This is a post I didn’t get to finish because of my hectic work week. I originally started it on Monday 02/11. Fair warning, this post has a lot of photos.
I am constantly in search of inspiration. Because of my hectic schedule, I fuel my ideas via blogs and websites. This past Saturday I decided to step away from the computer screen and immerse myself in some art. It was the closing weekend of Takashi Murakami Exhibit at the MOCA – Geffen. I was surprised to find a long line of people waiting to buy tickets to get into the museum. I thought “Wow!

The installations pieces were the most captivating. Two of the major pieces encompassed entire rooms. As a fan of anime, I also enjoyed the fusion of anime with high art.
For those who could not attend, here are some photos from The Hundreds blog.
