At the end of last year I went to my dear friend and amazing artist Eiichi “Scart” Miyamoto’s house for a spectacular dinner and drinking session.
(see my portrait of Eiichi taken some years ago HERE)
Always an inspiring and interesting thing to do as Eiichi and his wife are the kind of people who make you at once glad to be alive and ashamed for being so god damn lazy as they are both amazing artists who produce epic amounts of work, even their house is a work of art, I never tire of going there as it is rammed full to bursting with all kinds of amazing art, stereo equipment and miscellaneous interesting stuff plus they are superb cooks and always have enough alcohol on hand to wipe out a small army battalion.
After much eating and drinking this year Eiichi announced he was going to take my portrait with some expired 8×10 Ektachrome using some crazy 178mm Aero Ectar lens from 1945………
I posted this photo of him setting up at the time:-
The results as you can see are fucking awesome!!
