~two pillows~

i am super excited to be working on my first "published" piece (so-to-speak). it is for an on-line children's magazine:) i am now on their illustrators call list and they emailed me looking for one illustration for a sweet story entitled "two pillows". it is about two pillows (obviously)-one being the bright new velvety pillow and the other being the older. more worn pillow. to sum it up, there is a bit of bullying by the new pillow and that in turn leaves the older one sad and feeling very lost and lonely. well, one night as the little boy gets ready for bed, his mom places the new pillow at the top of the bed and the other pillow on the side (a much less "respected" place). the little boy crawls into bed, places his head on the new pillow and somewhere in his slumber, finds himself embracing his older, much more worn and LOVED pillow:)
gosh, i hope explained that right;) so here is my one illustration for the story. it was approved by the lovely art director and i am painting it as we speak. deadline is monday the 28th, but i'm shooting for this friday!:)
