Meet Our Judges: Aya Kakeda, Illustrator

Welcome to the thirteenth annual 3x3 International Illustration Awards, over the next several weeks we will be introducing you to our international jury of art directors, designers, publishers and illustrators.

Aya Kakeda is an artist, illustrator and sculptor working in multi-media whether it’s brush pen, gouache, silkscreen, embroidery or clay. Aya was born and raised in Tokyo and divides her time between her Brooklyn studios—an illustration studio with five studiomates, a home studio where she does her personal work, and a ceramic studio—and Tokyo. She earned a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design and an MFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts, and is currently teaching at Fashion Institute of Technology in their MFA illustration program. She also performs workshops and lectures at universities and museums.

Her illustration often depicts her imaginary ToTai Island and the creatures that live there. She has been awarded medals for her work from the Society of Illustrators, Society of Illustrators Los Angeles and from 3x3 Magazine. Her clients include Disney*Hyperion Books, Kid Robot, The New Yorker, The New York Times, Nike, Delta, Runners World, Nickelodeon, Noggin TV, PlanSponsor Magazine, Men's Journal, Roger la Borde, Macy’s, HongKong Mega Mall and Time Out Magazine.

In addition to her commercial illustration work, Aya exhibits her work at galleries nationally and internationally as a fine artist. As a performance artist she appears as part of the Moustache Sisters, having performed at the Brooklyn Museum, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The High Museum in Atlanta and a display installation at Macy’s, New York.

The 3x3 International Illustration Awards Show is open to all illustrators in all countries. There is a separate jury for each of our three shows: Professional, Student and Picture Book. For full details download our Call for Entries pdf, to enter go to our homepage.

  1. While most celebs have already slipped into minimal sandal mode, Taylor Swift has recently discovered a love for fat heels, and I don't fault her; a good chunky-heeled shoe is far easier to walk in than a designer stiletto. And, while T-Swift is no stranger to designer replica handbags uk stilettos, I have never gotten the sense that she loves then with quite the same ardor as some of her A-list peers. Yet, she does have those long legs to flaunt. Enter: the chunky-heeled short boot or sandal. Specifically, the black, chunky-heeled short boot or sandal. Because color is too predictable for April. Taylor wore an imposing pair of replica cartier handbags glossy, patent leather Giuseppe Zanotti Lavinia Platform Boots to last weekend's "I Heart Music" Awards. And in case you were wondering, that's a six-inch chunky heel. All the louis vuitton replica better to stomp on Justin Bieber's face with, my dear. Here's Taylor leaving Lady Gaga's 30th b-day party with squad member Lorde in a black suede pair of chunky-heeled Miu Miu Peep Toe Pumps. This post will only continue to provide ample proof that T-Swift is a huge fan of Miuccia Prada.
