(Newser) – George Zimmerman is apparently no longer just an "artist"—he's an artist who has reportedly profited from his craft. The Los Angeles Times reports that the eBay auction for Zimmerman's signed 18-inch-by-24-inch oil painting of a blue American flag has closed as of Saturday morning, with the winning bid clocking in at $100,099.99—a sizable leap from the $0.99 bidding started at. The buyer's identity has not been disclosed, but the Times points out he or she will get more than the art. Per the listing, "Whoever wins within the Continental United States, will receive this painting delivered by me personally," Zimmerman wrote.
