Re: Re: Lesson 2 Andy Warhol

Duncan Rawlinson

Hey John!

You’ve written a great piece here. I’m glad that you’ve made the effort to really find someone that inspires you. Beyond that you even looked at why his work inspires you.

I’m not sure if it’s sad, fascinating, or a reflection that we now have tools that will “andy warhol” your photograph:

Whatever the case I agree that you should never limit your work to one medium or style.

These days we have the technology to produce really anything we can think of. I’m not just talking about photography either.

You can now create 3d objects in your computer, send them over the internet, and have them printed out as real objects!!!

Think about that for a minute. Now anything you can dream up can be “printed” out. Soon this will be on our respective desktops…

So yes, the possibilities are endless!!

That said it never hurts to learn the “rules” and the technical side of things, if only so that you can break them for a reason later on. Stuff like the golden ratio and good composition across all artwork.

For anyone reading this later you can learn more about Warhol here:

Thanks for creating a good piece.

I look forward to seeing you explore the endless creative possibilities with inspiration from Warhol.


See you on the next assignment.
