Get your 15 minutes of fame right here. Upload an image to the Warholiser at the Tate and the best images will be turned them into modern day masterpieces.

It would be nice to see some non-passport photo's up there.

Well, this is non-passport. I don't even think we had them in 1963. Anyway, I just submitted it.

The page appears to render hopelessly broken in Mozilla. Folks using a browser with a gecko renderer might want to try checking it out with something else.

Sure would be nice to see some instant image feedback. Who has time for Warhol's Ghost to "let me know..."?

When I went to the Warhol Museum on Pittsburgh's North Side a couple of years ago, they were having one of their do-it-yourself art workshops in the basement studio, and I got to do something lower-tech but similar. What I did was this: I posed for pix in the four-shots-for-a-dollar photo portrait booth, photocopied the prints onto a transparency, then taped the transparent photos onto construction paper, with contrasting-color construction-paper outlines for head, sweater, etc. inserted between the background and the transparent-and-black photo image. It made for a nice "Marilyn Monroe portrait" effect like this site's, achieved on the cheap.
