A heady mix of childhood nostalgia and cultural relevancy.

Words by

Giulia Brugliera

I cannot explain to you my joy when this came across my desk. It was that level of excitement that makes you wee just a tiny lil’ bit and not tell anyone. It was that heady mix of childhood nostalgia and cultural relevancy.

It was Where’s Warhol?

Probably needing no explanation, Where’s Warhol? is a Warhol-oriented version of Where’s Wally. It’s got everything: the highly frequented Studio 54, overscaled Campbell’s tomato soup cans and every celeb from Grace Jones to Alfred Hitchcock.

Admittedly, the illustrations are a little overscaled themselves: Where’s Warhol? requires nowhere near the technical finesse the traditional childhood version calls for.

But whatever, you were never going to hunt for hours with a pencil to circle him anyway.
