In April 2013 Dick Frizzell carries the original of this famous painting, which was up for auction. It had originally been bought for $4,000 in 1995. Frizzell spent time in an advertising agency and his art reflected an awareness of urban popular culture by calling on popular symbols. This particular image was reproduced many times, both in the form of prints and also on T-shirts. At the auction in 2013 it sold for $110,215.
