Before Soup Cans
Pre-soup cans and studio 52 Andy Warhol was an illustrator who did insanely gorgeous work for magazines like Harper’s Bazaar and Mademoiselle and I’m so taken with all of it. Plus I think it’s ironic (and then again maybe not ironic at all) that he got his start doing commercial art before he went on to do fine art about commerce and pop culture. Either way, his fashion illustrations are absolutely beautiful. In fact there’s a sweet little book dedicated to them that’s better than Campbell’s Chicken Noodle soup on a rainy day.
