The Imagination of My Childhood

Me - Circa 1994

When I was a little girl I would get lost in all kinds of daydreams: I could be a dolphin, I could have a best friend who was so small she could fit in my hand, I could find that I belonged in the ocean as a mermaid. They were beautiful daydreams that I really believed could come true. It wasn't that I couldn't understand reality, I just believed that there was magic in the world.

Now my daydreams are much less imaginative. When did I lose that? I didn't need to. I have to sleep, get lost in dream worlds to see such beautiful things that used to occupy my waking mind.

I want that back. I want to dream about the impossible as if they could happen. I want to watch Doctor Who and believe there is a crazy man who stole a box and is traveling through all of time and space!


Current Projects

This year I've been trying to work on more projects, committing more time to creating. One is a year long endeavor: a photo a day of Soren. January 1 and 2 didn't go so well, we completely forgot, but since those days, I've remembered to take a picture of him. It seems like he's getting the hang of it, because he starts smiling when I put him on the rug by the window.

Then I've been working on this Doctor Who Illustration. I recently got into Doctor Who and loved it. I might be a little obsessed. I love Matt Smith as the Doctor. I know so many favor David Tennant, but Matt Smith is just so quirky and is right in line with my sense of humor.

Tangent. Tangent. My illustration is farther along from when this photo is taken, but I don't feel like it's complete.

I also am going to try to illustrate a scene from each of my crazy dreams. If you have known me for a long period of time, you may have heard one of my ridiculous dreams, and I just felt that I should have an illustrated record of them. I haven't gotten very far with those, so I don't have much to show, but I hope to be able to show them soon!
