tiny tiger kitten up for adoption...free!

hi guys,

thank you for your kind words.

tiny tiger kitten 4

i want to really show my gratitude by giving away this little tube-socked guy to someone lucky! (it's acrylic on canvas, 4x4 inches & retails at $75.)

last week i WON marisa's giveaway and it made my day. truly. i never win! i mean i don't think i've ever really won anything. plus, her art radiates goodness and i would love to have it near & will soon!

so to pay it forward...

please leave a comment here with what names pops into your head for this little fella or lady. whatever comes to mind first. it doesn't have to be cool or clever, no pressure, i'm just curious & like names! then i'll have hugh randomly draw a name out of his hat. yay!

i hope you participate because this one needs a home! i'll announce the winner monday evening 7ish west coast time.

Giancarlo! Hi Mati.

Lisa PN said...

although the other names are all good guesses, his name is Frances. His mother wanted a girl so bad, but when it was a he, she debated whether or not they could call a boy Frances.
After much thought she decided that it was definitely a unisex name. Frances might say otherwise.

Frances likes bananas with peanut butter and gets emotional during the oscars. he doesn't like conflict much and his best friend is a bird boy named Georges.

First thing that came to my mind was "Max", but looking at the other comments, I like a lot of those better!
I know I've commented on your Flickr page before, but I just want to reiterate how inspired I am by your artwork. I really, really love it, and have said such on my blog recently!

celeste said...

(because i'd put this in our soon to be baby's room, and that's his nickname)

RFR and SRB said...

Wiley but I am not sure it is a boy...if not, Loretta

RFR and SRB said...

girl cats have mustaches, right?

Vashey Fam said...

He's definitely a "Tobias Trouble"

Vashey Fam said...

Doesn't he look like trouble? I mean, socks do make one more stealthy! By the way I found your art in Cloth Paper and Scissors and just had to see more!

nicole gliddon said...

the first name to come to mind? winnipeg. I'm not even certain that's a doable name, but I love it for him. take care, xx!

Jennifer said...

Since you said the first thing I will be honest and tell. The first name that popped into my head was Cheese. I am not sure why, but it may fit :)

Definitely Archibald.
No idea why!
Definitely note Baldy for short, tho!

I would've called him rudy (something about the socks) but reynaldo is equally great.
