Just when you thought Pancake-themed political artist Dan Lacey couldn't top his Obama bear wrestling piece, witness this: Gawker Media overlord Nick Denton, with pancakes on his head. This is for sale to the public.
Lacey, our favorite American artist of the Hope Era, just finished this masterwork today. Each pancake represents one blog in Denton's buttery, syrupy media empire. The painting is now listed on eBay, at a starting bid of $0.99. How high could this work go? No amount would surprise me, frankly. It would be quite a coup for Graydon Carter or Tina Brown to have this one hanging on the office wall. Bid now. [Faithmouse.com]
