Lost & Found: Dreaded Detroit artist with bright green “Eat More Kale” shirt

Taurus BurnsDetroit artist Taurus Burns, known for his intimate cityscape paintings, went missing early Sunday morning.

So naturally, his wife,┬áBethany Young Burns, listed a description of her husband on Facebook: Thin, medium dreads, light-skinned African American, 38 years old. And he happened to be wearing a bright green shirt that read, “Eat More Kale,” in bright pink letters.

The attire, which also included white sneakers, jeans and a Detroit Parade Company jacket, was eclectic enough to gain the attention of others on social media sites.

When Taurus showed up safely Monday, many expressed relief. And they also wanted to see this shirt he was wearing.

“Hey guys,” one poster said on Facebook, “this is going to sound silly, but there’s been a request for you guys to take a picture of Taurus in that shirt, now that he’s been found, because the general consensus of the folks on imgur is that that would be a bitchin shirt.”

It’s unclear what happened to Taurus. Neither he nor his wife updated followers on what happened.
