I'd like to thank Crayola
I really should have kept my early pre-school drawings...
Edvard Munch's 1895 crayon drawing "The Scream" sold for $119.9 million Wednesday night, making it the most expensive artwork ever sold at auction. The auction, conducted by Sotheby's New York, lasted twelve minutes.
The previous record-holding work was a 1932 Pablo Picasso painting called "Nude, Green, Leaves, and Bust," which sold in 2010 for $106.5 million.
That is usually the face I make when I look at my bank account balance.
