shutterfly, self portraits, and andy warhol

i made this little guy after being inspired by the andy warhol exhibit at the brooks museum in memphis. i took the self portrait and then manipulated it with shutterfly photo software that you can download for FREE here. to get the effect i used the graphic poster option and chose different colors for each pic. the entire thing was printed onto white muslin with an ink jet printer. then i cut a backing and batting and quilted around the edges multiple times to get a sketched look. my mom sewed the binding for me...i do not have the patience to hand sew something that boring. thanks mom.

i think i may head over to the art fair in town this afternoon with my dad. inspiration anyone?
