London graffiti wall sells for 208,000 pounds on eBay is not a given that Graffiti art is Vandalism.....there are actually places on the globe that see the Big Picture.... (<----joke) but that place ain't Tacoma. It could be Tacoma. But don't hold your breath. Too many people here are peeing in their pants.....big scaredy cats. The thing I hate most about Tacoma is its tiny parochial mindset. Have you never been to a Real Big City?
And this link here..right here will take you to RR and his witty colored crayons.

London graffiti wall sells for 208,000 pounds on eBay

LONDON (AFP) — A wall painted on by mysterious British graffiti artist Banksy painted sold for 208,100 pounds (275,750 euros, 407,000 dollars) on Monday, according to the results of an eBay auction.

The painting depicts a classical-looking artist in mostly-grey garb putting the finishing touches on a red large painting of the real artist's name.

It appeared in September on the wall outside a production company's office in Portobello Road, famous for its antiques and curios in Notting Hill, west London.

The sale on the Internet auction site attracted 69 bids, and the buyer now faces the additional charge of moving the work of art and replacing the wall.

And from the other side of the globe:

Oh Dear !!
