Art Journal Page: Dream + Time Lapse Video


For the latest Journal52 prompt, Dream, the first thought that hit me was the Edgar Allen Poe quote "Is all that we see or seem but a dream within a dream". And I'd be lying if I didn't also know this line from the 80's German pop band Propaganda with their dynamic single Dr Mabuse.

I wanted to go with a darker theme to dreams, bordering on nightmare haha. So I went with a darker background colour. As you will see in the video, I began by drawing a whole heap of circular doodles which I found on Pinterest.

I printed out Hal Razer, a digital stamp on my new Etsy shop, coloured him in and added him to my page along with the doodles for a hallucinatory image.

The dream word saw me grab my beloved Posca pens. 

And if you want to see how it was all pieced together, click on the below video...


I hope you enjoy. And if there's anything you want me to show in another video or comments on how to improve them, please feel free to leave a comment.

Until next time

Love & Hugs
