Yes, Mr. Furie, I Stole Your Spirit Portal Painting, "Pierre" for My Book

That's Right, I Stole Greg Furie's "Pierre" Spirit Portal Painting for My Book

So what?  I pissed off this dude, Greg Furie.  What's he gonna do about it?  Nothing, that's what.

This guy is pissed off at the world because nobody believed in his spirit portal painting, "Pierre."  He did have the balls to ask $54 million for it.  Here's the press release from 2015.

I turned "Pierre" into a character in my book, Wee Wee's World.  It was too good an idea to pass up.  

In the book, Leonard paints the painting, "Pierre," and Wee Wee conjures the spirit out of it.  

Pierre does a mean moon walk and loves to kill.  I liken him to a sci-fi Iceman, Richard Kuklinski. Who is Richard Kuklinski?  The Iceman, baby.

Hey, I did Furie a favor.  He wanted $54 million for "Pierre."  In Wee Wee' World, it sold for $1 billion at Sotheby's.

There's your 15 minutes of fame, Mr. Furie.

- Greg Groovie, Author of Wee Wee's World
