Yoshitomo Nara

Have you ever come across this artist?  I have a notebook with his images on it, which I love. Apart from the image on the front, I love the detail on the pages; there are some with lines and orange borders, some with graph paper and blue borders and some with dots and green borders. I like using it as a sketch book because it already feels like they've got you started. No big white pages to intimidate you here.
These paintings below really make me laugh because they capture so well that sensation of mulish stubbornness we all feel when someone is trying to force us to do something against our will, and which children show so obviously on their faces. I've chosen these pictures in particular because I love the little animal costumes they are wearing. That black cat is priceless.
