Buy Ted Rall On eBay

LA Times (among other places) cartoonist Ted Rall is apparently fed up with the pay grade in the media world. So he’s taking a new tact–auctioning his services to the highest bidder online.

Writes Rall: “You can be an individual or the editor of a huge newspaper. Either way, I’m auctioning off the right to commission a cartoon about any topic. You get the right to print or post the art AND you get the original artwork. I’ve just posted it to eBay.”

Rall started the bidding at 99 cents. He’s up to $202.50. “Still a bargain” as he puts it. Place your bid here.
