I’ve been doing a lot of sketching lately – I have been getting inspiration to do a series based on narratives that spring from my dreams. For years now I’ve been having dreams of flying. Sometimes I’m in a flying contraption, sometimes I’m just floating above the street, sometimes I’m really high, sometimes I’m just above the treetops. What these dreams have in common is I’m always on my own and I’m always unseen by those below.
I’ve read a lot of interpretations of flying dreams but my favorite is that dreams of flying indicate reaching for higher goals. Nice.
My little sketchbook is full of quick sketches and notes of ideas for this series. I finally put one on paper, see below.
