The Great Art Blowout Wrap-up!

December 23rd, 2009 | Posted in General

Thanks!The Great Art Blowout Sale was an overwhelming success. I listed 61 total pieces of original artwork all done for a particular client for the low, low price of $25.00 each, and sold all but 6 of them. The other people standing in line at the post office were not too happy with me when I lugged over 30 packages up to the counter the other day… 16 of which went to destinations outside the U.S. I heard a few “Bah, Humbugs!… and some other more colorful vernacular. Ah… the %$#@* Holiday Spirit!

All orders have been packaged and mailed, the final three going out today. The majority went out on Monday, so I would expect many of you will get them tomorrow or this weekend.

Thanks to everyone who responded so enthusiastically. Many bought multiple pieces (one person bought five!) and it was interesting to see which ones got the most interest. Several of the ones I considered my favorites were among the last to be ordered… shows what I know.

The purpose of the Great Art Blowout Sale was to a.) generate a little $$ and b.) clear out a little room in my studio flat files. This little firesale cleared out ONE drawer… I still have 11 others that are stuffed full of… stuff. Sometime in 2010 I’ll have “The Son of Great Art Blowout”, and this time there will be a lot of smaller spots from various MAD projects in the mix.

Thanks again to everyone who bought a piece of original art!


  1. Hey Tom I would pay for a sketch made by you. If I met you I’d run and ask for a caricature. Brazil loves your cartoons

  2. Tom,
    Got mine today
    One man’s junk is another man’s treasure
    Not that you think your work is junk after it get’s chronologically older
    No it increases in value
    you know what I mean
    Thank you
