Alex Gardega, the artist whose nude Rachael Ray portrait is up for bid on eBay (currently going for $107.50), says he will put the money he gets from selling his art to good use.

"I am using the proceeds to save a chicken I adopted that was loose on the streets of NYC," he explains, pointing to a NY Post article that first exposed the rogue bird.

Gardega isn't done with foodie portraits, however. In fact, his next subject is sure to get the attention of epicureans everywhere:

"My next painting is the crucifixion of Mario Batali," he reveals. "I am not sure why I am on a food kick in my art, but I am just going with it."

What disturbing blasphemy.
