Gift Guide: 'Alien' Queen on Black Velvet Painting


Paintings on black velvet have become synonymous with kitsch. Why settle for a "traditional" "Velvet Elvis," or "Dogs Playing Poker" when you could get the Queen from Alien? Created by tattooist and artist Bruce White, who decided that "Elvis and Jesus are not the only icons of the world worthy of being immortalized on a velvety canvas." In addition to the Alien Queen, some of Bruce's geeky velvet portraits have included Hellboy, Pee Wee Herman, Morticia Addams, the Ghostbusters, Nosferatu, and the Terminator.
