Two art directors wanted to work together and make a little extra money. If they wanted to make enough to buy a plate of buffalo wings at Le Figaro Cafe (now defunct) on Bleecker Street, they would render a plate a buffalo wings and charge $12.70. If they wanted a Wii, they would paint one and charge $270.92.
They made a first batch of 13 paintings about a year ago and built a Web site called wantsforsale.com.
