 25' signed limited edition pieces will be available across Washington Green's network of 34 Castle Fine Art galleries in the UK from Friday 2nd December 2016. Each of these limited editions comes with a certificate of authenticity, co-signed by the artist and the one and only Naoto Ohshima - one of the creators of the Sonic series.
If you'd like to have a look at the art, the Sonic 25 exhibition will open at Castle Fine Art, South Molton Street from Friday 2nd December.
It should cost $300. That would be some GENIUS pricing right there ...for sure.
Looks really good! Glad to see Sonic art that isn't fan art (or characters)
That's kinda cool.
Meh. How is this Nintendo?
Oh My, the first one is amazing!!!
The ones that are shown here are awesome!
Wow! These look awesome!

@Damo How much would it cost for NL's very own @AlexOlney to go and make a video touring the exhibit? As a reader from the other side of the pond, with no way to visit this Museum, I and many others would greatly appreciate it.
@Fbigabig Because Sonic games are on Nintendo consoles.
Nice to see there's still love for the blue blur.
Awhile back, some dude tried to tell me there's no such thing as good Sonic fanart. I strongly disagree.
@RainbowGazelle Not "Sonic Mania" though...
How much do you think these will cost?
Are they being auctioned?
