The Velveteen Rabbit

This week's theme for Illustration Friday is "Worn."  The first image to pop into my head upon hearing this word was the velveteen rabbit, so I painted this image.

"Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby.  But these things don't matter at all because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."  ~ Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit  


  1. This is a sweet image and feeling. Lovely ink and watercolor, the quiet palette and reddish wall works well.
