Cool people

A couple weeks after our new baby was born, we got this gift in the mail:
It was a framed original from Bobby Chiu, along with a note congratulating us and explaining the creature (elephant mice are born the size of walnuts but grow to 3 times the size of African elephants, in case you didn't know)  We've gotten many gifts for our kids' births over the years, but I have to say this is the coolest one so far.
Also, occasionally I get requests from people who want to create models from my paintings.  They usually turn out pretty good, but I think this is the best one so far.  Nice job by Porter Vinson.  I'm including my piece below the model for comparison:

    CONGRATULATIONS for your new born!
    So, so cute! :D That would make for a great present indeed.
    And as usual, lovely picture. I've always loved your art style, I hope to be able to colour the way you do one day. ^^
    The model is splendid.

  3. Congrats on your new born! :) Exciting news indeed! Hooray for Porter as well :)! Saw him working on it while at Ringling, it kept getting better and better! Nice to see how it turned out!

  4. Congratulations on the baby. Like Gabby, Porter was also my classmate. He did an excellent job--great to see that you think so as well!

  5. Awful nice to be chummy with the artsy set, huh? None of my artsy friends are on the send-an-original-happy-birthday level, sadly. But I've still got one or two original things that are treasured gifts. Nice. So nice. My M. used to model like this. Now he just writes software for other people's models.

  6. Fantastic stuff! Congrats on the baby c:
