Would you like a couch with that painting? Obscurity is a way of life for Gavin Vonn Getch, a painter who works at a frame shop in a small New England town. His life changes when billionaire Gary Eastman enters his shop and becomes the ultimate patron: a lifetime commission for all his work in exchange for a crap-load of money. Some of his artist buddies envy him and others think he's sold out. Curious as to where his paintings are being displayed, he makes a trip to the DLC headquarters, where a shocking discovery forces him to reevaluate his deal with Eastman and his identity as an artist. Why does an artist create? What alternatives are there to completely selling out? Is there no genius - only marketing? The book is a satirical and sometimes surreal look at the art world. The book is read by the author, along with 40 different voice actors for each of the different characters. This is not a radio drama, there are no annoying sound effects or distracting background ambiance. The dialogue in the animated book trailer was created from this audiobook.
