This is for  tonight Nibblefest starting at 7pm EST on Ebay!

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 basement waiting 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!
