    I love this picture. The faces tell a story about the life they've led. It's big 56 in tall and 38 in wide. It's oil on canvas and the frame looks homemade.

      To me this looks awesome and I get a feeling it is a dark version of Grant's " American Gothic "

      Another Watanabe worked with Dave Cockrum, Joe Sinnott : Irv Watanabe aka ITOSHI IRVING “IRV” WATANABE
      February 10, 1919, Maui, Hawaii – January 1993, Hawaii

      I'm with Caperkid's (dark version of Grant's "American Gothic").... I do love this art piece, thanks for sharing!!

      Just a thought .... Earl Watanabe might have been a pseudonym used by ITOSHI IRVING “IRV” WATANABE.
    9. TubeAmp TubeAmp, 3 years ago
      There are a few Watanabes in Hawaii... (everyone in Honolulu thinks of Watanabe Florists when they hear the name).

      ..... and Constructions. I think I have seen five Earl Watanabe's.
    11. vetraio50 vetraio50, 3 years ago
      The impression I have is that Irv Watanabe was mainly a letterer for Marvel .... perhaps his talents as an illustrator were eclipsed by Dave Cockrum .... lettering paid the bills ???

      Inside American Gothic ???

      The one I posted says in a profile that he went to California art school, (so the painting would have been painted when he was 21) but he went into home design and became a builder/construction company owner. So I think it may be multiple accounts of the same person, just moving down the island chain.

      Watanabe is a persistent name at Marvel comics too : Wraith .... Yuri Watanabe.

      With the popularity of Manga, I’m not surprised.
