Family Portrait

As many of you know, my wife Natalia has been away for six weeks in Nicaragua. To surprise her, I created and sent her this "family portrait" of her, me, and our life-sized stuffed tiger.

It was a big hit. And now that the secret has been delivered and Natalia is back (finally), I'm sharing the picture with all of you.


  1. So much warmth, Brian. I love it! Your wife has a great smile! I wish I had a life-sized tiger (I'm jealous).

  2. I am so glad Natalia is back! I hope the trip was a good experience.

    That is such a good cartoon tiger! The anatomy is spot on! I love his paws...

    I just have a cat sized tiger :)

  3. That's fun, nice piece...I can vouch for the self portrait aspect now that we've finally met :-)

  4. Thank you. I'm always a little bit shy about doing uncut cuteness.

  5. Either the tiger is tame or your both super heroes- thanks heavens it didn't turn into a Siegfried and Roy tragedy!

  6. I love this family portrait. There is warmth, love and fun - all most evident. I am not lucky enough to know either of you but your portait certainly makes me want to.
