Time For a Bit of eBay Heckling -
Whoo-wee... Haven't seen one of these for sale in a while.
Another original up for sale -
The Reluctant Goddess
Show - Juxtapoz 10th Anniversary Group Show
Dates - April 1 to 30, 2004
Gallery - 111 Minna Gallery, San Francisco, California
eBay Auction #3735488924 - "SHAG Original Painting - The Reluctant Goddess"
Auction Started - Jul-08-04 22:19:31 PDT
Auction Ends - Jul-18-04 22:19:31 PDT
Seller - musiqueplus
Opening Price - $4,999.99
(Seller musiqueplus put the "A is for Alligator" original up for sale four times with no luck due to his/her very unrealistic prices. Is $4,999.99 a realistic price for this 11-1/2" x 24-1/2" painting? We'll see.)
What's so special about these "SHAG Pink Panther Promo Poster/Print *RARE*" that eBay seller "tinyearle" has been selling?
eBay #3732367520 went for $40.00 on 23 Jun
eBay #3732523702 went for $82.51 on 30 June
eBay #3734041569 went for $142.50 on 08 July
These are promo posters, looking at what eBay seller "tinyearle" either works at a record store (or radio station) or knows someone who does. Labels send scads of promo crap to record stores/radio stations (a legal version of pay-o-la) - go hassle your local independent record store (or local college radio station), I bet they have a stack of them tucked in a closet.
Hassle those slackers, make sure to ask them if they have any copies of Stevie Wonder's "I Just Called To Say I Love You" too!
On that note, who's buying the framed mini prints (and framed coasters) out there? Take a framing class, buy some of Shag's art books, and save yourself some $$$!
(Not a paid promotion, but Overstock.com has Shag's art books for CHEEP!)
I had a dream last night about what Shag's painting for Copro Nason's "Age of Aquarius" Group Show (opening next Saturday, 17 Jul) would look like. Unfortunately I think it involved the "American Tribal Love-Rock Musical".
Anyone out there have any ideas? Hopefully none that involve synthesized pan-flutes?
