Described as being done in the "manner of Bill Traylor", this picture of a green monster (or a fish) is up on ebay at the moment with a Buy It Now price of $15,000. It's easy to see how the artist was influenced by Traylor's primitive and folk work, using the simplistic boarders and not precise use of shading to evoke a primal sense of a more simplistic desire that's inherent in us all, a sort of yearning for a simpler time. Or it was drawn by a three year old. The back of the image also shows the artist's first attempt at drawing the outline, along with some sticky tape.
