2014 NHRA: Renowned Motorsports Artists To Add Color, Donate Talent To Help Friday's 9th Annual DSR Open House To Benefit Riley Kids

Local artist and illustrator Bruce Tatman has been part of every Open House and raised an estimated $5,000 to benefit Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health. Each year at the Open House Tatman works on an original painting that he donates to the live and Internet auction.
DSR has raised $240,000 for Riley.

Joining Tatman (shop.GearHeadIllustrations.com/Bruce-Tatm an_c63.htm) at the free car and bike show and autograph session with DSR drivers will be Kenny Youngblood, DSR fabricator Tom Patsis and Joshua Wells of Indianapolis.

Tatman's subject this year is the #RileyDreamRacer Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car that DSR's Tommy Johnson Jr. will drive in the NHRA U.S. Nationals that opens Friday evening and runs through Monday at Lucas Oil Raceway near Indianapolis.

The native of Dayton, Ohio, and graduate of the Central Academy of Commercial Art in Cincinnati has created collectible artwork for Becketts Publications, St. Louis Blues, Don Prudhomme/Snake Racing, John Force Racing and others.

Joining Tatman will be Kenny Youngblood (YoungBloodArt.com), who will personalize some of his noted cartoons for a donation to Riley. The 68-year-old Los Angeles native living in Las Vegas is known as drag racing's most prolific artist and will be at the Open House courtesy of Toyota.

Youngblood has built and driven a pair of "slingshot" Top Fuel Dragsters and worked on various race teams along with co-owning several types of race cars and currently publishes the website FuelCoupe.com.

His unique, lifelike airbrush artwork are signed "Blood Did It."

"The car culture has gone mainstream, it's a great time to be involved in hot rodding," said Youngblood, whose work has been featured on numerous TV shows, in publications and his artwork is the star attraction of the Hot Rod Grille in Las Vegas.

Returning to the art show for a third year is Patsis (ColdHartArt.com), a former DSR crew member and one of the top welders in the country. Patsis creates metallurgical automotive sculptures, many of which are made with used race car parts.

Another new artist at the Open House will be Joshua Wells of Wicked Kolor (WickedColor.com), whose airbrush art ranks among the best in the country. He started with a small auto collision repair center in Indianapolis in 2003 before shifting focus to airbrush art on a variety of platforms from motorcycles to street rods and various household items.

DSR's support for Riley, Indiana's only comprehensive hospital dedicated exclusively to the care of children, drew a crowd of about 4,000 last year.

Popular DSR Open House features returning will be:
* Indy Hi-Winders Car Show;
* DSR/Riley Silent Auction in which bidders can participate in person or via the Internet;
* DSR Driver Autograph Session;
* Giant Nitro Nostalgia Cacklefest when at least 10 classic dragsters and Funny Cars will fire their motors at the same time;
* Raminator Monster Truck;
* DSR CNC/Machine Shop tour;
* Food Truck Corral with Nacho Mama, Greiner's Subs, Gypsy Café, WyliePalooza and Der Pretzel Wagen;
* And more surprises!
