East meets West

Aside from retro everything, I also love Japanese woodblock prints. I have to think that these would be considered retro in Japan as they are pretty old. The illustrative style is much different than that of the west. Here you not only see the different cultures, but the contrast of style. The two B-52’s flying overhead help to set this piece to a specific time period. I just started discovering munnys when I created this painting, so I decided to include them in the waitress’s kimono. The lizard in the cup simply states “This is not your typical American meal”. zen1 All in all, one of my more successful canvas paintings.
