Andy Warhol Fashion Sketches. His early Years for Harper´s Bazaar.

Mírate, que bien duermes, la que has montado hijo. Tu si que eres querido por muchos; Me incluyo Sr.
Pero cuánto has dado a este mundo: Has implementado los principios básicos de la fórmula arte-negocio, y mira que generas billetes…
Sin Embargo hay algo tuyo que me encanta, una parte tuya casi olvidada, y que, aquí en este humilde espacio, mis lectores, colaboradores y yo,  le haremos reverencia: reverencia a tu LADO MÁS FASHION.Look at you, how candid you are while sleeping; look at you, what you´ve done… You are so loved from many, including myself. You´ve given to this world a lot, you´ve drawn up the formula art plus business, and look at the result, the concept bore fruits like bill sprouts around almost everything bearing your name, yet there´s one side from you I love, a side almost forgotten, but here, on this humble space, my readers, my contributors and I will get together to take a bow to your most FASHIONABLE SIDE. A lot of great experiences huh? Tell us, while we peep into your fantastic world, into your sketches, and your flirty figures. Allow me Mr. Warhol to pay you homage, and let me tell you, no one draws shoes like you did
Qué buenas experiencias ¿no? Contarnos! Mientras apreciamos tus bocetos, tus figuras coquetas y tu magia; Warhol: Permíteme  hacerte un pequeño homenaje. Debo decir que nadie, pero nadie dibuja un par de tacones como tu lo has hecho.When I used to do shoe drawings for the magazines, I would get a certain amount for each shoe, so then I would count up my shoes fo figure out how much I was going to get. I lived by the number of shoe drawings--when I counted them I knew how much money I had.
Cuando ilustraba zapatos para las revistas; recibía una cierta cantidad por cada zapato; Así que, para saber cuánto dinero tenía, contaba cada par. Vivía de acuerdo al número de éstas ilustraciones, así que cada vez que los contaba, sabía cuánto dinero tenía.
When you think about it, department stores are kind of like museums.
 Si lo analizas un poco, las tiendas departamentales son una especie de museos
Para mi, la mejor, ojo:
De las cosas que mas recuerdo de aquellos dias, aparte de las largas jornadas, son las cucarachas. Todos y cada uno de los pisos en los que estuve, venían llenos de éstas. Nunca olvidaré la Humillación que sentí al traerle mi dossier a Carmel Snow, en las oficinas de Harper´s Bazaar, donde, tan solo abrir la cremallera del portafolio, salió una cuca arrastrandose hacia la pata de la mesa. Tan apenada se sintió por mi, que me dio el trabajo.
The things I remember most about those days, aside from the long hours I spent working, are the cockroaches. Every aparment I ever stayed in was loaded with them. I´ll never forget the humiliation of bringing my portfolio up to Carmel Snow´s office at Harper´s Bazaar and unzipping it only to have a roach crawl out and down the leg of the table. She felt so sorry for me that she gave me a job.

No conocía esa faceta, me parecen unos figurines fabulosos, la verdad.
Yo, como La Porta Mágica, he tenido mi etapa Edie, y por consiguiente he estado muy colgada con Warhol.

Sé que ya te lo he comentado, pero como me gusta tu blog...Pienso repetírtelo siempre mientras sigas con estos posteos tan maravillosos

No se cuanto cobraría por cada ilustración de zapatos, pero se imaginaría en algún momento que un sólo cuadro se vendería por 25 millones de euros????

my.amalgam said...

wow literally, everything he draws is so iconic!

and in reference to the comment you made on my blog, if you were talking about the glass like square hanging over the small island, i am not sure but i do think it is anish kapoor!

i love his stuff, and that material is usually his media, so i would not be surprised if it was.

thanks for the comment!
love your blog!
