Every drug store in town offers to convert your favorite photos into sure-to-be-cherished throw rugs/blankets. All the ones on the wall look like shit, but it could be because they started with shitty photos of ugly kids. This is the first one
that came up on google.
Needlepoint could be cool, though.
Mostly unrelated, but a couple years ago in some stoopid artsy zine I read about some artist who painted gangsta rappers into baroque-style religious poses. The dude was especially obsessed with tupac. For some performance art shit, he got tupac's AK47 tattoo, and fakes of all pac's other tattoos. Then the black guy from mtv interviewed him (the artist) and really tore him a new one, telling the guy "I knew tupac and he would've hated what you're doing here" and shit like that.
Motto: do whatever you want, but don't expect validation from the black guy on mtv.
