  • Wants For Sale
  • In July 2007, my wife, Christine, and I started Wants For Sale. We paint things that we want, then sell the painting for the price of the real item. So you can buy A Wii for $270.92 or a Slice of Pepperoni for $3. When the painting sells we go out and buy that thing. 

    In the first two weeks, over 40,000 people visited the site and the project has since been featured in Daily Candy, NPR, GOOD, The New York Times Magazine as well as blogs and newspapers worldwide. So far, we've gotten everything from a plate of Buffalo Wings to a full Vegas Vacation.

  • Right before the election, in October 2008, we realized we really wanted "President Barack Obama." So we painted his presidential portrait and created 100 signed and numbered prints. All people had to do to get a print was donate $100 to his campaign (Republicans only had to donate $50). In the few weeks prior to the election we were able to raise over $7000 for Obama's campaign. There are a few remaining prints available here.
