I painted these a few years ago. Neil had just won a Caldecott, so I made a tiny award for him as a prop. Shortly after I finished sculpting him, they announced they were dating and my email blew up with people that had seen the Neil Munny and wanted me to create an Amanda to go with.
I never felt quite right about selling them, so when I met a super fan of both Neil and Amanda at a Con I gave them to her as a gift. She was happy.
