Kevin Eastman just sold his original art from the first issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for $250,000.
Yes, you counted those zeros correctly. He figured he'd put it on Ebay with an outrageous reserve and see if it got any bites. It got 47 bites and sold for over a quarter of a million dollars.
As a comic fan, I gotta say, that is cool. Especially since comic and toon art in the local Arts and Science art show tends to get more snickers than praise.
I mean come on, all those paintings and photos are REAL art Tom, you're stuff is JUST cartoons.
Those turtles are just cartoons too. Really good toons.
I took my youngest son to see TMNT last weekend and though the plot is a little confusing and it's not as funny as it should have been, overall it's a good little film and a hell of a lot better than Secret of the Ooze. I like parts I and III, but that film with Vanilla Ice - sucks.
