Hi guys, I couldn't find if a thread concerning the closing prices of Old School Series 1 originals was started, and thought it would be good to have one.  

Figure we could track the roughs as well the paintings.  Not sure the best way to do it. Should we just screenshot the listing after it closes and post here?  Is there a better way?

The original painting for Kookle closed out earlier tonight, and I was surprised, as I believe it's commanded the most so far, even a bit more than "Gee Your Hair Smells Horrific".  Kookle is certainly one of my faves, but it hasn't appeared on too many other folks' fave lists, so I'd assumed it wouldn't go as high as "Gee".

I think it worked well in Greg's forum to have a thread called "Wacky Art" where we can include all series and all forms of Wacky art. I would also try to leave it up to someone in particular to keep track of the ebay closings because it's a lot of work to capture the info and images, upload them, post them, then find out one or two others already did it. I was cool with doing it in the other forum so I'm willing to do it here. How does this sound to everybody?

Just like this. The program is called Web Snapper and it's part of the new MacUpdate promo sale.

Sounds great!  Thanks for the willingness to do the work.  I've always thought it was great to have the record of past sales in the old forum.

Very curious, is there not enough snapper on the web that is already viewed that now we need a program for it?
