Photo Of Potato Sells For Over $1 Million
Seriously! After reading the story of how a photo of a potato taken by celebrity photographer Kevin Abosch sold for $1 million Euros, I have decided to take a stab at the art market myself.
Instead of a photo of an Irish spud (like that featured in the photo), I thought a hand drawn rendering of an iconic American toy would be more suitable for the open market. I call it, "Mr. Potato Head with Broken Pinky #1." It will be the only one of it's kind and will not be featured in a series or re-printed. Who knows, maybe after a few drinks, a wealthy pharmaceutical CEO will purchase it and then threaten to erase me from the art world. One could only hope.
