The Tillemann-Dick family’s magnificent endeavors, traced in a July 10 Westword profile, have inspired one of its members, 14-year-old Gloriana Willow, to embark on artistic flights of fancy. "It is awfully hard to get all of the Tillemann-Dicks together at one time," she explains. "So, with the aid of Microsoft Paint and various children's procrastination from chores, the Tillemann-Dick's surrogate family portrait has come into being. One or two are being made each year, in different absurd but semi-realistic settings."
