Making it look effortless.


Finally get a bit of space to draw up the second page of a three page dream. I am trying to make the drawing look effortless and today that is taking a lot of effort.

Not sure what the dream means but then do they ever mean anything in the waking world? Saying that, my friend Justin went walking to a town in Spain called Santiago recently, I looked it up on the web and it looks exactly like the town in my dream. I have never been there, but now it is imbued with a magical property that one day I might go there and fulfil my destiny.

What the dream meant to me at the time and what it will mean in comic strip form are two separate things.

Bird Nest Dream

Birds Nest Page 1

This is based on a dream from last week. I’ve changed the characters and settings to protect those from my past and to make it more interesting to draw. Did she leave amicably, was she murdered? Like most dreams it’s pretty boring but the feeling of melancholy pervades everything in this world.
