At the end of the project though, I can say that I am proud of my submission. Putting it in the envelope to send to Brooklyn, NY knowing full well that the little monster won't be coming home ever again was the most challenging part of the project for me. But, I did it.
Here is a sampling of pages from my book, which follows the progression of nightmares as your periods of dreaming begin vague and short and grow longer and more vivid as morning draws near.
- A frightening of Distressing Dream.
There are 43 pages that span the course of 4 periods of dreaming. To see all of them check out the set on Flickr.
P.S. I feel the need to point out that most of the fears highlighted in this book are not ones that I actually have. I rather like birds, the ocean, Baba Yaga, forests and squids. However, clowns give me the serious heebie-jeebies and I am afraid of heights and falling. That last sequence creeped me out a bit as I drew it. Ick.
