Kojak by Shellie Lewis

Kojak by Shellie Lewis, acrylics and metallic acrylic on canvas, 24” x 36”

I have a small card from a game or board game for the Kojak television show that this painting is based on.  The back of the game card has a fragment of a photograph, the edges are shaped like a postage stamp, so the pieces can be put together like a puzzle.  When I was really little, the name Telly confused me because my name was Shellie.  Was it a variant or the male version or the same name?  Who was this Shelly Tavalas or Telly Savalas or whatever the strange name was?  I had seen the TV show.  Obviously, the man’s name was “Kojak”.
