I was one of 80 artists in the world picked to participate in the big Hello Kitty 35th Anniversary Art Show! I found this big old door in my neighborhood and painted it up, but Sanrio rejected my piece saying it was too "violent and disturbing". Haha! Oh yea, and Hello Kitty doesn't have a mouth, either.
So I rocked a second piece for them in two hours...no sketching, pre-planning or penciling...just straight ink and paint on board. Booyah. Fuck it, she still has samurai swords and nunchucks.
The show takes place tomorrow night at Royal/T on 8910 Washington Blvd, Culver City, CA, 90232. Artist bios/pics at:
If anyone wants to buy the door, hit me up.
