    unless you regularly check ebay for old paint, you're probably not familiar with the phenomenon that is no name motherfuckers trying to pimp themselves on ebay, posing as super famous writers.
    now, maybe they are and i'm just completely out of the loop, but i've never heard of any of the fools that post up on there with some 'ill write your name in graffiti for $_____. or offer canvases, of their name (which ive never heard of) to the highest bidder.
    maybe it's just me, but the way i look at it... quit trying to hamburger pimp, sucker. if you're cope, and you want to get over by selling $400 canvases, fine, you've earned that right. but if you're some fucking no name dude from no name no-where, why the fuck are you trying to sell your shit for $20, to a bunch of people that could give a fuck less?
    anyway, i just wanted to share that.
    if anyone would like to get an idea of what i'm talking about. go to ebay and type in 'krylon'.

    (dont bother typing in graffiti you'll get a million dudes trying to sell led zeppelin albums and boring old movies)

    I think whats worse is when a well known writer i.e. Mear does something like give his stickers to a gallery at a really low price, like a couple of bucks for a pack and then signs the pack and then next thing you know someone picks up the sticker pack and sells it on ebay for 60 or 70 dollars. Not only does the artist get cut out of the money, but the idiot on ebay gets ripped off.. shit sucks.

    (I saw a packet of his stickers selling for 8 dollars at a gallery a little while ago, saw them on ebay at 60 - claiming they were " Exclusive and a once in a life time deal.")

    I guess I dont mind them selling their shit that much, but what I DO mind is them listing every fucking thing from a trucker hat to a page from a sketch book under the keyword "Krylon" or "Rust Oleum". I have to scroll through three pages of bullshit with like 10 can listings mixed in between. Fucking drives me crazy.
