I've kept a written dream diary for almost twelve years now, but since my dreams tend to be very vivid with imagery, I decided to do a visual journal. This sketch is from my dream on the night of Friday 17th August 2012. It's actually a WIP; the compass tattoo is going to be much more detailed.I rarely draw men, so this was a bit of a journey outside my comfort zone - a feel a lot more safe and practised with the female form. I'm not sure this conveys everything I wanted it to... the man in my dream had super intense eyes, but every time I tried to draw them I couldn't recreate what I remembered, so I settled for having him look down and away. I guess that's fitting too, because in the dream I was some kind of ghost; I couldn't touch him and I'm not sure he could see me.
