Self Portrait Challenge
One of my favourite Warhol muses (and female icons for that matter) is Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Rather than trying to recreate Warhol's Jackie portraits (I used to sport a perfected flip hair-do in my early 20s, but with Ruby around there's no way I have time to fix it up) I went for one of the classic shots in which Jackie O. is being chased by the paparazzi. Not as pop art as some of the photo-shopped stuff that's cropping up on the site, but I like that this one also has a bit of an Italian cinema feel to it as well.
Oh, and as a plug, I've started a monthly column on the SPC site -- the second Wednesday of the month I'll be presenting my picks for that particular week. Read it tomorrow here.
