el Borto strikes again

Jason Bettineski posts pictures of awesome/weird/scary items he and his wife find at the aptly named Goodwill Goldmine. This is a ceramic version of what we can only guess might be Bart Simpson, or his nemesis from Shelbyville, Bort Sampson. According to Jason, the only thing more awe inspiring than the creative catharsis that spawned Bort Sampson is the idea crossed the mind of the artist before he/she donated it. It might have gone a little soemthing like this… “I shouldn’t throw this away, someone might want to buy it.” Reminds me of a little something Grover picked up for me at Good Will.


  1. Sooooo nice.
    I might show it to my son – but I know it will only confirm the fact that his father has hopeless readings (and pasttimes).
    BTW his name is Samson …

    I would have bought that too. I teach ceramics, and despite its ugly appearance, its pretty awesome! The eyes are creeping me out.

  3. I’ve come back to look at this thing at least 5 times today!
