Money making Art !

Money making Art is "My" Art making money just being Art!

I'll explain, I donated a work of Art about four years ago to an Aids Charity to be auctioned, it sold for about seventeen thousand dollars at that time, and was a nice little addition to the funds for the Charity, i was amazed myself, that was much more money than i had anticipated it would auction for!

So it was bought, sat on by the new owners for four years or so, then found it's way to be auctioned in Dallas,TX earlier this year, and was bought, although i can't be 100% certain as it was a phone bidder i was told who bought the drawing title "All the ladies loved John Holmes' big banana" for seventy thousand, not bad for money making Art,

I've put a copy on my website.

Try getting a return on investment from a Bank or anywhere ,(except maybe fake pharmaceuticals, or illicit drugs) like that in four years, from ZERO value to seventy thousand dollars, if that couldn't be described as "Money making Art", i don't know what can!

i never got any money though John, so i never saw any appreciation in value. I gave, or donated for Auction with no demand from the Aids Organization for any money in return. The Organization and their volunteers do way more in heart, spirit, and energy than anything i could do. i was amazed myself John when it sold,but four years ago i hadn't been banned from Wikipedia either, unlike today!
now that is just amazing....How did you manage to get such value for your work James?
