Bad Art Under the Gavel

Last week, comedian Judah Friedlander, the dude who wears a trucker hat on 30 Rock, parted with a bunch of terrible art—though he prefers to call it “amazing art”—for the sake of charity. At New York’s second annual Bad Art Auction, Friedlander and his interesting collection brought in an impressive $4,254, which will go to New York Cares.

Clockwise from top left:
(1) Horses and bathing kids sold for $100.
(2) A forest made from yarn (which you can comb) got the winning bid at $200.
(3) Bigfoot on the beach went for $70.
(4) Guy with open shirt had the crowd going wild and sold for $60.
