First Day of Summer

Doodle by Takashi Murakami which is on GOOGLE today and it's presenting the First Day of Summer (June 21st). He's a Japanese artist and creator of Kaikai kiki factory, which houses several other Japanese artists:

- Chiho Aoshima who created "City Glow," which is a video loop display at the MFAH. She also went to the artpace art residency in San Antonio.

-Aya Takano and

-Chinatsu Ban who installed two elephants with underpants in NYC in 2005.

I have one book of Murakami's artwork in my library: Takashi Murakami: The Meaning of the Nonsense of the Meaning. It is out-of-print so If you are interested in his work the book titled Murakami is quite good.

My first day of summer has consisted of a short walk in the Heights
