Taylor Mead, Warhol star, poet and actor, died on May 8th. My first portrait of Taylor was in December, 1979. We'd talk every so often for the next 34 years. When our mutual friend, Warhol star Tally Brown died, Taylor attended the funeral with Holly Woodlawn and Penny Arcade.

Taylor Mead, Warhol star, poet and actor, died on May 8th. My first portrait of Taylor was in December, 1979. We'd talk every so often for the next 34 years. When our mutual friend, Warhol star Tally Brown died, Taylor attended the funeral with Holly Woodlawn and Penny Arcade. In 2003, Taylor sat for another portrait. A few weeks later he stopped by to ask if he could use it for a Christmas card.
