Self Portrait Challenge ~ Pop Art

blue boho, canon digital rebel xt & photoshop

This is my first attempt at this week's Self Portrait Challenge of "Pop Art" for the month of June.

I created this with thoughts of Andy Warhol...an artist that I have always found intriguing to say the least. He embodied what it is to me to be super cool. I would definitely crown him the king of pop art.

"Pop art is a significant sociological phenomenon, a mirror of our society."
~ Steven Henry Madoff

Even as a BLUE woman you still look fabulous!

I would look like an alien.

I found Warhol too hard on the eyes, but I still appreciate his creativity and individualism.

Hey...do you still have that cool red skirt I made you???

Just think...I'll get to make more holiday portuguese dresses for your little chicken. Yeah! Right?

The lips - the texture in the lips grabs me. What software did you use for this effect?
