Andy Warhol
born : Andrew Warhola  
  1928-1987

OK, so everybody knows WARHOL, but I love his early drawings before he opened "THE FACTORY" and became a POP ART ICON.  If you're ever in Pittsburgh, PA you have to visit THE WARHOL MUSEUM. It's AN AWESOME freak-show.

A VISIT WITH ANDY'S MOM :



 A drawing by Andy's mother. 

 Julia Warhola.  
I saw a show of her work in Pittsburg, PA.  She was a genius and Andy's "BIG" influence. A collaboration between Andy Warhol and his mother continued for many years throughout his illustration days in NYC.  Andy's mom moved to New York City in 1952 to be with Andy. She continued her drawing through the Fifties and Sixties. Andy admired her abilities and used her penmanship often. Her decorative handwriting would often accompany his illustrations. She won awards for her lettering. In 1957 she illustrated a small book called Holy Cats. It featured what she loved to draw most, angels and cats.  She was known for her stylish, quirky illustrations and masterful calligraphy.
