Andy Warhol - Patterns

After graduating from art school, Andy Warhol moved to New York City to become a commercial illustrator – his success was enormous. In his first few years in the City, he garnered clients including Glamour Magazine, I. Miller Shoes, Tiffany & Co. and Esquire Magazine. He became known for his whimsical depictions of shoes and other fashion accessories, but his skill at drawing did not stop there. The 1950s was his most prolific decade for book illustration, and many drawings were studies for those books, including: Wild Raspberries, In the Bottom of My Garden, Love is a Pink Cake, A Gold Book, and A is for Alphabet.
