When roaming the aisle through antique stores or clicking through pages on eBay, the strange and unusual always make you pause for a moment to contemplate how this item came into being. In Peanuts collecting, the oddity would be the Black Velvet picture. Unlicensed and many made for tourists in Mexico, the Black Velvet artists were prolific back in the day. Their favorite Peanuts character is, of course, Snoopy. Between bull fighting, getting tipsy and riding motorcycles, the Black Velvet Snoopy’s strange pursuits are captured in bright, glowing paint. Over the past few months, I’ve gathered photos of the cast-off kitsch into the Peanuts Black Velvet Gallery.
