I was getting paid for it, and I did anything they told me to do. If they told me to draw a shoe, I’d do it, and if they told me to correct it, I would - I’d do anything they told me to do, correct it and do it right.Andy Warhol quoted in article by G.R. Swenson, “What Is Pop Art?: Answers from 8 Painters, Part I,” Artnews 62 (November, 1963) p. 26.
Another reason why he liked it [the blotted line technique] so much [was that] by having your master drawing with which you made your blot, you could keep blotting it and redrawing it and blotting it each time and make duplicate images.Nathan Gluck, commercial art assistant interview with Patrick S. Smith from, Andy Warhol’s Art and Films, UMI Research Press (Ann Arbor: Michigan, 1986), p. 311.
It was absolutely true that he could draw anything and very, very quickly. And so we used him a lot. Tina S. Fredericks, art director, interview with Patrick S. Smith, Warhol: Conversations about the Artist, UMI Research Press (Ann Arbor: Michigan, 1988), p. 100.
Andy and I began a campaign, which was unprecedented at the time. We ran full pages, half pages, every Sunday in the “New York Times.” And it was a spectacular showcase for I. Miller and for Andy as well. It expanded his audience in a way that no magazine editorial ever could have. In a sea of tiny little images that were the pages of the Times, these bold blockbuster fantasies were extraordinarily effective. What the ads did was to revitalize and revive the I. Miller brand, and from a dowdy, musty, fusty, dusty, dowager establishment, it became a stylish emporium for debutantes.Geraldine Stutz, art director, from an exhibition audio guide produced by Antenna audio in collaboration with The Andy Warhol Museum and the Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada.
