This past month marks the 30th anniversary of the release of Nintendo’s classic video game, ZELDA.
To celebrate this, Jermaine Rogers has created a new art print entitled, ‘Healing’.
‘I was a teenager back in 1986, and was just about over video games in general…and then Zelda happened. It kind of blew me away. Electronic D&D! Hidden caves, lost treasure, mystical relics!
Years of further anti-social behavior were guaranteed…
To commemorate this amazing milestone, I’m releasing an art print called ‘Healing’.
It pictures the game’s hero, Link…and he’s not doing so well. He’s at a pretty low point, but he’s found a ‘fairy fountain’…and invigorating healing is only moments away. Very literally speaking, ‘Link’ is you and me…’player one’.
There is a parallel in ‘real world’ land: in these lives of ours, we get ‘hurt’ over and over again. Sometimes we get hurt in the same situations, same wounds, and same sore spots, repeatedly. we never learn.
But if we can find them, ‘fairy pools’ are out there…scattered across the terrain of our lives and hidden in the most unlikely places.
You’ve got to keep your eyes open…and when you find them, you’ve got to remember where they are. When you know where your healing is, you can live fearlessly everywhere else.’
The ‘Healing’ mini-print measures 10×8 inches and is printed on pearlescent Opal Stardream rich stock.

Life Blood Variant – The ‘Fountain’ variant of the ‘Healing’ print measures 22×17 inches and is printed on red soft matte-metallic sheen gallery stock. From a signed and numbered edition of only 2 pieces.
WOOD CUT Variant – The ‘Phantom Spheres’ variant of the ‘Healing’ print measures 22×17 inches and is printed on earthy brown stock with a wood-grain pattern surface. An ‘old world’ look. From a signed and numbered edition of only 2 pieces.
Key-line Variant – By popular demand, Jermaine Rogers brings back the ‘key-line’ variant! In the screen-printing process, the color separation containing the primary artwork/illustration for the print is sometimes called the ‘key-line’ separation or screen. When rendered separately, sans all other colors, it offers an undisturbed look at the raw line work of the foundation illustration. Earlier in his career, Jermaine would typically run a small edition of these key-line pieces (sometimes called BxW Proofs). Due to many requests, Jermaine has released a very limited ‘BxW’ edition of ‘Healing’. Measuring 22×17 inches and printed on white gallery stock, this is a limited edition of only 15 pieces.
