I had a dream
In February 2010 I awoke and immediately began looking for my sketch book and a pencil. I drew the image I had seen in my dream, I made notes on the materials used and included every detail I had seen. I then proceeded to talk about it for days, weeks afterwards.
I sought out the materials needed. That beautiful origami paper received as part of a Christmas gift, an A3 piece of thick black card, a white chalk pencil, glue and other bits and bobs.
All these things I placed in a plastic bag, stored them in a dresser draw and promtly proceeded to procrastinate about getting around to actually creating the dream picture.
That is of course until today. Today I fished out the plastic bag and my sketches and did it. It's a strange image. It reminds me of slave ship pictures you see in history books and on documentaries except with a comic book/Japanese/zombie twist....if you know what I mean.
I forgot to take a photo of it prior to framing it so the image above is not that great - although you do get quite a good view of my self portrait reflected in the glass - I'll take a better picture soon and add it here another day, just for the record.
Well that's my news. Oh, except to say that I found an app that let's me blog and add images all from my eye-phone, how's that for sweet?
