This is an actual commissioned piece for a banker friend. He furnished the general concept, the quote selection and the players; I fleshed it out. It's approximately 9"x9", watercolor on illustration board.

Do you have any pet interests that would make a good Quiptoon you'd like to own? Commissioned pieces are more than welcome. Please contact me through my e-mail address in the ABOUT BOX , above right.
