The Invader with Warhol Effect


twilight-zone-season-2-15-the-invadersThis is an easy on inspired by  Katy Chase, who did an Invaders-inspired version of the Warhol Something assignment.  I haven’t done it yet, so I figured what the hell! I simply cropped out an image of the “alien” from the Twilight Zone episode “The Invaders” (you can see it to the right), and then I ran in through this LunaPic Warhol effect site, and BAM! Just be sure to right-click on the image and save it to your computer to upload it on your site.

Eventually I am gonna try and animate each of the 9 image with there various Warhol-inspired colors, but that will be a design assignment for next week, cause I gotta move.

    So glad I could serve as inspiration! It turned out great!

    Hisorical question: Was anyone doing these multiples, multicolor replications, prior to Warhol, either fine art or advertising art? It seems the concept really caught on with him in the sixties and seventies, but I don’t know about before. I’ll dig into it myself, but pose it as something else to occupy your spare time. Personally, I’m doing this while in the maternity waiting room as my daughter is having a baby!

      Wow, you are committed! And congratulations, what an awesome moment. As for a pre-Warhol moment of this effect, that’s a really good question and I have no idea.

    How exciting, congratulations! The pop-art movement in general shows many similar qualities to Warhol’s work. Jasper Johns and Roy Liechtenstein are both excellent examples of art that exploits colors and is sometimes repetitive in similar ways to Warhol!

  4. This is really cool. I like how the lighting made the colors turn out.

    Katy, Warhol was a commercial artist in the late fifties before he went pop. His fashion work led to his ideas for using pop culture iconography in almost anonymous serial and multiple works with the color renditions that were influenced by and influenced the pop world of the sixties. It’s interesting from a personal perspective to look back on the art I loved in its time and see not only its influence, but ongoing controversies and misunderstandings. (For what it’s worth, I was an art major when I started college in 1970).

    Gotta go…. Baby girl arrived!!!!!
