John Kettman isn't a big football fan, but he was impressed when he saw Aaron Rodgers play against the Cowboys Sunday. 

After the Packers won to advance to the NFC Championship, the pop culture artist from LaSalle, Illinois wanted to use his painting skills to pay homage to the Green Bay quarterback. 

Kettman is known for his portraits of public figures on items like pumpkins and corn kernels, but for Rodgers he decided to play on the connection between the Packers and cheese.

So, Kettman painted a portrait of Rodgers on a Cheez-It.

Kettman told NBC26 it took about 8 hours and one try for him to complete his Cheez-It masterpiece. He would be willing to sell it to a Packers fan if they made an offer.

Kettman received recognition during the 2016 election for painting Donald Trump on a pumpkin. 

He said if the Packers make it to the Super Bowl, he might paint more Cheez-Its with other Packers players.
