Hello Kitty Monument: Additional Work (2012 – 2020)

Media include digital and traditional drawing, printmaking, and photography. I created Hello Kitty Monument in response to the mind boggling, worldwide popularity of the Hello Kitty brand. Through the invention of a Mount Rushmore-type monument and ersatz historical documentation, I address cute consumer culture, museum sponsorship, and even high-tech housing markets.
