Dan ApparatusSend Dan Apparatus a message :   I've always loved Fotheringham's shit but what did his art look like before he started in with the David Stone Martin stuff?   2003-04-03 09:15:42
standardSend standard a message :   Overall, this is just an excellent piece of work, but the "rock'n'roll" burst really makes it for me.   2003-04-03 08:41:47
PlantweedSend Plantweed a message :   What's he doing these days? I remember in an interview somewhere he was quite upfront about "faking" the Warhol thing and half(?)-ironically saying he'll milk it for all he can. Good for him, I like his shit.   2003-04-03 08:40:01
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   ed was a clasically trained painter (he studied under jacob lawrence, among others) and was represented by the 'best' gallery in seattle. didn't sell shit. he was working on the loading dock at the uw bookstore and living with mudhoney and charles peterson. he also "sang" in a band called the thrown ups. when mudhoney approached me to work on their record 'piece of cake'. they wanted to know if their buddy ed could work on it, too (he's already done many of their covers). i'd already worked with him many times through the rocket and sub pop, so, i said sure. as the project progressed, the band kept pointing out the work of early warhol and david stone martin and ben shahn (a blotted line style that was ubiquitous in the 1950's but had completely vanished). after the initial meetings he came back with like 30 drawings done in a hard-edge lino-cut style that was all wrong. we pointed out david stone martin again and said "like this!" the next morning he came back with like 30 MORE drawings (he stayed up all night teaching himself how to do it) and they were brilliant and in that blotted line look. we then hooked him up with my buddy natahn gluck (who worked with warhol back in the 50's when he was still a graphic designer), and he showed ed just how it was done. nathan did some of the lettering on that piece, and i did the rest. the drawings were b&w, so i designed them up and did the color, too. ed's career exploded, and within two years was actually pulling dsown 350 g's annually. amazing dude. brilliant.   2003-04-03 08:31:12
