OWL PILLOW! Inspired by the Roderick on the Line episode in which John Roderick tells us about his pillows turning into owls. Bridget’s cross stitch (inspired by the same episode) caught my attention first, so she’s the bigger inspiration to me.
Bonus: Owl Pillows was created the day before I finished embroidering my owl’s beak. PS: I apologize if it looks like Totoro. The ears seem to have made it less owl-y, and the embroidered beak resembles a big nose.
In advance of same, here’s a quick trailer to help you prepare—both for the episode itself, and, more importantly, we want to help you begin to absorb John’s indispensable advice for (maybe, maybe) earning a seat on Super Train.
You just better hope to Christ you bring everything you’ll need.

In episode 26 of Roderick on the Line, John Roderick related a tale from the wee hours of a recent morning, wherein he awoke briefly to discover that the pillows on his bed had transformed, in situ, into owls. As he was asleep when this occurred, he had no idea of the transformation as it took place and therefore could not witness it.
My artistic rendering of the events directly preceding takes some liberties, primarily when it comes to the owl speaking (“Owls can’t talk, dummy.”). I also made this owl a brown one rather than the white owls related in the original story because I cannot draw owls and thought this would help identify what I was going for. (As if “OWL” over the image wasn’t enough to indicate.)
