Hello all you beautiful people,

I've been looking to get a tattoo of one of Andy's pen and ink drawings of cats, but I'm having difficulty finding a usable picture of the one I want on the internet. I've found one picture of it, I'm posting it below, and I was wondering if any of you have a larger or clearer picture of this specific drawing. 

Thanks a ton, all of you.

Lots of love,

Warhol muse 'lost baby by Dylan'
Inspiration for Blonde On Blonde was forced by doctors to have an abortion, claims brother

Olivia Cole: The (UK) Sunday Times January 7th 2007

Ever since their 1960's heyday at the centre of New York's most hedonistic set, rumours have swirled that Bob Dylan had an affair with a peroxide-blonde, leggy muse of Andy Warhol, the Pop Artist.

Now the brother of Edie Sedgwick, played by Sienna Miller in a forthcoming film called Factory Girl, has given a full account of what he claims was her "deep love" for the singer. He said she conceived a baby she claimed was Dylan's, but was forced by doctors to have an abortion.

The supposed love affair has been at the centre of a legal row between the singer, 65, and the makers of Factory Girl, due to be released next month. Sedgwick died in 1971, aged 28, of a barbituate overdose.

Edie's brother Johnathan, speaking from his home in Idaho, said that Edie told him at the time about a relationship with Dylan and an abortion. "She told me she had to be held down by four men because she fought them so hard to keep the child she claimed was Dylan's. She did tell me later that this was the saddest moment of her life - losing Dylan's child."

In the film, set in the mid-1960s, Edie meets a musician played by Hayden Christensen - who happens, like Dylan, to be a tall, dark-haired, moody harmonica-playing folk singer.

At the time - 1965, as in real life - Edie was a leading light in the Factory. Warhol's tinfoil-papered studio-cum party venue. She has since been credited as the inspiration for the album Blonde on Blonde, one of Dylan's best known, and in particular for two songs on the record - Just Like A Woman and Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat.

Dylan has only once spoken about Edie, in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine in 1985, when he said: "She was a great girl ... I did know her, but I don't recall any type of relationship if I did have one, I think I'd remember."

Although Factory Girl does not mention an abortion, it's story of an affair has infuriated Dylan. Last month, Orin Snyder, the star's lawyer, wrote to Harvey Weinstein, Factory Girl's producer, saying: "Even though Mr Dylan's name is not used, the portrayal remains both defamatory and a violation of Mr Dylan's right of publicity."

George Hickenlooper, director of Factory Girl, said: "No changes were made because of the Dylan legal letter. We feel confident that Dylan has no case."

Warhol called Edie one of his "superstars" and she starred in several of his films, but also became caught up in the drug-fuelled life of the Factory "Some of the guests left in limousines some in ambulances." Nat Finkelstein, a photographer and Factory regular, has said. Edie's intense friendship with Warhol soured when he became jealous of her friendship with Dylan.

Johnathan Sedgwick described how relieved he had been when Edie met Dylan, whom he saw as a calming influence on her. "She called me up and she said she'd met this folk singer in the Chelsea Hotel and she thinks she's falling in love. I could tell the difference in her, just from her voice, she sounded so joyful instead of sad. It was later on she told me she'd fallen in love with Bob Dylan.

"I'm sure it was deep love. I don't think she would have felt that way if it hadn't been."

Johnathan Sedgwick, a retired aeroplane designer, is unsure when the friendship fizzled out. But he said the abortion took place soon after Edie was badly hurt in a motorcycle crash.

"She was claiming to be Edie but they didn't believe her", he said. Eventually, doctors consigned her to a mental hospital where she was treated for drug addiction. Staff found she was pregnant but, fearing the baby had been damaged by her drug use and anorexia, forced her to have the abortion.

Dylan's lawyers declined to comment this weekend.

Warhol Style Screentests at www.edienation.com [06 Dec 2006|11:29pm]

With all the Edie fashion mania, I found this post on www.edienation.com really refreshing. Edie was an incredible artists, and should be recognized as such- thats what I think is really great about Melissa Painter and David Weissman's project. And plus, the screen tests look great- very factory!

“It must be real”
Posted on Wednesday 29 November 2006

Edie was a filmmaker, a collaborator and artist with other underground and experimental filmmakers at a time when making a non-Hollywood film was almost a revolutionary act. Like you she was young at a time when a wave of technological advancements– new video camera, audio recorders and film cameras– were putting power in the hands of the people to tell their own stories. This is a pursuit she believed in fiercely. She said often to fellow adventurers in her film making pursuits, “It must be real, if it isn’t real, there is no movie.” On the eve of the release of a HIGHLY fictionalized Hollywood account of Edie’s life, we hope you will join us in our Internet and video experiment of making real screen tests of real people. WE know you can tell the difference, as she would have wanted, between what is real and what is not.

