must be fucking nice
"A sketch which artist Damien Hirst gave to a taxi driver as a tip for a £20 journey could be worth thousands, experts believe.
Hirst drew the picture for cabbie Jon Horsley during a 30-minute trip from Chelsea Harbour to Mayfair 18 months ago. The pair chatted and discovered that they shared an interest in comic illustrations and Hirst began doodling the shark and diamond skull - two of his most famous works.
The drawing is now set to be sold at auction where it is estimated to reach £5000."
sure why not?
nice for the cabbie. but really, wtf? who would pay for that?
i wouldn't sell it until after hirst dies, that cabbie is nuts
if I only knew sooner
My wife and I drew a bartender and he gave us free mini-margaritas.
i've heard stories about Picasso doing this sort of thing as well. it makes a bit more sense though for him seeing as he was known for his line making abilities. Hirst's sketch on the other is a complete piss... and of his most famous works none-the-less. I'm a fan of his work, but i hope this came from some imposter pulling a fast one on a cabbie for his sake.
the guy cant draw FFS!
art is what you can get away with™
