Look at what I found on Etsy today…an original Marilyn “Monore” pencil drawing. If you’re anything like me, you’re likely saying to yourself: Who the hell is Marilyn Monore??!? Well, look at the picture above, and maybe it’ll clue you in. Still nothing? Yeah, me neither!
Clearly the seller is equally talented at both spelling and drawing, because I’m guessing that’s supposed to be a drawing of Marilyn Monroe. I’ve stared and stared at it, and I don’t see it at all. The best I can come up with is the lady in the drawing looks like someone from a Clairol commercial from the 70’s…you know, because of the awesome “winged hair” she’s working there.
Can someone please tell me what the hell is with the wonk-ass eye she drew? One’s looking right at ya, and the other is trying to sneak a look at your shoes. It’s all over the place!
The only thing this woman got remotely right is the dot she used for the mole Marilyn Monroe had on her face…or that could just be a crumb she dropped on the picture before she took it. Taking into account the precision used to create this fine artwork, I am going with the latter.
The seller continues her anti-correct-spelling spree in her description with the following sentence: Getting away form the vintage this is a pencil drawing I did of Marilyn Monore. Holy Christ, would someone buy this woman a friggin spell checker please? Not only does she say “form” rather than “from”, but she continues to call her Marilyn “Monore” throughout the entire ad! Also, I’m guessing that she has never heard of that new fangled thing called a comma that the rest of us use when we write.
The kicker for me was that if you order one, you’re not getting an original. Rather you will get the original she drew, then scaned it onto HP glossy brillante photo sheet for a glossy finish to the drawing. (Holy shit, did you catch that? More misspellings!!! I copied and pasted that part for your further enjoyment!) Anyway, back to the description…So she’s going to send people this shit on a glossy papered copy?!? You can’t even get the original, huh? I’m sure she’s got it safely locked up somewhere, just in case she hits it big and has to loan it out to all of the big galleries.
Did I mention she’s charging $10.00 plus another $2.00 for shipping for this shit? This lady has some set of balls on her to even think she’s going to make a sale here.
Pencil Drawing of Marilyn “Monore”… between the artwork itself and the spelling that comes with it…That’s Shitsy…and then some!
