The World of Masayuki Miyata

14 Aug

“Born in Tokyo in 1926, Masayuki Miyata was a gracious, modest, gentleman of exceptional talent. Receiving no formal art training, his natural artistic ability led him into employment as a drafting technician and later as a designer of theatrical posters for the Ernie Pyle Theater in postwar Japan.”

From “The World of Masayuki Miyata“.

His work is my current source of inspiration.

How cool it is here –
A cresent moon faintly hovers
Over Mount Saguro.
