If I Don't Do Nothin', I'ma Ball

I think I might have found my second favorite artist:

Brian Donnelly, who is known professionally as KAWS, is an artist who doesn't think outside the box-he simply recreates it. He is known for designing Kanye West's "808's and Heartbreaks" album cover and album art. He also designed Clipse's "Till' the Casket Drops" album cover. Essentially, he takes popular cartoons or figures and puts his signature face on them (pictured above). However, his take on whatever he is creating is more refreshing in that he brightens and sharpens the colors and makes it seem like cartoons are brought into reality. I want his art.
