The Nibblefest Art Contest (NFAC) is a monthly themed art contest run on eBay. It begins on the 20th of each month and ends on the 27th. Every month there is a theme: May is "Jungle Life." Artists can submit any kind of work, but they must follow posting guidelines, and every bid must begin at 99 cents. The person with the most bids at the end wins (a little trophy or something). Search eBay after the 20th for NFAC--you will see some wonderful stuff. it's a great chance to acquire original art at next to nothing proces.
Fat Kid was an old pompous hairless rat we used to have. He once had an encounter (mercifully brief) with a pair of bullying nekkid boys named The Crays. This event took on a life of its own, and Lord Phat Kidd was born.
This was an entry in the Nibblefest Art Contest for the theme of "Nude." I was inspired by my friend from Jamaica and her stories. Our pink lovlies have their Red Stripe, but do they have enough sun block!
Okay, it's not strictly rat art but Matt did get some rats into the art. We both love the old Creepy and eerie black & white horror comics and have done a few ourselves in that style. This was actually published in a small independent comic book some years ago.
I create ACEOs for fun and maybe a tiny profit. ACEO is the name of a group on eBay and it means: Art Cards, Editions and Originals. Art Cards are a standard size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches, like an average deck of cards. They fit in a standard trading card sleeve, or can be matted and framed. They are an affordable way to own original art and get a feel for an artists work up close. Search ACEO on eBay to see more Art Cards from talented artists.
