Since I was one of the lucky ones that scored a nice card from johnthebadgers
I thought it would be nice to pay it forward.
I have 5 show cards of the Connor Brothers
Rather large - 21 x 21 cm - so nice to display if that floats your boat.
Anyone can join in , BUT
1. the first 5 that send me a PM will get one - 5 are in - DONE DEAL, sorry
2. IF you want to chip in for the actual shipping costs (NL 1,50 / Worldwide 3,00)Of course I have an extra one reserved for met , since I can't bear the thought he would miss out on these and miss the opportunity to add this to his collection as the new crown jewel.
Shipping on me.
Although your gesture is generous and much appreciated, I already own a similar image in large format (see below). Made it myself.
Since becoming an artist, thinking of original or fresh ideas has been very difficult for me. I also quickly realised I had zero artistic skill.
But none of this was ever a hurdle in the contemporary art world. My resourcefulness and ability to spot an opportunity were more important. Along with large numbers of reliably-undemanding buyers.
Indeed, now I just follow The Connor Brothers Recipe
. Simple. Easy. And it saves me huge amounts of time and effort — time and effort far better spent on spending all of the money I earn from sales.THE CONNOR BROTHERS RECIPE1. Steal somebody else's artwork. [Clark Hulings, circa 1957]2. Steal somebody else's quote. [Courtesy of The Tempest]3. Mix with a dash of Photoshop.4. Presto and voilà!
Now print off endless copies, sign as your own, and sell to the ignorant or undiscerning.
And here is my own artwork
(referred to above), which I created using the same process:
Title: We Pretend We're Laughing With You
Medium: Giclée print on paper
Signed, dated and numbered by the artist
Dimensions: 166 x 106 cm
Edition number 1 of 150 is staying in my personal collection.
The remainder will soon be available for sale to VVIPs — including select online galleries, and Instagram influencers who communicate by using loads of those red heart and fire emojis in succession.
Just in case that sixth show card
is still available, perhaps it could go to another forum member. One who, in this thread
and in 50 words or less, answers the following question:
Why does being an informed art collector matter?
If there are multiple entries, maybe the winner could be selected by a comedian.
