Does it make sense that the price on this has actually gone UP since this was first featured?
That happens frequently on items featured on Regretsy…usually by sellers who bitch and moan that April is getting all criminally by posting things here. They never acknowledge that we send them more traffic than they’ve had.
Then again, we’ve had cupcakes who claim they don’t want sales that are a result of being featured here. Guess that’s because the money that comes through PayPal from an FJL is cursed and should be avoided.
Mugsy, be fair now, paypal money is cursed, whom-so-ever initiated the transaction.
*stops to reply to Whimsiclefucker*
You’re right, Whims, as usual.
*goes back to banging head on desk*
Yes, because raising the price worked sooooo well as a marketing initiative that it’s still in the *ahem* artist’s (?) store a year later!
OhHowMyBrainHurts, that makes it RETRO and more valuable!
A few more years down the road, a cog glued to his nose, and…. IT’S STEAMPUNK!
the price went up because he is even more dead now. the more time that passes, the more something is worth according to the “experts”
To quote my other reason for getting up in the morning: “BDGAAAAAAH!!”. It has not aged well, no no no.
I think your “Pop” went flat.
I think that Regretsy math indicates it’s a fairly accurate portrait.
It really captures the “fucked-up” part of Michael Jackson perfectly.
The Steamroller School of Art.
so…michael jackson post-op + joan crawford = michael jackson!
actually the first picture is the Invisible man and in this painting MJ is less King of Pop and more King of Poop
They got the nose right.
Minerva Mcgonagall won best costume the year she went as a Death Eater…
“Jordan” is an elephant
I just got that.
Michael Jackson – still dead.
Tragicrafting three years later – not dead.
They must’ve had a sale on black and gray down at Michael’s.
Something tells me the hangers were not wire at all.
IT PUTS THE LOTION ON ITS CANVAS
What a horrible thing to do to quality acrylic paint.
I’m surprised the canvas didn’t reject the paint once it realized what was happening to it.
That nose is shaped too much like a real nose to belong to MJ.
This is how I imagine John Travolta will eventually look if he doesn’t lay off the hair plugs.
And the male masseurs.
He’s totally straight! He has a “wife”! He flies planes! Gay guys don’t have “wives” and fly planes, do they?
Especially not if they’re Scientologists!
and E-meters and Theatans and male Theatan masseurs
One of my favorite Onion headlines: “New E-Meter Measures Human Gullibility”.
Ah, should’ve scrolled down a bit more before posting…
And some FJLs thought the photoshopped picture of his corpse was bad!
Ah, yes, I remember this artist. It’s the same teen who did the David Bowie painting.
Reminds me of Sloth from the Goonies.
All this art work is ‘deep’.
In fact, it’s a perfect expression of Man’s Inhumanity To Man as an artistic expression! A Sadartist if you will.
I much prefer a Sedarist.
Amy or David?
David, first, then Amy.
Amy’s sicker, David’s more palatable to general audiences. I like ‘em both, but Amy’s more my style.
I’m wondering if this art is bad enough to be accepted to The Museum of Bad Art? Maybe someone should contact them,
Food for thought; This is probably an accurate depiction of what MJ might look like now… You know… With the decomposition of whatever natural tissue was left of his face.
It looks like Tammy Faye Baker’s death mask.
