Here’s what Erik has to say about the above painting:
“Megane: Kintaro’s Eyeglasses, that’s pronounced Meh-gah-neh, which is the word prominently spelled in reverse in the upper left-hand corner of the windows, and means eyeglasses. The cartoony head beside the big word is Kintaro– Golden Taro or Golden Boy– a folk legend who is the mascot for “Megane Do-rah-gu* (Megane Drugs Incorporated).
Please note this is a work-in-progress. Most of the details are in place, but it needs a lot of tweaking to give the plane of reflective mirror-glass the sheen that was the goal when I began this painting. “
