Q: How do you know when you are a famous artist?

A: When you find your artwork being copied by a bunch of unknown artists somewhere in China.

I stumbled across this website today as I was researching an upcoming project.  As far as I can tell you can order an original, hand-painted copy of your favorite artist for under $300.

This intrigues me.  If I were to commission them to make me a painting, I think I would give them a REAL challenge; make them really work for their money.  I’d have them paint something intricate and detailed, something that would require a couple of years of effort, such as a page from the Book of Kells.

I’d like to see somebody paint this for $300.
