Wish me luck! I just entered the Rat Fink Madness Art Contest over at Gnarly Magazine. Only 64 artists will be chosen from the entries they receive for the actual contest but all entries (including mine) are being posted on their site to help promote the artists who enter.
This piece in particular is very special to me. I drew it in 2014 for my Dad’s 60th Birthday. My Dad has always been inspired and a fan of Big Daddy Roth’s work and as you all know my Dad has always been my biggest artistic inspiration.
While at their site looking at the amazing entries, follow their social accounts and subscribe to their magazine. These guys are always doing rad stuff to help promote artists. And well I think that is pretty gnarly!
Stay Spooky & Different!
Ok… super excited about this post. I just gave my Dad a portrait I did for him of Big Daddy Roth holding Rat Fink for his 60th birthday. Since it was a milestone birthday I wanted to give him something special. I know that my Dad has always admired the works of Big Daddy Roth and it has been an inspiration to him in his own artwork.
Seeing my Dad has always inspired my art and has taught me so much, I came up with the idea of drawing this for him. I also just love the Fink philosophy of “Fink Differently” and wanted to add that in. As you all know I am definitely “different” not only in my art but my entire life style ha ha.
Here is the finished piece…
and of course some great shots my husband took of us tonight when we gave it to him at dinner..
