Original Elvis-style jumpsuit fashion concept design, created and signed by Tony Alamo of Nashville. And Arkansas. And Saugus, where he purchased the old Wilson's Restaurant property in Sleepy Valley and used child (and other) slave labor to produce his gaudy, hand-made apparel items — which eventually landed him in prison for tax evasion.

The other things he did with his young disciples earned him another 175 years in prison, where he died in 2017.

Pen and ink, watercolor and silver metallic paint on board, 15x20 inches, undated.
