Original Master of Puppets Artwork Up for Auction

As listed on Christie's website:

Original artwork for the cover of Metallica's 1986 album Master of Puppets, painted by artist Don Brautigam. Signed on the lower right of the painting DB. Framed 17x17in.
Two things:
  1. I wonder: in 1983, did Don Brautigam have any idea that his artwork would go for $20,000 to $30,000 25 years later? Don't artists usually have to wait until they're dead for that kind of success? Is Don Brautigam still alive?
  2. It's my goal to find the person who buys this piece and become their new best friend - at least until I can get a picture of myself next to the art on their wall.
