We just read the sad news of wrestling super star, Roddy Piper’s death at age 61. As kids We were huge fans of the WWF, and especially Hot Rod Roddy Piper. Below I’ve posted a couple of Piper’s Pit clips from Youtube, along with his iconic fight scene from 1988’s They Live. Piper is one of the few wrestlers we had a chance to meet a various cons in the past, and it was always an honor to shake his hand. We’ll miss his antics and good cheer very much.
Here at Atomic Moo we feel that it takes a truly special sort of creative to appreciate the splendid beauty of black velvet paintings, but what if a person were to take that lost art and mix it with 1980’s style Wrestlemania? Well, then that’s just were genius is born. Check out the very cool art of Velvet Geek, where you can find more than just old WWF references. Artist Bruce White has done some stunning paintings that cover the entire geek universe. Check out some of his images below, but be sure to visit the link above to scope out more of his black velvet goodness!
