    there was an OTer that found this painting (minus the word bubbles, obviously) at a garage sale. i think it'd be funny to paint the bubbles in and frame it :o

    my walls usually don't have anything on them. i usually get bored of it and paint large murals on them, but never really finish before i have to move out :o

    Too bad urbanoutfitters decided they can charge outrageous prices for their shit. I can only imagine those paintings are like 4-5 times more than what they're worth. They're awesome though, I like the first two the most.

    I don't know many people who would rag on art, none of those are really fruity except maybe the bird with the umbrella one.

    go to the website if it's listed, and often they have a shop where you can buy a poster if they aren't sold out.
