It seems there is no stopping the momentum of graffiti writer turned contemporary artist http://freshnessmag.com/tag/brian-donnelly/”>Brian Donnelly, commonly known by his alias http://kawsone.com/”>KAWS. Furthermore, his Companion is a lovable character which lends itself to almost any environment, whether it be a vinyl figure, t-shirt graphic, http://freshnessmag.com/2012/03/14/originalfake-companion-candles/”>candle, or as a large-scale http://freshnessmag.com/2010/12/20/kaws-16-foot-companion-new-home-at-the-aldrich-contemporary-museum/”>16-foot figure. In a recent interview with http://nytimes.com/2012/05/18/arts/design/a-kaws-character-is-headed-up-in-the-air.html?pagewanted=1&_r=2″>New York Times, Donnelly gave a sneak preview of what to expect in the upcoming http://macys.com/campaign/parade/history.jsp” target=”_blank”>Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Just two years prior, http://freshnessmag.com/2010/09/02/takashi-murakami-kaikai-kiki-to-join-macys-thanksgiving-day-parade/”>Takashi Murakami, a good friend of Donnelly, received an invitation to partake in the festive event. As this sketch shows, the Companion will no doubt look awesome at the parade.
