The Price is Right.

I'm just not really sure what to make of this.

I guess... more power to the artist (Banksy).

And the buyers are idiots.

I do believe that it's 'art' (that question was asked and answered a looooong time ago), I'm just not sure it's so great that it's worth that much money.

I wonder how much of that is sour grapes on my part? Probably a healthy amount.

Funny, I noticed Bansky sold a painting to Brad Pitt.... appeared in a recent US magazine that my wife gets. Guess there's something to say about marketing. Reminds me of Fast Company's "Brand of You" feature story a number of years ago.

Hi Steven,

I looked up the article in question:
The Brand Called You-- it makes for an interesting read. I think I have a little work to do...(and you probably do too!)
