Honor Fraser held another exhibit for Kaws and his Man’s best friend collection.  Most of it consisting of Snoopy and his popular Spongebob features hidden throughout the paintings.  I was a little disappointed with the last exhibits I attended displaying a lot more statutes and vinyls but Kaws’ line work made up for it.  Words can not describe how perfect each line, each curve flows in every painting on top of his shadow work that is a just as defined.  We went into a few other random museums but had to leave from giggling at the nude art or because Tamara was touching the exhibits.  Then the famous question popped up ‘are you hungry?’ which then lead into one of the most asked questions of this generation ‘Where do you want to eat?’.  After a bunch of I don’t cares were exchanged I brought up The Misfit since it was on the way home and on third street, no girl can resist 3rd street.  After stuffing our faces we watched Tamara shop and then I was luckily enough to sit in on a photo shoot she had in the car with herself and Rachelle who was trying to drive.  I miraculously got home alive and was only 20 minutes late for work…

Kaws’ line work is literally perfect, I was that asshole trying to find a flaw in the painting.

Just this month, Kaws tweeted the conclusion of the world famous Original Fake brand.  One of the most sought after companies this decade, mastering almost every aspect in apparel, and of course their very collectible vinyl figures that are going to sky rocket after 2013.  Here’s what he tweeted earlier this month, maybe adding a little bit of a hint for plans in the future?  You be the judge.

“May 2013 marks the seventh year anniversary of OriginalFake, and it is at this time that Medicom Toy and I have chosen to close the shop and company. It’s been an amazing opportunity to work with Medicom Toy on this project as well as working with Masamichi Katayama of Wonder Wall to create the interior of the shop and Konno of Nexus7 who’s incredible talent really added sophistication to the clothing that we produced. I really want to thank the staff in production as well as in our shop. If you ever entered our shop you already know how awesome they are! I would also like to thank all the companies that collaborated with us, your friendship and support has always really meant a lot, and to everyone who has supported OriginalFake,THANK YOU! and I hope to see you all in the next chapter!”  -Kaws
