This is a portrait of Ed “Big Daddy” Roth. His artwork was very influential when I was growing up in the 60’s and 70’s. I loved the crazy caricatures and the movement and over the top energy of Roth’s drawings. It was one of the first pieces I did for the Artist Hero series I did, honoring the artists that inspired me when I was young.
