What’s Wrong With Muriel Puce?

Good friend and sometime Cereal Box reader Lauren did me a total solid last week and asked for use of two of my photos in Get:Art, a fundraiser for Project Angel Food, a Los Angeles nonprofit that delivers meals to people with terminal illnesses. I like Lauren and am all for helping those with horrible diseases, so I was happy to donate the follow images for her to frame, place on a wall and sell as a means of raising money.

They’re apparently priced at $100 or so each, which I’m kind of astounded by. It’s the highest monetary value anybody’s ever put on my artistic efforts. It’s also the first time anything I’ve ever done has been exhibited in any kind of art-ish forum, so hurray for that. I might just have to head down south — if not just for this, then for Hilly’s submission, which I’m told implements some image of me into a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

  1. i wish we'd thought of this earlier, your blog prob could have lured in countless other artists to donate. if there are any last minute submissions out there, go to the get:art link and contact lauren stat!!

    and fyi, the pricing is tiered, like $100, $250, $500 etc. $100 is the lowest tier, but i have a feeling yours would/may go for even higher, depending on how they end up pricing them. the prints look fantastic.
