Amazon Listed 22” x 30”, 300gsm Fabriano Paper Packs of 50 for $5.68 & Artists Went Crazy.

Packs consisting of 50 sheets of Fabriano cold press paper usually run for nearly 500 dollars but, yesterday, Amazon - for some reason unknown to me - was selling them for $5.68 (The original listing has been deleted, but thankfully I took screenshots!).  Someone out there noticed this in the Internet art community and from there it exploded as artists across the United States rushed to buy what hopefully would be enough paper to last the rest of their careers for only six dollars.  (One artist friend mentioned to me that he bought $120 worth of the six dollar paper or 1000 sheets.)

Today the price has been fixed and the original listing removed but the paper is currently the #1 bestseller in Arts, Crafts and Sewing.  It’s yet to be determined if my order along with the thousands of other artist’s orders will be shipped as the orders are being fulfilled not by Amazon but Blick Art Materials.

UPDATE: Blick Art Materials has canceled all orders as of 3:00PM Central Standard Time, September 18th 2014.

How Do I Land?

Comedian Kurt Braunohler (He’s on Tumblr) hired a pilot to do some brilliant sky graffiti over LA which was funded by his Kickstarter Campaign.  Apparently there’s more on the way!

Sometimes I like to step out from behind the curtain and voice my opinion on certain cultural and political topics. Here today to do it for me is Patton Oswalt speaking on gay marriage and the Bible. Thanks Patton.
