Done by a local artist here in Malaysia.
Here's an artist from Japan famous for "Burger Kendama." Her sesame seeds are even 3D. Check Mimoe out here: Instagram
an old trial of fanart for @goenKendama ... way back when i was passionately practicing drawing
As if Ozoras were'nt already cool enough lol. These are dope af.
These are the Meow Stripe damas by Kevin Luong who does interesting illustrations of cats and kendama stuff :3 (PS: he also makes cool kendama pins)
More on the playable end are these by another local artist/musician/web guru here in the Philippines, Pol Escuadro. I'm not sure how he does it but they've got a super matte finish to keep them from being slippery but aren't sticky at all. I wish I had a macro view of them since it almost looks like micro-fine sand on the surface; really different. I don't know if I've ever seen another painted ken you can hit Wing Walker on.
I've always loved these
This was done for the Tokyo Art Beat 2014 in conjunction with KUSA but I don't know the artist.
The artist is @mame_kendamad on instagram. This was made using a Kendama USA kendama, but I don't think KendamaUSA explicitly sponsored the event. I think GLOKEN did that, but I could be mistaken. This piece was also on exhibit at KWC a couple years ago. I've always been in love with it!
Every year the JKA (Japan Kendama Association) has a kendama painting contest. I'm not sure when they start handing out entry forms but I believe the the deadline for entry this past year was the end of May. Last year a Filipino, Alex Santos, won the highschool division. He's also had work displayed/sold in the US.
That is amazing

Yeah, well I'm not that artistic. This started off as a Sweets keychain the goen coin is polished and coated to keep it from tarnishing. (it's a goen and a kendama, get it "goenKendama")
Shichigoro-shingo is behind these kendama art projects.
I like fountain pens and kendama both so this would be really cool BUT it's waaaay out of my league. I've seen them priced at ~US$1000
A simple bit of woodburning on a handturned maple, done by Kristin Olinyk:
That is pretty stunning.
@TerraKendama That's free-hand or did they create a branding iron? Either is intricate work I understand.
2 of my latest wood burned customs. Took one of the paint pens I got from Krom to color in the lines and triangles on both. Might add another burned stripe to the bottom setup.
