I don't know how many of you posted your work at Saatchi's gallery site. There were 400 when I posted the info here. There are 10,000 now. That's still not bad odds. Better than the lotto. And Saatchi is making his own shortlist to purchase (I'm going to wait 6 months first, he says.).

Meantime there's a show this October drawn from the site. So join it now. And vote for whomever you want in it as well.

SAATCHI SITE: We've selected a shortlist of 30 people from the thousands on display on the Your Gallery website.
We want you to choose your three favourite artists: the 10 most popular will feature in a special show being held at the Guardian's Newsroom (London newspaper)exhibition space on October 24-28 2006.

Here's how:

· Preview the shortlisted works in our online slideshow

· Find out more about each artist by looking at the profiles page

· Place your vote and be in with a chance of winning tickets to an exclusive preview of the show on October 23 2006,,-908,00.html

Funny that most of the artists on Saatchi's short list appear to be highly skilled in realist painting while his own stable is full of crap that a kindergarten student could do, but we're talking about Mr Wax's piece here. The funniest part about that is the artist's name.

i suppose the difference between saatchi's own choices and these are that among the jurors were artists marc quinn and cornelia parker and the curator from white cube gallery.

anyway, i think it's still an easy way to display your work online and maybe even get noticed in an international context.

Thanks for posting Neil's work, detroitarts!
Hmm... yes, this has nothing to do with the saatchi site, and yes, Wax is his real name.
Anyway, I don't want to perpetuate the digressing comments, so I will stay on point:
Neil's work is funny in person too, so if you are in LA, please stop by - show ends October 7. This particular piece sold but there is a mini version available too. Check it out!
