Big Daddy Roth & Rat Fink

Art: Big Daddy Roth & Rat Fink by Artist Noelle Hunt
Ed "Big Daddy" Roth (March 4, 1932 April 4, 2001) was an artist and cartoonist who created the hot-rod icon Rat Fink and other extreme characters.

This months Nibblefest theme was Rodents, and I thought to my self
"Self, what are you going to do with that?!"
I'm not really a cute story book mouse type painter.Then I remembered one of my childhood heroes. "RAT FINK! and the man who created him.

SO, in tribute to Ed Roth, who gave me hours of pleasure not only as a child but also as an adult (I still have some Weirdos models in my basment waitting to be painted as we speak) , I give you the Big Daddy Roth & Rat Fink portrait.

This is an original oil painting , working from black and white and interpreting what colours should be there I hope I managed to get the feeling of those crazy hot-rod beatnik days!
Roth & Rat Fink have been painted on a wooden floor board pulled out of an over 100 year old factory which has been gessoed to protect the painting, I have left the side UNPAINTED .I wanted it to have that homemade feeling so typical of hot-rods of the day!

"This is my entry in the Nibblefest Art Contest, a themed art contest beginning on the 20th of each month. Please be sure to search for NFAC to see more great entries, each starting at just 99. Thanks!" please note due to the ebay strike we moved Nibblefest till the 27th to avoid any conflict with sellers who were participating in the strike.
