    Thomas Kinkaide scams art gallery

    via The SF Chronicle via the AV Club

    Also of interest from a 2006 article by the LA Times:

    Dandois recounted that about six years ago the artist was so intoxicated during a performance by Siegfried & Roy in Las Vegas that people seated nearby moved away from him.

    "I think it was Roy or Siegfried or whatever had a codpiece in his leotards," Dandois testified. "And so when the show started, Thom [Kinkade] just started yelling, 'Codpiece, codpiece,' and had to be quieted by his mother and Nanette."


    How am I not surprised?

    If Kinkade didn't exist, the people buying Kinkade stuff now would be buy some other equally as maligned thing from some other person.

    It would probably have eagles. Or wolves.

    for some odd reason i thought this story was going to have a punch-line, where it turned out that Kinkade was a fictional character, invented by another artist, who is an atheist ....
    and that was the "scam"


    i like my version better

    Well, you have to admit that the "Codpiece, codpiece" thing was pretty close.
