    My find of the year....

    Original Post

    Picked up this artwork today, mainly because I thought it was ridiculous.

    Turns out it is a fairly highly sought after print of a controversial civil rights drawing, done in 1968.

    The only way to beat what just happened up there is if someone thrifts an actual live vicuña

    JV competition or not, @hooker4186 , don't sell yourself short. That is, indeed, one hell of a find. Had I seen that in a store, I would have had to reach for the nearest Robert Graham shirt.

    Lots of cool stuff @capnwes .

    I like the idea of people posting their favorite finds of the year, even if not as entries.
