Someone Made an Incredible Painting of ‘Vodka Samm,’ It Just Sold on eBay for $295

by 4 years ago

Iowa artist Heidi Atkins McEchron crafted this painting, aptly titled, An Intelligent Young Woman With a Bright Future, so one very lucky Hawkeye's fan could own the memorial forever. She sold it on eBay for more than double her asking price of $146.50. Her description, much like the painting itself, is beautiful.

This painting depicts my interpretation of the adorably wasted University of Iowa student who stumbled her way into the Internet’s heart after she reportedly tried to get onto the field at Kinnick Stadium before being stopped by police and arrested. According to her Twitter bragging (and ICPD report), her blood alcohol content was .341, which I believe is just above comatose and therefore a feat worth celebrating. A perfect example of fleeting Internet celebrity (or at least ignominy), “.341 Grrl” is truly an inspiration to all current and former students of the UI. Own a piece of history today!

Vodka, if you're out there, call us. Or email me directly at We'd love to talk about your adventures and also your thoughts on this acrylic paint-based, glitter glue-having masterpiece of your person.
