The Sayers guy has written a post on Andy Warhol – who is of some interest to me as a design student. To be honest, I’ve never really taken much intentional notice of him because pop-art is, well, pop-art, but this accidental ‘history lesson’ has proved rather intriguing. I’d be curious to know where Mark Sayers has pulled his info from, because at a guess the facts are contriversial. I’m fairly convinced that one of my lecturers might implode ever so slightly at the idea. Regardless, it is a very interesting take on an artist regarding influence in relation to one prophetic of the times. And that itself is probably a fact even the most jaded of beings cannot ignore. Warhol definitely made his mark.
Post of the day to Mark Sayers:
Just an all round good quality insightful post.
Golly I love designers who can think AND can write about what they think.
I’ve been using up my blogging energy lately being overwhelmed with all the work I have to finish up before uni ends for the semester. I have one week left of classes and a folio week-extra time to finish things off. So I’m peddling my face (read bum) off trying to fill out my folios enough to get me through this lot classes. The direst of circumstances would see me failing packaging and having to do it again (that would be torture) but I think I’ll be okay. It’ll just be a jammed ugly few weeks
On a slightly *lighter note, post of the day to Naked Pastor for Flee to the Desert, because I thoroughly identify.
*as aptly pointed out this is not lighter, merely different
Post of the day goes deservingly to my boss (and not because I’m sucking up).
