With the deep red and orange, it is clear that it is not a flattering portrayal of her, but it does look a lot like her.  He's actually a pretty good artist.  The use of shadows, the proportions are pretty good.  Much better than I expected.  And if he can get $100K a pop, he should do a lot more of them.

offacue: fark the farking fark out of autoplay video links


I'll keep posting this as a public service:

http://internet.wonderhowto.com/how-to/disable-annoying-autoplay-med ia -chrome-firefox-safari-and-internet-explorer-0139641/

Just disable auto-play videos in your browser.  The only downside is that you have one extra click to play YouTube videos, but it's farking worth it to save the aggravation.  Instead of an auto-play video, you get a plugin box you have to click to play.

meathome: Nabb1: That's a tad unflattering.

I'm not a fan of this, but if it's helping him to get the anger out... more power to him.

As for the image itself, it's a better representation than I would have expected.  I'm not sure if the quote is accurate, but regardless of which side of the camp you were on here, it's an accurate statement.

Regardless, this is a higher form of trollery than I have seen in quite some time.


Well, he's wise to move fast. Right now, his window of opportunity is open, and he can make money off his notoriety - and would be a fool not too. He doesn't really know how long he can keep that window open, at least not without getting himself into more trouble than it's worth - the eye of the media is fickle. He's smart to be gathering roses while he can.

I was reading an article here the other day about lLndsay Lohan - and how upscale clubs in London are paying her 5-10-15 thousand bucks a night just to hang out in their clubs. And then I went on to read that that isn't even much - cast members of Jersey Shore regularly pull down 25 for doing the same thing. And I realized - there are a lot of ways that any kind of fame or notoriety can be directly converted into money today.
What I took away was this - if you are a contemporary American, and find yourself in the public eye, it's worth a significant amount of money for every day you can stay that way - famous or notorious - it makes no difference as long as they are all talking about you.
This only used to work for people whose lives revolved around fame, like rock stars or movie stars - but now, any schmoe who gets his name in the papers can convert it into coin by a wide variety of means.
We are in for a future that consists of mostly of this. Get used to it.

ongbok: Zimmerman sold another painting on eBay last month, with a winning bid of $100,099.99.

Christ, the racist sure will break themselves to support this asshole.


I was so amazed at the bidding that I went and looked at the auction on ebay when it was somewhere above $90,000.  All of the high bidders were virtually brand new and none had a purchase history of more than one or two previous items.  I couldn't help but assume that they were fake profiles, and frankly assumed that at least one of them belonged to Zimmerman himself. I'm pretty skeptical that anyone paid him a dime for that thing.

Evil Mackerel: Gets sued for slander..5..4..3..


I'm thinking more along the lines of:  Gets sued for copyright infringement in ...5..4..3...

Whoever is the photographer/copyright owner of the original photograph from which it was copied has every right to sue him for the profits, and if registered with the Copyright Office they can seek additional damages + attorney fees.

BTW, just because there was a winning bid of $100,000+ on Ebay for his last masterpiece does not mean he actually collected the money on it.

lawboy87: Whoever is the photographer/copyright owner of the original photograph from which it was copied has every right to sue him for the profits, and if registered with the Copyright Office they can seek additional damages + attorney fees.

Anyone has the right to sue for anything.  Winning however is a different story, and far from a sure thing.

It may be that because she's a public figure and that was taken from a public spectacle that the copyright wouldn't hold much water.  May not be any "damages" at all.


If there is a copyright, it belongs to the photographer or his agency - not the prosecutor, who is a public figure, and does not own her image. and the photographer has no reason to sue unless there is real money in it.
And Zimmerman altered the image considerably, with a demonstrable aesthetic and artistic intent ( however crappy it may be).
I don't see it.

That explains why he draws his gun and waves it around his GF every so often, gotta get him some fresh headlines so he can sell him some paintings!


Yeah, but that's not a long term strategy - the law of averages will catch up with him, and he doesn't need to be a genius to know that. His best strategy is to milk everything he can from his notoriety until it dries up, and then disappear with the proceeds and invest them wisely. And if he really is just some poor dumb bastard who got a series of incredibly bad breaks, that's what he'll do.
I would like to think that he is, and that he will - but, we'll see.

I had assumed that was an expression of his own views, and not a quote from her. However, the way it's presented on the picture it does look as if he's implying she said it.

Gotta give it to him. He is an awful person, but his troll-fu is strong.


the american flag adorned with the phrase 'one nation under god with liberty and justice for all,' the prosecutor he beat who apparently had 'this much respect for american judicial system.' he's literally painting (by numbers) himself as a hero, which is what his supporters see him as. the fact that this all came about because he followed and then killed a kid who had popped down the store is something he has chosen not to dwell upon in 'his' creative 'works' in his effort to cash in. where does he go next? a painting of the body with zimmerman raising his hands to the heavens and some comment about martin having had it coming to him from god? hmm, gis turns up no results for that one, so probably not

"he" takes a photo- blows it up-then shops it to a line drawing then paints by numbers.
and by "he" I mean someone he hires and pays a percentage cut to,probably signing them to an nda.
