The Japanese craft of kokeshi — limbless, emotionless, wood-carved figurines — is the latest tradition be revived, although here practiced by the English artist Becky Kemp, aka Sketch. She’s applied the tadpole-like treatment to the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs, Andy Warhol, and Frida Kahlo, who’ve never looked more kawaii.
