illo friday: canned

and yes, of course! who else to inspire and influence a canned art, but Andy Warhol.. lol!

insomniac in a can
290 x 460
MS Paint

i never went to art school. my folks cant afford it then and always say there is no money in art. but i always loved art ever since i was a little girl. i drew on walls, notebooks, tables at school.. ha! but i never have kept a sketch book.

today i saw a post by racheal and this made me think twice of not having one. my job is not related to art in any way, but i sure need an escape sometimes and drawing and painting has always been my frustration. now should i consider myself a canned frustrated artist? lol..


20 Park your thoughts here:

I like your play with Warhol here. :0)

I think it's a great idea for you to have an artist's journal to sketch in at odd moments. Why not?

well i always have a small notebook handy that i bring everyday. (tons of them now lol) i used to write a lot of poems there and if a line strikes me out of nowhere, i write it down. im more into writing before, but i guess now that i deal with words and talking at my work, it somehow leaves me with a writer's block. i guess i never really had a journal for artworks coz i focus more on poetry before..

but yeah now id definitely start one.. better late than never.. hehe! 8)

I have lots of books filled with sketches and snippets of writing that if my children ever found I would be locked up.

great post, love your tribute to warhol. Canned Sighs could be very popular, especially the atomicvelvet kind :) i have spent my life painting and drawing every day. I look at it like I have an opportunity to express and create as much as possible and i take it!

The main purpose of going to school for artists is simply to give you a context to do what you want to do anyway, and maybe a credential or two. If you're doing it anyway, then it's all good.

I saw a documentary not long ago where another artist (I don't remember who) talked about going to Warhol's place for lunch and being served...Campbell soup. Apparently it's what he ate at home.

well i guess you're right about art schools.. anyway that campbell soup is indeed a cool idea being served at warhol's! ha! 8D
