A few months ago I had the privilege of creating the cover image of a local Nagoya magazine called RAN.
This was to be their art issue so I could do most anything that I wanted.
I always enjoyed the dichotomy that exists in Japan between the very old and the most modern. I wanted my piece have that same push and pull. So I looked for inspiration in the art of Japan’s past with the work of Katsushika Hokusai and the future with Shibuya fashion. And this is what I came up with.
What if Hokusai fell in love with a girl from Shibuya?
The talented Beth Musni was kind to model for me.
