Who’s your BFF?

I love the name. BFF. Kaws you’re such a legend for coming up with such a simple name for a doll. If you think about it, everyone has and needs a BFF in life. And when you look at its first from, a stuffed toy, you just want to cuddle it forever. I missed the release of the pink BFF companion. Well, I didn’t miss it. The website crashed a million times and suddenly they were sold out..

I tried to find it online but I think no one wanted to sell theirs (I don’t blame them). I would never sell it if I’d copped it. So the closest I can get to “having” a Kaws BFF pink myself is to print it. And hurray I can draw a bit so I decided to illustrate the Kaws BFF as the Kaws Companion “Passing Through”. Since I wanted to add a bit of me, I placed his butt on a Dedication Flower basketball.

“Everyone has and needs a BFF in life”

I hope that one day I get the chance to buy this piece and install it in our home. I just don’t want to pay a lot and we all know that eventually you do have to pay heaps. I’m lucky my boyfriend likes the same toys and we decide together whether we buy it or not. Usually the answer is “No”… but I know myself..

I appreciate my BFF’s. Usually people would say: “You can’t have more than one best friend”. But since I pushed out a lot of people who didn’t deserve the title friend, I settled with the best. I count them on one hand. These are the people I talk to every day.

I used Adobe draw for the base and saved it to continue in Procreate. Jennet Liaw gave me this tip so I gave it a try. I really look up to her, she is so dope. I follow her because of her mural work and hope to work with her one day! I’m pretty happy about the outcome tho and can’t wait to print it! I might put this piece available as a poster on my bigcartel, What do you think?

One thought on “Who’s your BFF?

  1. Jennet is so awesome. Did you cop her swooshi pin? So dope. Also got her stay humble/hustle hard print she made a few years ago.

    If you would make a poster of this I would def buy it!
