I'm really happy with how this turned out. I wasn't sure if it was going to work out how i wanted it, but i'm happy with the end result.
I watched a really interesting documantry the other week about Hokusai's Great Wave. It pointed out that it incorporated an awful lot of rules of composition that he borrowed from Western art. I figured if i used a simlar composition pattern, it couldn't go too far wrong. So i guess i did cheat in that respect.
It's also part of a series of prints he did that incorporated views of Mount Fuji, so that was a theme i figured sort of fit given the subject matter of the photo on the front of the Young Team album.
Sometimes, as I look at Drew's output, I think "Maybe if I really busted my ass, someday I could be this good."
Other times I think, "Maybe if I really busted my ass, someday I could be this productive."
But to be this good AND this productive? No f'n way. Impossible. Drew must be cheating somehow.
