slaterSend slater a message :   I was looking to blend together things that are important to the Dandy's visual style: Andy Warhol, Pop Art, drugs, the Velvet Underground and Lou Reed and the idea of icons and stardom...
My idea was to create a new piece of pop art...Warhol used portraits often in what he did and I felt like Lou Reed would be the most important figure in relation to the band. I wanted the print to have a really syrupy candy like feel to the colors and I even wanted to the shapes on Lou's face to resemble hard candy (also slang for heroin, yeah I've probably watched the Wire one too many times)
The Transformer cover is the most recognizable pic of Lou which is why I choose to work from that.

steve wSend steve w a message :   but not d"Lou Reed". do a soup can or a brillo box. warhol had nothing to do with the cover of Transformer. I'd feel better about it if it were a more obscure photo.   2009-01-13 14:08:42

weathermakerSend weathermaker a message :   i think there's the word play of d"Andy Warhol" to consider...   2009-01-13 14:04:45
SashSend Sash a message :   Dis poster looks sweet but I tend to agree that using a famous or iconic musician to advertise a "lower tier" band is unworkish. Specially if said famous musician is still alive.   2009-01-13 14:03:02

victor_howitzerSend victor_howitzer a message :   I think Lou Reed really only has like 3 or 4 good solo songs. That's probably all the Dandy Warhols have as well...so it probably works out ok.   2009-01-13 13:22:02
Baloney BoySend Baloney Boy a message :   i don't know... the image of Lou Reed only seems to point up the deficiencies of the band advertised....it's like using a Van Gogh to advertise your crummy graffiti-inspired art show   2009-01-13 13:00:58

supereightsnateSend supereightsnate a message :   so many nice warhol-y concepts working here, but love how the mosaic in Lou's face is kinda related to the eye/text mosaic from your ween poster. This is one clever design.   2009-01-13 09:05:30
