The pillow I sleep with has been with me for some time now. It's heavy like the lead vest you wear when getting x-rayed at the dentist. It conforms to my head when I sleep. It also poses well when I want to draw a pillow. The idea of drawing pillows came to me years ago when I came across a series of pillow drawings by Albrecht Durer. Since we artists tend to draw the things that surround us I'm guessing that his was probably the one he slept with, too.
