Unless you have been living under a rock you know last week Andy Warhol’s Double Elvis sold for just over $37 million at auction at a Sotheby’s contemporary art sale in New York.
Celebraties portraits are another thing Andy and I have in common. I did several celebrities portraits in my early years, mostly when I was in high school. Of course, Andy was commissioned to do a lot of the portraits he did – I just drew them to see if I could get a resemblance of the celebrities. Willie Nelson was probably the hardest portrait I have ever drawn.
