Ok I was surfing the internet for fun art and I found this artist named Mark Atomos Pilon. After checking out his art and bio - I thought what a cool guy. His influence in 50s & 60s art whether it be space age to comic style is quite evident in his style. It's a
a very fun and playful approach to an old style which continues to live on. So here's to you Mark! Keep rockin' that art! Perhaps he'll come to NYC and show his work. If so then I'm totally there...
To see more cool stuff go to his website: "http://cycloptic.com/atomos/Paintings.html">http://cycloptic.com/atomos/Paintings.html

Ok, so cuteness doesn't neccessarily have to be objects, it could also be flims as well. I just remembered this movie I saw awhile back called Valentin. This is such a great heartfelt Spanish film which I highly recommend. I'd tell you more about it but I rather not because you should judge it for yourself. I can tell you the little boy in this movie is so cute and you'll literally fall in love with him. That's all I'll say about it. So go rent it on Netflix or your local Blockbuster and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Hey everybody! I'm back on my blog. I've been away for a few plus I had to rename my blog because silly me spelled the word Kawaii wrong. (Somebody pointed it out to me) So now it's So Kawaiii! - which seems more appropiate. I'll try to add new stuff as much as I can.
If your new to my site please note that all my posts below were transferred over from my old blog. So as you read on you'll notice the dates may be off on certain topics.
That's all folks!

Kanye West's new Graduation CD drops on Sept 11 and I'm diggin' the cover artwork. Actually eversince his debut CD College Drop Out, I thought his mascot/trademark "bear" on the cover was a very cool visual as opposed to some other hip-hop cd covers out there. I mean has anyone seen any cute hip-hop cd covers??? Anyone??? Bueller??
Anyways the point of my little blog story is that everytime I saw this new cover art I kept thinking - "this looks a lot like a Murakami design" and well guess what? I was right. And now your like what the heck is she talking about? Who the heck is Murakami??? Do I like care??? Of course you care because if your reading my blog then you appreciate learning about cute and funky design.
Ok you ready to learn? This might be a jeopardy question someday you know. This artists full name is Takashi Murakami and he is a native of Japan. But I guess you could have guessed that from reading his name. hee. He's quite famous all over the world for his fun innovative modern/pop design in all different mediums. His works range from paintings, illustration design to scultpure. Many big named fashion designers such as Louis Vuitton have even collaborated with him on special unique limited edition handbags etc. (which I love but can't afford - so sad!)
Now this Kanye West CD cover is a new type of collaboration for Murakami and perhaps it will be a start to even more down the road. So I hope you enjoy and appreciate this fun design as much as I do....
PS. Kayne you should really read my blog because I share your love of japanese pop culture and design. Keep the dream alive!
To learn more about Murakami go here:
The link below is his art production company which also holds other artists with a similar outlook on contemporary art:

Just wanted to say have a Happy Labor Day Weekend and while your all slaving away at work in the coming week, I'll be chillaxing somewhere sunny. I'll try to post some cuteness for you to enjoy if I get a chance. However for now please enjoy my own illustration of cuteness. Yes I made it - I got me some mad skillz! hee.
Peace and love,
If your a Tokidoki fan like me then you'll want to get your hands on these super cute and funky ipod cases. They only carry cases for the 30 gig video, Mini, Nano and Shuffle. Unfortunately if you have a 60 gig like me then your out of luck. I'm so sad right now...However I'm sure they will have one for me soon enough.
Check it out boys and girls!
Oh yeaaaah! Could this be any cooler. Sure it's nothing new since I've already seen some artists use this guitar like Courtney Love but if I had it up on stage I'd look totally cooler then her for sure. Oh wait I already look totally cooler then her - I mean have you seen her lately! Hay dios mio! Anyways I can rock it! So stay tuned for my new gig posting! Now hold up, isn't Christmas right around the corner, hmm I wonder what Santa will bring me.
Ok Peace out!
Ok I absocutely love this watch! It's so precious just like a little fluffy kitty who looks at you with its sweet eyes and says MEOW, MEOW! (umm kind of like the kitty on that watch, hee) This watch is from the Gwen Stefani Harajuku Lovers line of fun clothing and accessories. I don't know about you, but I totally dig her stuff. It's super Kawaii! Now it doesn't matter if your young or old (in my case old but who's counting and so what? age is nothing but a number!) We all have a little kid in each of us who love Kawaiilicious things (hey I think I just invented a new word "Kawaiilicious" - sweet!). So go get your own Harajuku Watch - do it, do it, do it #%@....I kid.
To find one at a Kuwailicious store near you try here:
If anyone is familiar with the Kid Robot Store then you know what kind of toys they sell there. The funky Japanese import kind, among others. However this one toy caught my eye because of it's combination of cuteness/scary factor that typically you wouldn't want your kid to snuggle and love. But you just can't help it because despite the bloodiness that drips from it's jaws and claws, it's still cute (at least to me) The artist who created this is known as Mori Chakku. He's a native of Sakai, Osaka, Japan.
His "...design is an antithesis to the excessively cute products produced by Disney, Sanrio's Hello Kitty, and other companies. Mori Chack believes that humans and animals are incompatible, and an animal is wild by nature. This is expressed most pronouncedly by the Gloomy Bear, which is often shown blood stained and striking humans. ..."
It's basically become a collectable and many have become obsessed with this form of art as I like to call it because it is a form of art - Urban Vinyl Art. And again the ideas stem from Japan and other parts of Asia....It's quite the phenominom overseas as well as here. There are so many kinds of urban vinyl characters out there so check it out people and start lovin' the Vinyl!

Another day of cuteness and this time it's a cute doggie. Growing up I had an American Eskimo (may she rest in peace) and she was the best pet I ever had. Of course I still miss her and everytime I see an image or video of an Amercian Eskimo it just brings a smile to my face. So my wittle poochie, poochie this one's for you! Arf!
So I'm sitting at my desk and I thought let's google puppies, hello kitty, tokidoki etc. Yes, aside from my professional job in the creative industry I sometimes enjoy some downtime surfing the net to find cute things. Actually some coworkers of mine partake in the same enjoyment because frankly sometimes you need a dose of cuteness to get through the day.
Let me share this bit of information I found on my search which is so adorable indeed. It's AMIGURUMI!! What is it?? Well it's a japanese craft made up of cute crochet characters. If you know how to crochet then why not try it and start building your own little village of characters. I guess this craft has been around for some time and eventhough the U.S. might have something similar, the Japanese version is quite Kuwai!. I love Japan! They always come up with the cutest and coolest ideas for just about everything.
Here's some links to share if your curious to learn more about it:
Today is my first blog day - YAY! I did it. I mean everyone else is doing it so why not me, right? This blog space will just be me rambling on about cute things I find on the web or just anywhere for that matter. Take in mind my blog does mean cute in Japanese. Everybody likes cute things, don't you? I swear I'm the silliest girl in the world! Yes I'm 33 years old - so what of it!
