We’re big fans of David Shrigley (see past post). That’s why we’re tickled pink to see a coffee mug on eBay this morning with one of his tenderly bleak illustrations. The cup reads: Six Lumps of Sugar, Fifty Cups Like This Per Day - Don’t Tell Me I Can’t. The eBay seller posts the mug with a note: “This edition by David Shrigley is the perfect way to drink your copious amounts of super sweet tea”. Whatever you decide, just grab the mug right here.

Antonio Lopez

Not only a talented artist, Lopez was credited for having discovered some of the industry’s first supermodels, such as Tina Chow, Grace Jones, Jessica Lange, and Jerry Hall, whom he lived with in Paris at the start of her career.

This brand new, 1st edition commemorative Gianni Versace memorial book from 1997 is an unbelievable example of the obscure, seriously one-of-a-kind gems you can find on eBay. By no means widely produced, the book was given out as a gift after a memorial service held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art following the famed designer’s tragic passing.

Consider it a precious gift for any Versace fan. Click here to see it on eBay.

Gladys Perint Palmer 
This sketch — completed with ink, paint, pastels, and glitter, no less — of a Christian Lacroix look circa 2009 is simply to die for. It’s no surprise, really, given Palmer’s impressive resume. The artist has worked with everyone from the New York Times to the Museum of Modern Art and countless top-notch publications in between.

Here I had them on backwards AND I had the "manly" part in back. OOPS!" — (eBay Seller, Miss candy-land, May 29, 2010)
