Art Director Uses eBay to Find Work

An enterprising (or desperate) advertising art director has put himself up for bid on eBay. In his listing, "Alex the Art Director" says he "looks great in board meetings, concepts well with others and really knows how to take Direction."

The listing goes on to say, "This easy-going creative has excelled at such shops as Mad Dogs & Englishmen and Publicis & Hal Riney. Most recently he has freelanced at Plan B and DDB Chicago. Currently, Alex the Art Director has been working on his own freelance clients under the name uglytown and friends."

His starting bid is $2,000 per week which is steep (especially for those who would actually look on eBay for an art director) and as of today, has no bidders. Spoof? Real? We'll know soon enough.
