Description NaniDad, head of the NaniBird family, comes wearing a blue, Japanese patterned jinbe, wooden geta and traditional Japanese hair style, chonmage. This anxious Dad is based on my free papertoy NaniBird, more of which can be seen at: www.nanibird.com. Our nervous dad is saying 'doshite' in Japanese or 'Why'? A less polite interpretation could be read as'WTF?!?!'. Maybe he's feeling a little ambivalent about his good fortune.
Josh McKible, Tokyo Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement Illustrator, currently hiding out in Japan. Went to college a painter, came out doing sculpture. Went to school again, came out hanging drywall. From there, I somehow went from drawing temporary tattoos for a novelty company to 8 years of art directing gigs at various magazines. Luckily, I've since come to my senses and I'm now back to drawing for a living again. You can see my illustration work at: http://www.mckibillo.com
Now I've started playing around with some of the materials I'm finding here in Japan and in the process I constantly find myself asking "nani?" or "what" in Japanese.
