FFfAW — Imagine Dragons

A50CC291-3C2B-4117-B483-4FA3F86887A4“Hey Craig. How did it go at the show?”

“Oh hello, Frank,” Craig responded. “It went okay, I suppose. I did sell the dragons, both of them, to one buyer.”

“That’s terrific, Craig,” Frank said. “But you don’t seem that psyched about having sold them.”

“Yeah, well I was hoping to get a little more money for the dragons,” Craig explained. “They took me a long time to weld and I was looking forward to having some rich collector, you know, an aficionado of metalwork or something, express an interest in my work and maybe even become my patron who would fund my future work.”

“But you did say you sold them both to one buyer. So why so glum?”

“Because the guy who bought them owns Norstar, the recycling place out on Dohertys Road.”

“What’s wrong with that?” Frank asked.

Craig sighed. “Norstar’s a freakin’ junk yard in the middle of nowhere. Nobody’s gonna see them. My dragons deserve better, like to be in a museum or at a public plaza, you know.”

    And like most cases, the artist dies in a horrid welding accident brought on by his mental illness and the value of his pieces skyrocket in value. The guys at Norstar sell their dragons and make millions!

    So sad that his beautiful sculpted dragons are going to be scrap metal! Great story!

    I hope the guy from Norstar doesn’t decide just to scrap them too! Poor artist.

      Thanks. At least someone did buy his stuff, so there’s that.

    I think they are actually perfectly placed, especially for others who might be interested in the art.
