For example, the Binghamton girl Marla Omstead, who was promoted in the 2000s, ended up just drawing a baby whose childhood doodles were brought to the level of Kandinsky by her father, an amateur artist. The family made a lot of money until Marla tried to create online. It was then that it was discovered that the girl's work was nothing super-outstanding, and the shares of the Omsteds immediately fell in price.
