What do leopards, Jesus, Elvis, unicorns and really creepy clowns all have in common? They are all commonly portrayed in velvet paintings. Yes, velvet paintings.
I'm happy to say that I am now the proud receiver of one of these exquisite art pieces.
Bud, was gracious enough to bestow upon me one of his magnificent works, a black velvet "Evil Maria Robot" from Metropolis, for collecting some sticks for his frames. Had I known I was being paid in artwork, I would have looked harder for some better sticks! And the "Evil Maria Robot" is way cooler than any bull-fighting matador.
If you are interested in seeing more velvety artwork, I'd suggest visiting the Velveteria in Portland, Ore., but since they're closed, you'll just have to visit them online.
