PEOPLE WHO LIKED CAMPBELL’S SOAP ALSO LIKED:
I prefer Cream of Chicken, it lathers better and moisturizes at the same time.
Plus it makes you tender and flavorful.
But a good gumbo soap can really spice up your shower time.
This is a school project. If your mom won’t hang it on the ‘fridge – sell it on Etsy
Why is the Cambells crooked?
Clam chowder for a lady’s intimate area. Check for bits of shell first, though.
For a lady’s intimate area, I’d like the Made with Real Beef Cock.
Aren’t they all?
Sadly, no. The cocktail wieners are made of mystery meat.
like everyone else, i enjoy a good pittsburg reference.
/see what i did there? yeah, i’m cool n’at.
Yinz need to stop already.
The changes also consist of this Andy Warhol being a great artist to you being pretty crappy. Let’s not overlook that.
That awkward moment when someone calls Andy Warhol a great artist.
Now now, lets not deny that at least Andy Warhol has the ability to faithfully represent cylindrical objects and have his lettering in parallel lines, whereas this, well, yeah…..
just cause you don’t like the wine it doesn’t mean the wine is bad
I’m with Tuesdai on this one. Roy Lichtenstein is my pop art god. Warhol is like PBR to me: too many people like it because liking it is popular.
every thing that roy lichtenstein ever did has been tracked to the individual comic panel he traced
Even his sculptures?
nah when he stopped tracing jack kirby and started making works from out of his own feedback loop he was real good but fuck drowning girl and fuck wham
That is completely untrue. Lichtenstein did more than comic panels, and he didn’t trace, he created painted enlargements using a variety of techniques.
And regarding the comic panel paintings, he selected the specific panels he painted with a great deal of care, he was using them to send a message: mostly social commentary– particularly on relations between men and women, highlighting the rampant misogyny of the time. It was intentional.
It’s not uncommon for artists to use devices and techniques that make their jobs seem easier than they are: the camera obscura, for example, or projectors, grid paper, or transfer paper.
I agree with girmaffe, Lichtenstein is a superior artist to Warhol. That isn’t to say that Warhol didn’t have his own genius (it could be argued the persona he cultivated was an act of performance art, itself), but Lichtenstein should not be impugned for “tracing.”
I agree with your agreeing. Lichtenstein was the man. Warhol was interesting in his own way, but I prefer Roy.
Oh, is that why people drink PBR? But I thought hipsters spurned anything “popular.”
You and me both, Kniti. I listen to old radio shows and when a commercial for PBR comes on, I laugh–it usually sponsored the blue-color comedy Life of Riley in the ’50s.
I listen to CBS radio mystery theater Mugs! Every night!! I like you even more now!!
Nothing more hipster than not doing/consuming something because you’ve realized that other hipsters are doing it too. It’s the Hipster Critical Mass Abandonment hypothesis: Hipsters like things until a critical mass of hipsters liking that thing is reached, then they abandon that thing.
I like PBR and Warhol. They are cheap and taste good.
I was with you until you knocked the PBR. don’t go there!! next thing you know we will be on to fat jokes and then I’ll REAAAALLLY get my panties in a twist.
I’ve always been a fan of Salvador Dali’s “The Persistence of Mammaries”.
Van Gogh’s “Stabby Night” is another favorite.
And let’s not forget “Pube Descending Staircase” by Marcel Duchamp. A classic.
“hamburglar crossing the alps” by j.m.w. turner is one of my favourite paintings ever
That made me laugh out loud. Fucking funny.
This needs to happen now.
Done. Results to follow.
Guard your Big Maximas, Mayor McCaeasar!
I’m especially fond of “Whistler’s Goatherd”
And his lesser-known masterpiece “Whistler’s Goatse.”
My fav is the revised Mona Lisa where we discover that she was smiling because someone went on Etsy and bought her a “goddess” vulva pendant…..encrusted with glitter.
Reminds me of a long-standing dream of being a brilliant painter, and doing a series of classical nudes and semi-nudes in the full Rembrandt/Da Vinci/whatever style, but give them crass and vulgar titles, like “Chick with One Tit Hanging Out,” “Naked Broad,” “She’s Got a Hot Rack,” “Check Out Her Ass,” and “They’re Totally About to Fuck.” Alas, I lack the talent to make that happen.
I love this idea SO HARD.
I’d steal it but I can’t really see myself committing to a project that’s all ladies and no hot naked dudes.
I guess there are SOME naked dudes in classic art…but not nearly enough.
For those of you grumbling about the lack of hot naked dudes in classical art: Caravaggio. Oh, all right, those are lukewarm almost-naked dudes. And the rest are mostly large & hard, marble & bronze.
Most items on Etsy make me think of “The Scream”
I bet this artist could do Rodin’s “The Stinker”.
Or “The Moaning Lisa”. There’s just something about that smile.
I wish they’d do “The Scram” by Art Munch.
Or Hogs Playing Poker.
How about Blue Balls Boy? You could hang him right across from a nude “goddess” painted in menstrual blood.
Johannes Vermeers….”The Girl With The Pearl Necklace.” A Masterpiece of a “painting”.
Don’t you mean Johannes Vermeers….”The Girl With The Pearl Anal Beads.”
I’m thinking the teacher in drawing class failed to discuss copying off another person’s paper? Or maybe that was the assignment, take something and make it slightly different.
was the class etsy 101?
