Andy Warhol was an iconic pop art mastermind. Now you can be one too! Take a photograph, or use an existing one, and create a piece of pop art. You can use something ordinary, like Warhol's Campbell's Soup can, or do a portrait, like Warhol's Marilyn Monroe. This can be done in Photoshop, Gimp, or whatever photo editing software you have available. This website: http://www.melissaevans.com/tutorials/andy-warhol-up-your-photographs shows one way to Warhol Something.

Free Warhol!

Andy Warhol was an innovator in the world of Pop Art, blurring the line between commercial art and fine art, between artist-as-creator and artist-as-appropriator. Claes Oldenburg is an innovator in the world of Pop Art, blurring the line between everyday objects as objects and everyday objects as art. In both …

The Invader with Warhol Effect

This is an easy on inspired by  Katy Chase, who did an Invaders-inspired version of the Warhol Something assignment.  I haven’t done it yet, so I figured what the hell! I simply cropped out an image of the “alien” from the Twilight Zone episode “The Invaders” (you can see …

Smoking Warhol

Assignment (Visual) 560: Warhol Something.

Andy Warhol

I took this photo with Photobooth on my computer and added the pop art effect. Quick, easy, and simple! Finding the subject worthy of being Warhol-ed though was a different matter. There were so many things I could choose from, including myself.

Slow Life Down with Photobooth

lazy weekends call for lazy art, right?

It’s the weekend, time for a few errands, grocery shopping, mending a bit of that landscape edging you promised your wife you’d get to a month ago, and spending some time with the kids. Truth be told, our weekends are usually all sorts…

Warhol Something – Hallmark Barbie

Instead of doing The Daily Create, I chose to complete a visual assignment.  This one is called “Warhol Something.” I wonder what Andy Warhol would have thought of Photoshop and what he would have done with it?

I was thinking about this image in my sleep. I thought I could…
