One Thousand Paintings

File under: why didn’t I think of that? Paint 1000 paintings, each with a unique number from 1 to 1000 and let the number and demand determine the price of each painting. It sort of bothers me (not that he’s doing anything wrong, more power to you for the idea and follow-through) that people are willing to pay between $68 and $684 for what amounts to being a part of an idea (and the only tangible representation is a 12×12″ “painting” of a stenciled number set in the typeface Myriad Pro Bold.) It’s not for me, but great idea. (via swissmiss)
