Favorite KAWS Piece

Dissected KAWS Companion

KAWS is perhaps my favorite artist out there right now, I knew of his work, he designed Kanyes 808’s and Heartbreaks album artwork, but I didn’t know who had designed it. Then I stumbled upon his instagram account and finally knew who he was, I was fascinated by his artwork, especially his vinyl figures and how he let others have a piece of his work whether it be through these “toys” or the clothing he designed. Dissected companion (in black) is my favorite work of his. I like how it shows the outside half of his body, all blacked out, the you get to the inside, a colorful core with blues, yellows, pinks and greens.I also like it because Companion sort of looks like Mickey Mouse in a way, and some of KAWS work is based from things he like as a kid, like spongebob, the smerfs, the simpsons etc.

Why I Like To Shoot with Film

Kodak Film

Shooting in film is fun, it was used before all of the DSLRs were introduced. Taking your film and loading it, into your camera, is something that I like, I do not know why but I do. Then you have the number of exposures you have, or the number of pictures you can take, 24 or 36 are the pretty common ones for Kodak. When taking your pictures you have to be careful, you only have a certain amount shots you can take. Just going around with your camera photographing is great, and you never know how it will come out until you get it developed and that is the fun part. You can take pictures and pictures, go through film rolls before getting them developed, once you do it is amazing to see what your pictures came out like, not remembering that you took that one picture. It’s just really fun.

Canon Sure Shot Owl

 

The canon sure shot owl, a 35mm film camera that was released in 1997. It is a great point and shot camera you can carry around, take out and take your picture quickly. It has a fully automatic 35mm camera lens, built in flash, with red-eye reduction. A fairly cheap camera you can purchase on eBay from around 8-20 dollars shipped. I recently purchased one myself and love it.
