Scott Baio Gave Me Pinkeye

Friday, May 13th, 2011

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.

Swirly Man

This was a bit of an experiment to cover up more pages where the ink had bled through the paper in my pocket moleskine. The main colour was added by gluing in tissue paper. I then doodled all over it with black Muji brush pen, black Pilot G-Tec C4s, gold and silver fine Posca markers and Posca brush pens. I’m not convinced that I like the result but it was good to try something a bit weird.

Better Out Than In

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

I drew this a month or so ago when I was feeling very bad. Don’t worry though, as the title says, better out than in, the more of this down on paper the less left in my head :)

A friend of mine made a comment when she saw it that really tickled me. “Is that meant to be you Amy? Oh Dear!” She said “You could have drawn yourself with some better shoes though couldn’t you?!”

Another Dragon…

…Or part of one anyway.

I’ve been going back through my pocket Moleskine filling up some of the pages where my brush pens have bled through from the other side. This eye appeared from the back of a yellow and orange daisy.
