Why do you think he did the same pictures right next to each other with different colors?

Is advertising and art the same thing?

What to bring to class—Bring a picture of a simple object that has been copied 4 times.

It could be a picture of a cowboy boot – printed 4 times. Or a flower. Or a animal. A can of soup like Any Warhol.  It could be a word in blocked letters. You can draw it yourself or print something you find online. Think of something everyday and ordinary that means something to you.

Print each of the four identical images to be no more than 5 x 7 in size.
