This past summer I got to hang out with artist Brian Donnelly, better known as KAWS at both his Williamsburg studio as well as in a top-secret location where his float for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was being inflated for the first time. If you pick up a copy of the Nov 2012 issue of WSJ you can read his profile as well as check out a couple of my photos as well.
Or, if the very thought of heading out the door to actually physically pick something up fills you with unspeakable dread, you can instead check out the online link instead here: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204425904578072631528135710.html?mod=WSJ_Magazine_LEFTSecondStories and you have to click on the video link too to check out the fun time-lapse I shot that shows the float being inflated and then deflated: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204425904578072631528135710.html?mod=WSJ_Magazine_LEFTSecondStories#articleTabs%3Dvideo

The character that is pictured here is called ‘Companion’ and you can catch him live during the Macy’s Day Parade if you are in NYC over Thanksgiving.
