    Has anyone heard about this yet? After reading several articles on it I saw that one of the articles mentioned that someone had found the original photo that was used in George Zimmerman's painting which can be seen here:

    http://www.shutterstock.com/pic-746...can-flag.html?src=KLr3GZGKl8tVnF9W86-I7g-1-88

    His Ebay Listing here:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/George-Zimmerman-original-painting-/111239922810

    Video of someone comparing his painting to the stock photo:



    Regardless of his past, when I think of the word original I think of everything was done from scratch, entirely your own idea. I feel this is somewhat misleading to bidders. I looked up the word original in the dictionary and one of the definitions was: "being the first instance or source from which a copy, reproduction, or translation is or can be made"

    Anyways, what are you feelings on this? Do you think he should at least change the title?

    Look at the questions & answers. It says
    Q: We all think a lot of you Zimm and hope the best for you!I may bid on your painting at the last min.How will you ship the picture,can it be picked up local?I would be driving from Arkansas
    A: The price it is at now has well exceeded my $.99 minimum; therefore, whoever wins within the Continental United States, will receive this painting delivered by me personally. Your friend,

    I'd say the bids are false, just to fuck up the auction.
    Surely nobody would pay that amount...

    The account was created just a few days ago and he has 0 seller feedback.
    I bet this is not even the real George. Someone pulling a con pretending to be the real guy to try
    to get a ridiculous amount of money for a shitty painting.

    Unfortunately it is him. One of the news outlets has verified the authenticity of the listing:

    "MyNews13 in Orlando reports that it has verified authenticity of the listing with Zimmerman's brother, Robert Zimmerman, Jr."

    It's not that they want the painting. The bids are a show of support. Happens all the time. Haven't you ever followed an auction on ebay that went viral, and what was up for sale was something as simple as a child's drawing?

    Of course it's him, and it's not about the painting. My goodness. How do some of you succeed in business when you don't follow trends? Everyone in IM should know internet trends like the back of their hands. Things like this happened ten years ago on ebay. It's nothing new.

    I wonder if the same people who would buy this painting, are also the same people who would consider buying used underwear from Casey Anthony.
