Rock Star of the Art World

Thought this might delight you. I came across a full-page ad for the artist Michael Godard while paging through Skymall magazine on a Delta flight. Apparently he's "known as the 'Rock Star of the Art World' and "is currently the #1 best selling artist in the U.S." Then, "Godard's world of art invites us in to his lighthearted perspective of life that surrounds us, mirroring our lives through martinis with animated olives, drunken grapes, dancing strawberries, including his own vices of gambling and the good life."

The biography escalates until it hits this last line: "Today Michael Godard is considered one of the most prolific and influential artists of our time."

Everything on his site is amusingly depressing.

That's all.
