MAKE MORE MONEY THAN WARHOL-- DOING WARHOL!A Gal pal told me "Guess what? I've been manifesting a bit more $$. I just worked a bat mitzvah that was more lavish than Chuck and Di's wedding. I wasn't even advertising, but folks knew the hosts and talked up my MAGIC CAMERA GAMBIT which I'd already done for a few parties. So the invite came to do the magic camera bit at a HUGEAMONGUS wedding. The job came as a total surprise. Cuz I had no ads up anywhere. Made such a bloody fortune on 100 guests and was such a senation that now I'm going to start advertising on Craigs list, at SERVICES, / EVENTS section. It'll read "WEDDING WARHOLS!!" I think that explains what I do. Or should I say "SOUVENIR PHOTOS of themselves for your party guests." Anyway, with no ads up, I got a call out of the blue, made fabulous money. I photographed 100 guests, give them these gimmicky WARHOL souvenir photos. WEDDING WARHOLS I CALL THEM! IS THAT HIGH CONCEPT OR WHAT?
It's so simple, too. Shhhh, you mustn't breathe this to a soul. I use a DIGITAL CAMERA, and then have a laptop and printer, a software set-up that can turn any high res, high contrast PHOTO into pseudo-Warhol! I'd make nice and get people to stand in front of a green screen and studio lights and take their pictures w/ a digital camera, and every so often the digital card would get exchanged back to a laptop computer which would process the pictures and print them so they'd look like Andy Warhol's "Marilyn"--i.e. high-contrast, and repeating images, you know, six to a page, eight.....a colored background--and later on they'd be framed and available as party favors."

YOU BETTER NOT TELL ANY OF YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
FRIENDS OR YOU'RE DEAD MEAT!
OK PUGGIE. I WON'T! (fingers crossed)
AND FOR REALLY DRUNKEN PARTIES, DO IT THIS WAY .......
Smile for the Camera. Andy? Smile. Sir? SMILE!
SAY CHEESE. Oh Oh,watch out! He's heaving!
