MADONNA by David Kawena by davidkawena MADONNA by David Kawena by davidkawena
This picture was taken last year in Miami, while the filming of Madonna's MDNA TOUR took place and I was invited to be a part of the event.

As many of you who's been watching my work over the years know, I've been a long time follower of Madonna and her music, videos and all creative outlooks she takes upon, have always been a source of inspiration to me.

I got to collaborate with Madonna and her team for the MDNA TOUR on a special made election night T-shirt featuring my illustration of Barak Obama (in my gallery) that was inspired by Madonna's MDNA album cover art. Madonna her crew wore the shirt for a number of shows at the final number "Celebration/Give It 2 Me". Later on the shirt was sold exclusivly in venues and arenas where the tour took place, and then it was on the official Madonna Online Store. It was a dream come true and I have met the most amazing people during the shows in NY and Miami, all come together to a true humbling and eye-opening experience I will never forget.

Special thanks goes to Madonna's manager, Guy O & Sara Z for helping me out in making this possible, and of course the one and only, M.

Hope you'll like it.
Have a great day everyone!
DK.

Yes, Guy O and his team contacted me personally to acquire the copyrights for the illustration to be worn on tour by Madonna and the dancers and then to be sold on tour venues and the official Madonna store online.

I was also invited to both shows on MSG in NYC, and the filming of the tour in Miami.

That's awesome! Guy called me twice last year before the tour started so I know how does it feel when you see the hidden number calling.. I was supernervous and so was you, huh? anyway.. your Madonna-artwork is really amazing, keep up the good work!

I really like your photo but I think it would be much better if we cant see her boobs. Her face especially her eyes saw all and her "to the end of the world-pushed" breasts are totally disturbing.

This is a great photo.The camera angle is perfect, she looks strong yet feminine. Very VERY seductive with her lips slightly parted. The idea to have it black and white is perfect, i think that if it was in color there would not have been so much depth in the image. The lighting is superb, over all its an amazing piece! Keep up the great work :squee:
