Google keeps coming out with inventive daily images for their logos, but my favorite by far has got to be these Takashi Murakami Google doodles.

If you're unfamiliar with Takashi Murakami's work, just think of him as this generation's Andy Warhol. He single-handedly pioneered his own visual style known as "Superflat," and his pieces have served as inspiration for high-fashion couture companies such as Louis Vuitton. He even managed to take over the Palace of Versailles in France in 2010 to show off his sculptures in over 15 of the palace's rooms. And now, with these Takashi Murakami Google Doodles, Murakami is solidifying his legendary status as he's conquered both the physical and digital worlds with his vibrant idiosyncratic art.