Eh, it’s not uncommon to try and reproduce other works to boost your skills and understanding of concepts, but that obviously doesn’t mean you then turn around and sell the damn things. You sell your own work, not someone else’s! Even with “changes.”
Yes, that person should be ashamed of copying Warhol’s copy of a Campbell’s soup can.
I really, really hope that this was high school and not college freshman drawing…
I’m guessing it was. When I was doing high school art it largely involved this type of “copy an artist’s work” stuff. I learned sweet F.A. about art, but I did learn a fair bit about forgery. Clearly this person needs to hone those forgery skills somewhat, but we all have to start somewhere.
Apprentice to chinese resellers of ‘famous art’?
Um, that’s actually witty and as awesome than the original, which is kind of not the point.
Oops – ‘as’
Elvis is King.
How does the soap come out if you’ve bent the lid INWARDS to open it?
Now I’m thinking I can get big money for my VISA1100 final project in which I included a charcoal reproduction of the Mona Lisa (and might I say, it looked considerably more like the real thing than the soap can). While the price tag on the can is rather cheap, I’m thinking $10,000 for the full picture which also features myself and a reproduction of Water Lilies — the project had to do with my insecurity/frustration in the quality of my own work — and $50,000 if you want me to hack it down to just Ms. Lisa. Cha-ching?
Anybody else hoping they release a Chunky version?
I’m sorry that Campbell’s stopped selling their little Soup-for-One cans of soup. They’d be perfect for the budget-strapped art lover.
In my world, soup for one = regular size can.
In my world, too, and I’d use two of those “soup-for-one” cans for one serving. Seriously, they barely filled a teacup!
Pudding Cups in six-packs: same general idea.
So you’re claiming your freshman-level, pot-fueled, poorly-executed and error-filled homework assignment is a pastiche and is worth $10? Offer your mom $10 to let you hang it on the fridge – but prepare for a rude shock.
She’d be like, “Uhhhh…magnets don’t work on this fridge. Tape doesn’t stick, either. We’ll find a good spot for it in the basement.”
“Your nice picture? It’s still on the fridge under those pages of Help Wanted ads for ditch-diggers and Etsy administrators. Why do you ask?”
Freshman Drawing class assignment? I hope the teacher pulled his/her student aside and suggested a different major.
Maybe it was freshman year of high school.
7th grade is a little early to be picking majors.
7th grade is a little early to call yourself a freshman, too.
I hear the low-sodium soap is healthier.
Anything else is just rubbing salt in a wound.
You know what they say about the Velvet Undergrad: not everyone’s heard of them, but anyone who has went on to college.
Wasn’t that what they called Mel Torme when he was in college?
He was the Velvet Frosh.
He was Smell Torme in college until he shortened both himself and his name. It’s true, look it up!
It wasn’t until recently that McDonald’s disclosed their “vegetable” menu item had beef in it. Campbell’s – ahead of their time.
Art Collector: I like it, but I’m looking for something with a little more character. You know, like “Gods Playing Poker” or “American Gothabilly”.
Hidden due to low comment rating. Click here to see.
How about ‘Dogs playing Poker’, that is a masterpiece!
Thanks for playing and better luck next time. I hope you enjoy your lovely parting gifts!
So students’ attempts to hide plagiarism in art class look just as obvious as when they try to do it in papers. Good to know!
I was into the Velvet Undergrad before they sold out and went all mainstream.
I was into minimalism before it was all that.
I was into Old Spice when it was just Spice.
I was into the disembodied hand before it was a Thing.
You’re just showing off.
I’ll stop if you tell your avatar to stop looking at mine that way.
I was into Republicans back when they were Democrats.
Does anyone else not see what the fuck they’re talking about when they say, “10 and 320/4 oz”?
I think it’s on either side of the gold medallion. You know, the darker red smudges.
90 – I are good at math! It might written in the red part of the can?
80, actually. But who’s counting?
I can see how it would be 90 because you would add the 10. BUT WTF DOES IT MEAN?!?!
The can said 10-1/4 oz originally?
Oh. Maybe it’s some dumb stoner thing.
Oh, God. You’re probably right.
I double checked. I guess none of that adds up to 420.
Oh. Still confused. But for a different reason this time.
Because “Saved by the Bell” isn’t on anymore? I’m confused about that, too.
Goes well with the Campbells Soap Apron
When I was a kid, my mother would make me wash my mouth out with Campbell’s soap if I said a bad word at the dinner table.
As if we couldn’t tell this wasn’t a Warhol. Pffft.
I wonder if the “small changes” were intended to avoid copyright liability? If so, that’s probably progress by Etsy’s standards.
Would it be Warhol’s copyright or Campbells’ that would be violated?
I actually had a little burst of “WANT” over the soap can, but then I realized it wasn’t an error, and I lost interest.
I have no idea what that says about me.
OK this is bugging me, why does it look like the Velvet Undergrad banana picture is drawn on the back side of something? What is it?
WHEN WILL THE “VELVET UNDERGRAD” IMAGE BE AVAILABE AS A POSTER I CAN BUY. I AM READY TO THROW MY MONEY AT YOU.
This kid may not have talent, taste, imagination or inspiration, but what he lacks in artistic ability he more than compensates for this in hubris. As regretsy has demonstrated over and over again, one need not be talented to foist garbage on etsy.
Ironically, if it has been a nice painting of garbage, that might have been acceptable. That’s what Warhol did.
