Video: Kanye West is a bear....good morning!

First a Muppet now a Bear. At this rate Kanye's about to fill the shoes Mr. Rogers left in the heart of all children. In any case the latest video from his album "Graduation" features a fantastic animation by Takashi Murakami, an artist often compared to Andy Warhol for his use of color and his understanding of pop culture. Over the years Murakami has gained notoriety for his bold anime-looking illustrations and a collaboration done with Louis Vuitton. At this point it's become pretty much a standard for Kanye to bring us the best when it comes to art, fashion and design. I wonder what's next on his plate...a clothing line called "Pastelle"? Maybe.
