Colorful purple, pink and yellow orange tapir and puffin on a pale green background, 8 x 10 art print.

Tuwawi* the puffin has been trying to instill in her friend Giuseppe, a tapir, the importance of being on time to all kinds of engagements. As a long-suffering bird whose husband is the unhurried, moseying type, she thought that starting the tapir young would be a good foundation. Just now they are (sort of) hurrying to an afternoon fruit feast at the home of Guk, a rhinocerus hornbill and great friend of Tuwawi and her husband.

This is an 8" x 10" print (reproduction) of my original drawing. This illustration was scanned at high resolution and the pale lime background was added digitally. This print is also available with a white background as shown in the 5th picture above. If you prefer the white background just add a note! The shop name does not appear on the print.

The reproduction is a lovely high quality Lustre Silver Halide Photographic Print. It has quarter inch borders all the way around. It will be carefully packaged in an acid free plastic sleeve and stiff flat mailer.

[*Tuwawi! means quick! in Inuit. She is from Alaska but unlike the rest of her extended family, neither she nor her husband could stand the cold. After a few months of searching for a suitable home, they ended up in tropical Malaysia of all places. They really liked the bountiful fruits, but it was Giuseppe the baby tapir who sealed the deal. Sometimes two creatures from different worlds just really hit it off. As for Tuwawi’s husband, he tends to socialize mainly with the hornbills (in part due to their naturally unhurried demeanor).]
