Stripes painted to perfection, she stood outside
the entrance of the Hawai‘i Institute of Hair Design,
posing for photos and chatting with passersby.
The “tiger” was a model, one of airbrush artist Chad
Morisato’s canvases created for the Feb. 6 First Friday.
Morisato, who painted a total of three models that night, worked
with a Valentine’s theme as he adorned one model with roses
and another model in blue, white, and black.
It was fun,” he said in a telephone interview. “Nice
crowd, the models seemed to have a great time. The crowd seems
to be growing and growing!”
This is Morisato’s fourth time painting models live for
the First Friday event, and he plans to continue, adding “we’re
always looking for models!”
