    Wish I could get a quarter million for creating a piece of art that any 3 year old can make like what you see in public city parks.

    As long as there are people with more money than brains, ‘art’ will sell. I’ll just stick with real artists, like Norman Rockwell.

    I believe this debuted as a color strip and the visual was something like a pink triangle. But it wouldn’t be the first time someone saw something in nothing. :)

    Yeah, like the famous “White on White” painting in NYC years ago. Just plain white paint on white canvas. The critics went wild. Sold for a bunch.
    Just too dumb for words.

    Express yourself! Promote yourself! Get yourself rich! But is it art?

    Reminds me of a Doctor Who episode, where the Doctor leaves the Tardis in an art museum. John Cleese plays one of two art critics commenting on how artistic it is when removed from its functionality … then the Doctor gets in and it disappears … leaving them awestruck.

    Just looked it up on IMDb… that was part four of Circle of Death, with Tom Baker as the Doctor.

    Close. It was the City of Death.

    If any kid could scribble on a piece of paper and call it art to sell for thousands of dollars – why haven’t you done it yet? I agree that I don’t appreciate all art forms out there, but I don’t fool myself into thinking that I could easily do the same thing or come up with the same concept.

    I never appreciated Rockwell until I saw some of his less known, more controversial works like “Blood Brothers” or “The Problem We All Live With”. He does a great job at telling a story with his work . .

    Breathed used this same theme in an Academia Waltz strip, if I recall.

    I believe this strip was originally printed in Breathed’s Academia Waltz.

    “Back Street Garbage”…. wasn’t that a boy band in the 90s?

    Just because no one understands you doesn’t make you an artist!

    Thanks for mentioning those – I’d never heard of them. “Blood Brothers” alone atones for his saccharine Saturday morning Post covers…
