kozyndan Oh man. My friend's #vintage #kappa dolls are amazing. Mischievous homunculi! Also, very strangely, the little banner the kappa in the back is holding reads, in English, "Republicans!". So weird. #doll #toy #Japan #japanese #folklore 1d

kozyndan There are TOO many fun shots from this shoot (I have posted them elsewhere - Facebook, and Flickr particularly), but will try to limit the quantity I put up here. Here is another one from this weekend's #pool shoot with @wrenees here in Los Angeles. #underwater #happyface #prozacnation Suit @blackmilkclothing @ironeyeretna 1w

kozyndan Refusing to let go of #summer for now. Getting help in this with good, down to earth folks - thanks to @jasoncmacdonald and @wrenees for coming out to execute this project we have discussed doing for ages. Came out pretty well! #underwater #happyface #pool #EagleRock #swim @blackmilkclothing (also thanks to @superwoman_native for the use of the pool and @luniebird1997 for her ample breath!) 1w

kozyndan #kozyndan's #spiritanimal! @sarahchoart colored in a few of the weirdo paper animal sculpture thingies @kozykitchens made for our #GoingPostal2014 subscribers in July. THIS is what represents us??? Anyway - we mailed each subscriber uncut sheets with instructions on how to cut and fold them after coloring to make their paper sculptures. Craft time! 2w

kozyndan Back when we were in Hawaii in June we painted #waves on a lot of #postcards for #GoingPostal2014 subscribers. I miss the warm waves of the islands... 2w

kozyndan Many sheets of paper painted on, and then the bunny sketch was printed on top when they were dry. After this I added accents with white paint pen, white acrylic, and marker, and every #bunny was cut out. Productive studio day with our trusty assistant @sarahchoart's help! #trippy #rabbits 2w

kozyndan I saw this #bunny on the internet and decided to draw it. I am a sucker for when animals anthropomorphize by sitting in odd positions. #sketch #doodle #ink #rabbit 2w

kozyndan I love it when I am under the water and someone discovers me down there who totally GETS the joy of being #underwater. Pictures are snapped and we surface and discussions if #mermaid magic and Esther Williams erupt! From @dublab's Bubble Up party in Ojai last weekend. 3w

kozyndan It was supposed to be our assistant @sarahchoart's first day back in the studio with us since we got back from Tonga, but we decided to have a beach day instead, and went to my favorite beach in LA, El Matador. #hooky #California #summer #beach #bu #malibu #Elmatador #bikinibabes #yogabodies 3w

kozyndan We had such a fun time painting on top of the portrait of us shot by @allanamato for his upcoming @templeofartdoc project. He has done this with dozens of artists now and will be documenting our lives and examining the creative process along the way, with a resulting book, gallery exhibition and feature length documentary to follow. For me it's exciting in particular because we included with several artists who were my art heroes when I was study illustration at university. #wip 3w

kozyndan Action from the @dublab Bubble Up party this past weekend in Ojai. #underwater tunes = #underwater fun! 3w

kozyndan Fun times last weekend in Ojai for @dublab's Bubble Up pool party experiment. It almost went horribly awry when, as we were setting up the sound system the Ventura County health department showed up with sheriff's and shut the Inn's pool down as it had not met public pool safety standards and gotten a permit. Luckily the Hummingbird Inn down the road happily took us in and we transported the whole party on the fly to their #pool and had a great day! #California#underwater #summer 3w

kozyndan Lots of silly/cute/odd stuff fell out of our heads onto my sketchbook page while preparing to make our art for "Hello! Exploring the Supercute World of Hello Kitty" at the Japanese American National Museum. Some of it just involved our daily routine. Hello Kitty as our substitute protagonist - off to #yoga class! It's great how easily she slips into any role. #HelloKitty #HelloKittyJANM #pose #warrior #fitness #doodle #kozyndan 1mon
  •   kozyndan @caseytanigawa no no you should do it! 1mon
  •   caseytanigawa Moving to L.A. soon, this is a definite plus. I'm looking forward to this ! 1mon
  •   kozyndan @caseytanigawa you are? Awesome!! 1mon
  •   caseytanigawa @kozyndan yep in California I've only spent long periods of time in SF and Sacramento (and unfortunately Lodi/Stockton) so I'm looking forward to seeing all the creative/weird/ethnic/tasty bits of warmer Lalaland. I think I'll really love it or really hate it. 1mon
  •   kozyndan @caseytanigawa what prompted this move to LA? 1mon
  •   caseytanigawa My boyfriend works for Tesla and he got a regional position for California. I just moved back to Hawaii from Portland but I like new places. 1mon
  •   caseytanigawa @bastatas this is what you started lol. Scroll to top 1mon
  •   bastatas @caseytanigawa I entertained more people with the truth last night. Haha But your background stories are definitely better than the real stuff. I'm not sure which of your characters I like the most. Pochacco and My Melody made me laugh out loud, though! Please draw them! 1mon
