Scott Baio Gave Me Pinkeye
As long as I remember I have always been lucky or unlucky enough to have very vivid dreams (lucky or unlucky depending on the dream). However, recently I have been sleeping a lot more lightly, waking several times through the night and remembering more of my dreams.
I am usually aware to some degree that I am dreaming and can therefore sometimes steer the course of my dreams which can be quite fun, like watching a film where you can control the plot.
One of the coolest dreams I ever had has really stuck with me. I have a feeling that I have embelished my memory of the dream somewhat, as my memory of this dream is a lot more polished and makes more sense than my dreams usually do. In this dream I was on the run from some bad guys who were after me because I had super powers and they wanted to find out how they worked. they caught up with me but I could control energy levels and locations of materials at atomic and molecular level. This meant that I could fly, I could create walls of ice from the air, I could boil the ice at will and I could control the weather. In my dream I used all of these powers to fight the bad guys and I won! I could also change my clothing and appearance including my hair colour etc at will. The only thing that I could not change was the striking unatural violet colour of my eyes.
I woke up feeling like I had been inside a very exciting film in full glorious technicolour and that I was the star.
These came out a bit more pink than I had planned, although the scan seems to be closer to the colour I intended, but you get the idea.
Over the last day or two I have added a few links to the sidebar of this site, these are mainly to the blogs of other artists and illustrators who I follow and find very inspiring. Do check them out, there is some beautiful work out there. I will try to keep these up to date but please let me know if you find any broken links.
