Quick Turnaround

Thursday morning at 7:30, the party planner emailed with a request.  Photograph the Bar Mitzvah boy that afternoon between 4:30 and 5 and turn his portrait into a Warhol poster.  Shooting Levi was the easy part.  Finding a local printer to turnaround a mounted 20 x 20 print in one day (Levi’s party was Saturday night at 7) was the first hurdle.  Figuring out how to Warhol the photograph turned out to be more challenging than I had anticipated.  I had an image of Marilyn Monroe quadrupled with bright colored backgrounds, but it wasn’t until I googled photoshop Warhol that I realized it would take a lot more attention to detail than I had time for to duplicate the master.  So I winged it, and here’s what I came up with on short notice…a bit of Warhol and Lichtenstein combined.
