In late February Taylor Mckimens, Chang Park, and Jordin Isip took their Parsons Illustration classes to visit internationally renowned artist Misaki Kawai in her studio as she prepared for her upcoming show “Love from Mt. Pom Pom” at the Children’s Museum of the Arts. Misaki’s studio is in a vacated Bank of America on the ground floor of the beautiful Woolworth Building– plenty of room to host the 50+ visitors for a fun and inspirational morning. Thank you to Misaki and Justin for kindly opening up the studio and spending time with us!
Go see Misaki’s show– you can comb an 18 foot long, 11 foot tall fuzzy fuchsia dog with a 2 foot long comb.
“Love from Mt. Pom Pom” was reviewed in the New York Times. Read it here. The exhibit runs from March 14 – June 10, 2012.
