many of you may remember Takashi Murakami for his out of nowhere revamp of the classic louis vuitton monogram, or for the international museum tour of his paintings and life size figurines  which brought more celebrities to the opening nights of an exhibit than…idk, but it was more than usual. whatever. anyway his work is awesome (despite contestations that his paintings are really done by apprentices and understudies). i remember seeing the show when it came to LA in ’08 and feeling like he’d managed to invent not only a new way of painting, but new colors to paint with as well. good stuff. anyway here’s an animated short he did in the spirit of his work for louis v. those who’ve seen Hayo Miyazaki‘s Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, & Ponyo may feel a little tingle of remembrance watching this.
