Summer Solstice 2011 Google Doodle by Takashi Murakami
Takashi Murakami Provides Google Doodle for First Day of Summer
The Google Doodle for June 21 celebrates the Summer Solstice. The design was created by Takashi Murakami.
Takashi Murakami is best known for his "superflat" style, which draws on imagery from anime, manga, and other visual elements of Japanese pop culture. Takashi Murakami's work walks a smudged line between commercial and "high" art.
Murakami does not limit himself to two dimensions, though... just ask Mr. Pointy.
