Thinking of Otters

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

Maybe it’s because I finally got around to seeing Emmet Otter’s Jug Band Christmas (Thanks, Trevor), but I’ve had otters on my mind lately.   Silly otters.

Unable to pry them loose, I ended up painting my brother and his girlfriend otters for hanukah.  Here they are:

The Noble Puifin

I painted my brother a housewarming present.  He went through a puffin phase as a kid, which was rekindled in Ireland when we learned that puffin is spelled puifin in Irish.  He also went through a Notre Dame phase, but I don’t think I could paint Touchdown Jesus.
