Since I was just digging through my Hirohiko Araki folder, I thought it might be a good time to bring out this ancient photo of Araki in his house from the 90s, and point out some of my favorite things about it.
it’s the 90s and he has a CRT WIDESCREEN dude takes his movie-watching seriously
FLORALS AND PAISLEYS I’m not sure if it’s his wife decorating or if he likes that but either way it’s kind of wonderful
it’s interesting to see exactly HOW MUCH of a Western decoration aesthetic he’s got going on here
yeah i know people in Japan don’t wear shoes indoors but SUIT WITH SLIPPERS IS ADORABLE
look way the fuck off to the left, there’s a teddy bear just poking in the frame
so yeah 1990s hirohiko araki sitting in his swank as fuck grandma-decorated living room that must have cost a fortune to build in japan smiling and being adorable while wearing fluffy slippers and a teddy bear is on the sofa is one of my favorite “portrait of the author” pictures of all time.

He’s so adorable… and he writes JoJo.
