PROPERTY FROM A PRIVATE COLLECTION, LONDON
TOBEY MAGUIRE: How many package paintings did you do the first time around?
KAWS: About 40. Before that I really was just painting over ads. But then when Nigo started giving me commissions, I started doing really different large-scale paintings—like the Kimpsons series.
TOBEY MAGUIRE: Yes, the Kimpsons. And what do you call the other characters?
KAWS: The Kurfs. Which is Smurfs. I like The Simpsons because they are such an instant read. You could be in a different country and go, “D’oh!” and everybody would know exactly what you’re talking about. I thought that was amazing. It’s also such an American cartoon.