-Melissa Painter

“I do love Alice in Wonderland though. That’s something I think I could do very well. Don’t you think we ought to do an A.W.? A.W.’s Alice in Wonderland? Andy Warhol’s Alice in Wonderland? A.W. stands for a lot of things, I understand. It, uh, it would make a fantastic film. So I wanted somebody to write the script for it, in a modern sense. Think it would be the most marvelous movie in the world. If it could be done. Don’t you think? Really I don’t think they’ve done one since they did a Walt Disney one- which isn’t really doing it. In a sense it is, but not in the way it really should be done. What’s needed right now is a real scene. I mean not just cartoon characters but the actual character of people because there’s so many fantastic people that you might as well use the people.”

– EDIE 1965

“To be an underground filmmaker… one felt that you were engaged in forbidden activity, which of course lead us to Andy and 47th St and the factory because Andy was hosting this whole feeling of rebellion in image where we could all participate in doing things that were ridiculous and absurd…and so to get a bunch of people who all feel that the sky’s the limit to start being able to do crazy ridiculous image with Andy…

[John, what did it feel like to be in a movie that Warhol directed?] Well, it felt like you were talking your pants off. It was embarrassing. You wondered what were you doing? Why are you doing this? And yet at the same time you knew… You didn’t know then, but to think about it now, I mean imagine you are there and there’s a hundred million dollars worth of art lying around on the floor, and these people fooling around with cameras. Andy, and I’m there with him doing the same thing, and there’s Edie, and we’re all there doing this. And so on the one hand there’s the rebellion, because you know you’re not supposed to, and on the other hand you know that its really really important, and yet its just going to disappear. So that was a peculiar feeling. ”

barneys loves andy [13 Oct 2006|10:14am]


If there ever was a poster boy for shopping, it would have to be Andy Warhol.

The strange artist with the silver wig was a compulsive collector who grew more acquisitive with each passing year, eventually filling his five-story Manhattan town house with so much stuff, only two rooms were habitable.

It seems fitting, then, that Barneys New York should celebrate the patron saint of consumerism with a national program for the holiday season that encompasses visual display, direct mail, advertising and Andy's favorite — merch. "This is the first year we're just going kapow," said Barneys creative director, Simon Doonan. "It's in every piece of our marketing. This is a huge deal for us."

Barneys is giving Warhol the star treatment — after all, the artist famously predicted that everyone would get 15 minutes of fame, although he later amended that to: "In 15 minutes, everyone will be famous." The retailer's Madison Avenue windows will be all about Andy, and the theme will be carried in flagships and Co-op units throughout the chain.

As far back as 18 months ago, Doonan sensed a Warhol moment in the making. Sienna Miller signed on to play Edie Sedgwick, Warhol's tragic muse, in "The Factory Girls," and February will mark the 20th anniversary of the artist's death.

"I'd been thinking I wanted to do something art-related for holiday 2006," Doonan said. "There's a huge dimension to Warhol. There's Andy the artist, Andy the filmmaker, Andy the magazine editor, Andy the social butterfly and Andy the businessman. He has more dimensions than Salvador Dali or Picasso. It's great fodder for the windows. Plus, he was a window dresser. I feel a kinship."

Warhol first exhibited Pop Art in the windows of Bonwit Teller, where early in his career he worked as a window dresser, a job he was so proud of, Doonan pointed out, that he signed his window displays.

In addition to the Barneys windows, the artist will be featured in advertising for Warhol-related merchandise, such as a collection of Warhol Factory X Levi's wax-coated jeans for $185, a denim trucker jacket with an Warhol portrait on the back, $270, and a hooded sweatshirt with a banana print, $176. There also are limited-edition Campbell's soup cans with reproductions of Warhol labels. The artist's images and name are being used through a licensing agreement with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, which supports contemporary art.

Did anyone see the halloween spread in October's Teen Vogue? The ones throwing is used Andy as their muse, it looked fun. They had Campbell's soup cans as candy holders and the girl dressed as Edie. A good idea, anyway.

Hi friends,

I'm Louise, from Vancouver, I'm 18, I like art  and such.

Did anyone else watch  the biography on Andy that was on PBS last night?  I quite enjoyed it myself. I'm seen shows of his before and tried to read the blurbs about his life but retained nothing. However, this was different, the insight into his childhood and the years leading up the Factory was very intrigueing. I learned so much!

Also, I'm considering dressing up as Andy for Halloween, it'd be an excuse to bleach the hell out of my hair and buy a striped shirt and such. However, I don't want to come off as some dumb scene kid or show up at a party that already has an Andy. Has anyone seen this done before? I know its a fairly common choice, but I'm so interested in him right now and dressing up as Truman Capote would be too hard and it seems a little late to go as Team ZIssou.

Thanks for insight or comments or anything really.

Hello hello hello! I just joined, this place looks cool, I know it says no welcome posts but a) I couldn't resist and b) it says ok as long as it has something to do with Andy Warhol therefore... I have only just got into Andy Warhol because I saw his work at the Tate Modern in London. I saw his photos of Marilyn and Elvis and then I bought the Philosophy of Andy Warhol and have almost finished reading that - is that not a great book or what?!? And after I've completely finished I'm going in search for the Andy Warhol Diaries. Anyone read that? Is it better than his Philosophy?!
