Available on eBay: an acrylic Philippe by Achewood creator Chris Onstad, who writes:

This is the first-ever public sale of an original Achewood painting, painted by Achewood creator Chris Onstad (me) in his fancy studio (couch, watching Monk). Acrylic paint on sturdy canvas board, Gesso sealed. Imagine if I ever become famous, you can say that you own the first painting I ever offered for public sale, and come back to eBay and hock it for large beans. Or, keep it, because it is a nice painting of a nice boy. Lots of art is mad and weird, but this is pretty happy on the whole. I kind of think it represents all of the hope I have for the Universe.

Current top bid: $US330, and destined for way higher.

That's why I'm not even trying to bid, I know that sucker's going to bring in more $$$ than I have to spend.

I wish that was bigger or less expensive. Says something about Achewood fans that it's up to $380.

I'm still creeped out by Nice Pete's last blog entry. That can't be good news for someone.

Philippe will be mine - oh yes he will be mine!

I'm still waiting for Lie Bot's blog. Which I guess is as lame as wanting Ralph Malph to get his own show.
