Day of Pop-Art

[music: Come Together by The Beatles]
[mood: okay]

I saw the Andy Warhol exhibit today. I've always liked Warhol's work, but I've always enjoyed his photography a bit more. One thing I'm facsinated with is his rise from commercial artist to becoming one of the founders of pop art. How does one go about creating a 'scene' that influences a generation of artists and musicians?

My wife liked this one at the exhibit. She stated that she didn't know much about Warhol, so I broke it down for her in a short-short bio. Her response was, "He was a graphic designer, then an artist? Well, there's hope for you after all."
