George Zimmerman Lawyer

I Hope His Paintings Make MILLION$

George Zimmerman could have a gold mine on his hands -- selling artwork to climb out of massive debt -- and no one's happier than the lawyer who defended him at his murder trial -- who's still waiting to be paid ... TMZ has learned.

Zimmerman is on the hook to attorney Mark O'Mara for a reported $1 million.  Zimmerman could make a serious dent in that debt if he sells his first original painting on eBay ...  because the highest bid is now well over $100K.

O'Mara wouldn't comment on Zimmerman's finances.  But he did tell us, "If selling paintings helps him rebuild his life, I'm not going to stand in the way of that."

But we're guessing if there's a big fat check in O'Mara's mailbox ... he'll gladly cash it.

It is stolen from a copywriter photo & manipulated, You know, that time he killed an unarmed black teenager and got off claiming self-defense. Oh, God, and now someone out there is apparently willing to pay $100,00 for his new little hobby. If anything, this works strongest message, unintentional of course, is just how horrible this world is, Good Lord.And, if the buyer does not know about the plagiarism before the end of the auction, expect a law suit afterwards. So, he's a plagiarist, besides being a murderer

If you look close, there are no brush-strokes. You can have this done at Costco or walmart .that ASHOLE always get away. You'd be surprised some of the copyright suits that have been filed and won, on images that are much, much less alike than his. He is in violation of the copyright on this, no doubt about it Seeing as Shutterstock’s images are copyrighted and are not free to use, things could potentially become legally complicated if Zimmerman

Mark O'Mara won't be getting a penny from any sale. If you read the questions and answers at the bottom of the auction for the painting one person asked Zimmerman if he was going to use some of the money to pay his attorney and he said no.

Didn't they get donations for the cost of his trial, which should inclue his attorney's fees? Did they not get enough?
