AFTER ANDY

Apparently an iconographer is not an artist of icons, so I can't call myself one, even more so because instead of using paint I produced this screenshot on my iPhone as I pointed it at a soup can today and previewed its filter effects.  I was parodying Andy Worhol's 32 Campbell's Soup Cans just before I had the contents of this particular one for lunch.  Baxters (for some reason with no apostrophe) Cock-a-Leekie is a Scottish icon which, like Macsween's haggis, Tunnock's Teacakes and Barr's Irn-Bru are now available throughout the civilised world but always taste better in Scotland, which is where I am again this week.  Sadly, tours of the Baxters factory are fully booked for 2015 and 2016.  Even more sadly, Andy's Factory closed in 1984, long before digital technology gave us all the tools to emulate his iconic creations in an instant.
