"I think everybody should like everybody." ― Andy Warhol

Happy Birthday Andy Warhol. He would have been 87 today. The world misses you still. He inspired me to take photo booth photos, which is a great way to document my youth and my life. I hope to preserve my life and thoughts. I hope to achieve that here. Everything I create is my attempt to express my appreciation and love for life. He has inspired me so much. He really had a unique view on art and life. That's why I'm so enamored by his body of work. You just can't replicate Andy Warhol. 

"I like boring things."

I wonder if Andy and I would have gotten along. Admiring someone you don't know is such a strange concept. Especially if that person passed away before you were born. He has been quoted to "like boring things". It doesn't look like he led a boring life... at all. I am fascinated by the whole idea of the Silver Factory, but given its time and culture, people were definitely not doing boring things there. Nevertheless, I will focus on the contribution that Andy made to art. I love art.
