Check out this map: http://hyperallergic.com/169429/the-mos ... g-to-ebay/

Very interesting variety here. For most of the states, I have a good idea as to why those artists seem to be so popular there. For some though, I'm very surprised. Fairey was searched most in Rhode Island? Not sure why that might be...

Super interesting how regional these results are. I'm surprised by that but I guess I shouldnt be. Why was MS, AK, and OK left out?

Tyler Stout took Texas which is not surprising. I am surprised that he only took Texas though.

Shepard's Buddy Cianci/Andre the Giant has a Posse billboard in Providence RI back in the early 90's was pretty awesome.

Thomas Kinkade takes the south. I hated those prints when I was a kid. My grand mother had them all over her house. I remember wanting to play a puzzle and she showed me to a closet full of Kinkade jigsaw puzzles. :hanging:
