  1. “…enhanced by the artistic contributions of Shepard Fairey who spray-painted it, Andres Serrano, who Sharpie’d it, and Frank Stella who glanced at it.”

    Hah! I guess you don’t get much more minimalist than that. That’s very cool, that they’re going to tape the auction and show it on the Report eventually.

    I hope there’s a member of the Colbert Nation out there who has a bunch of extra cash burning a hole in his/her pocket. I’d love to see a lot of money raised for Donors Choose!

    Difference makers: Thumb up +7

  2. I love how he keeps finding ways to use his celebrity for a higher good. He has proven once again that he is not just another pretty intellectual-comic-genius.

    • Fully agreed :).

      Oh, times like this I wish I had a decent disposable income… Hope the portrait goes for a good chunk of change, so the charity gets some added help.
