I thought about asking him why he wasn't going to sell them off on eBay to any price in order to pay back the people he owes money to... but then I was afraid I would get kicked out of the group.

Bah, someone will always create a new Zuckerface group.  I say go for it!

What a wackadoodle. Someone pays you $240 for a drawing, crank it out. Good lordy, Jack Kirby and John Byrne used to crank out 60-100 full blown pages in a month. Just sit down and do it.

It blows my mind indeed.  JUST DO IT.  Instead he spent his time drawing stuff to later rip up.

Reminds me a little of someone else here (who is no longer here) who seemed like a real good dude from his posts and when we would PM about New Orleans and the art world, but he was at least apologetic. This guy not so much, he is flaunting the fact that he is sticking it to all these people.

I worked full time and drew comics 8 hours a day when I got home-all commissions were usually finished within an hour.  I'm not a professional I guess.

This sounds vaguely familiar.  I'm not going to look it up, but I seem to remember Castrillo ripping up completed/partially completed art and posting the photos here back when he posted here and sold commissions for signature series.  This was 5+ years ago.  Seems like an attempt at grabbing attention to me.

This goes along with him ripping up his sketch covers.

Temper tantrum.

Missed out on his little tantrum but I still see him listing things for sale in different FB groups routinely.  I just think back to this thread and the old one from the Sig room where he ripped off everyone.  Its sad that he can continue on after all that he's done.

Rpping up sketch covers and drawing a big middle finger on the covers over the characters. 

Priceless

Its looks like it’s  finally coming back around to him.

With that said, I don't get giving a 4th tier kind of generic artist $240 for this when there is decent OA out there. I just missed a Byrne submariner page for about that much and another 150 would have gotten me a nice colan dracula page (1990s dark horse, not 70s marvel), but to each his own. I spent less than half that getting two really cool paintings from Christian slade, our very own darth corgi (and a published comic artist in his own right, just not a Big 2 published one...)

Could not have said it any better.

Not only that, it looks like most of the images are copied, if not traced, right? I mean, I could justify paying a lot to even an unknown artist if I felt their stuff was original and exciting, but this stuff I figure most of you guys could trace for me.

That is hardly uncommon. You don't think Alex Ross does that too?
