Noah's daughter had a birthday recently. I was trying to think of a present to make or buy her. While flipping through my sketchbook one day, I came across the Skeleton Family Portrait I'd done for my own family. It dawned on me that this concept would be perfect for the little Scalin family. I included their three cats, since pets are furry family members. I drew this with pencil, inked it, and painted it with watercolors.
