Hot rod QSL

W7SAB cartoon QSL by N2ESTWhen John, W7SAB, told me he wanted a picture of his 1929 Nash hot rod on his QSL, I knew immediately how I would play it: His QSL would be an homage to Ed “Big Daddy” Roth, creator of Rat Fink and king of the hot-rod cartoonists.

Drawing this card presented three challenges: Getting John’s likeness right, getting John’s car right, and making it look as if Roth might have drawn it. I think I got close.

John’s reaction when he saw the finished product: “Awesome!!!” This one was a lot of fun to draw.
