    Default George Zimmerman Sells Ironic Artwork on eBay, Turns out to be Unoriginal

    George Zimmerman Is Selling Insanely Ironic Artwork on eBay




    Less than a week after the latest weapon-involved domestic violence charges against George Zimmerman were dropped at the behest of his victim-slash-girlfriend, the perennial troublemaker-slash-black-teen-killer is back in the headlines today, but this time he's showcasing his softer, more artistic side.


    According to a report since confirmed by his brother Robert, Zimmerman has put some original artwork up for auction on eBay under the name "therealgeorgez."


    "God, One Nation, with Liberty and Justice for All," reads the impressively tone-deaf painting.


    In the item's description, Zimmerman explains the impetus behind the impromptu art sale:


    Everyone has been asking what I have been doing with myself. I found a creative, way to express myself, my emotions and the symbols that represent my experiences. My art work allows me to reflect, providing a therapeutic outlet and allows me to remain indoors :-) I hope you enjoy owning this piece as much as I enjoyed creating it. Your friend, George Zimmerman
    With nearly five days left, the painting already has already racked up seven bids, the highest being $212.50.


    God bless America :-(

    Link to the auction. The bid is up to $100,000 now.

    BUT:

    UPDATE: ‘Original’ George Zimmerman Painting On eBay Appears Lifted From Getty Images, DU

    Over a decade ago we purchased this image from PhotoDisc (now Getty Images) for about $20…



    And used it on the T-shirts we gave to DU donors…
    But if you zoom in a bit…
    And give it a little photoshop magic…





    Apparently it’s now worth around $100,000!
    Well, well! I wonder if anyone has alerted eBay that Zimmy is peddling a great big copyright-infringing bogus “original” work of art?


    Stay tuned… this could get really interesting really fast.


    17 Dec 2013, 03:00amEST: The painting by Trayvon Martin’s cold-blooded assassin shooter George Zimmerman is an exercise in post-Warholian patriotic kitsch:


    George Zimmerman is taking eBay by storm while armed with only a paintbrush.
    Bidding wars over an original painting crafted by the former neighborhood cop is raising tens of thousands of dollars in just its first few hours listed for sale.
    The signed painting of a blue American flag was listed Monday with a starting bid of $50 before skyrocketing to more than $99,000 while under the username ‘theRealGeorgeZ.’
    Zimmerman’s brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr., confirmed the artwork’s authenticity to MyNews13.
    “Everyone has been asking what I have been doing with myself. I found a creative, way to express myself, my emotions and the symbols that represent my experiences,” Zimmerman allegedly wrote with the item’s listing.
    Well, golly, isn’t that special! Though we bet he would’ve nabbed twice the haul if he’d instead used the words “STAND YOUR GROUND“.

    I vaguely remember some Chicago mob boss got away with murder, but got done in by the IRS? Perhaps this murderer's copyright infringement and false intellectual property claim will, ironically, be the first big step of his undoing? I can only hope.

    What a fine, upstanding citizen. Has this fat-fucker been out of trouble since he killed Trayvon?

    From what I've read, Zimmerman was only hit in the face with broken windshield glass. The other guy has a long-standing dispute with Zimmerman and fired at him.

    I've never hated somebody that I didn't personally know, but I hate this man. He's a sick piece of shit menace. God, I can't believe I could wish this, but I fucking wish he'd been shot in the face.

    I know, right? I feel the same way and then I'm even more angered because I feel that way.

    His time will come. We've seen several incidences with him involving guns and violence since the bullshit verdict, he can only escape so many times. Remember OJ.
