Wired 11.11: The Two Faces of Takashi Murakami

Wired 11.11: The Two Faces of Takashi Murakami: “Each creation begins as a sketch in one of numerous pocket-sized notebooks. Full-size drawings are then scanned into the computer. From there, Murakami ‘paints’ his works in Adobe Illustrator, tweaking the composition and cycling through thousands of colors until at last he hands the finished versions off to his assistants. His staff then prints out the work on paper, silk-screens the outline onto canvas, and commences painting. Without this embrace of technology, Murakami says, ‘I could have never produced this many works this efficiently, and the work wouldn’t be as intense.'”
