Happy Birthday to Andy Warhol!
My all-time favorite artist and a great inspiration since I was a kid. Totally turned me on to a long-time fascination with brands and icons. If you’re ever in Pittsburgh, you should visit his museum … it’s wonderful.
I just wish I still had the giant JIF peanut butter jar I painted for a 7th-grade presentation on Warhol’s style. Incidentally, I can remember that report like it was yesterday … all the kids’ eyes popping out of their heads as I happily presented to them Andy’s huge blow-up photographs of gruesome accident photos. I got an A.
