Holly dancing for Marshmallow by imaginism Holly dancing for Marshmallow by imaginism
Here's one of a series of illustrations we did for Borders book stores for their winter campaign in 2007-2008

It's about a fairy named "Holly" and a polar bear cub named "Marshmallow". They made a stuff toy too that was very cute.

It was drawn and art directed by Kei and painted by Bobby

When Borders gave me the bookmark with Holly and Marshmallow on it, I couldn't stop beaming at it! I can't believe YOU are the amazing artist who illustrated these characters! They are so cute!:aww: Brilliant job, and it's an honor to see your work on deviantart too!:clap:

After the christmas season was over, I asked if I could keep a bunch of the cardboard displays of Marshmallow and Holly (as I am employed by aforementioned bookstore, haha) and no one minded, so I have a whole stack of cardboard Marshmallows that I'm still trying to decide what to do with ^^;

Anyhoo, suffice it to say, I LOVED this series!! ^___^ :love: Awesome work!! :clap:

I worked at a busy Borders store during that Holiday season and that illustration was everywhere! I have to say, Marshmallow got me through work sometimes. I even did a version of him on the cafe chalkboard! Sadly, no photo as it was against store policy. <3 you guys
