Pencil Vs Camera - 46



© Ben Heine || Facebook || Twitter ||

I want to dream! I made here a very simple sketch, a small
idea with a few lines and simple shapes. Everything is possible.

See the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

See THIS VIDEO showing 18 Pencil Vs Camera images in
progress (with a small animation and an original music).

I Want To Dream

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

I want to dream
Through day and night
Where the entire world seem
In the dreamy light
And stars go their way
In a dream come true
Where light is at play
Always to renew
I want to find my destiny
Be guided in its hope
Where all’s for you and me
By no means to elope
In every way possible
Where realty doesn’t count
Always to dreams accessible
Hard times shall surmount

I want to be a child
To find a wistful ray
Not be in times beguiled
Where dreams all go away
Where hope is impossible
To make active or try
Fantasies are accomplishable
Where make believe lie
I want to have a vision
In every colors too
With nothing of precision
In what to make and do
Just glide in my sleep
To find my own trance
When dream my eyes keep
In nocturnal instance

I want to dream
In flights of mind's eye
Rise thru the airstream
As distant as blue-sky
In every hope and call
Where no one has been
And rainbows are for all
In castle in the sky seen
I want to go and sing
That comes from my heart
And to the world bring
In every trust and part
All that is for a child
In innocence and clean
Ever so kind and mild
All early days have been


Draw me a Dream

A poem by Katie Gabrielle

Draw me a dream
Give me a pencil
Paint stars in the sky
Show me the way
And maybe I'll stay
Make the sky blue
Or maybe pink
Send some moonbeams
And a cool space ship
Add a few stars
Don't forget your telescope
For your trip
I want to dream!
Before I go
Across the desert
I shall wander
Just make sure
To wake me
Before I miss
My favorite dinner!
I want to dream
I want to fly
I want to see
What's out there
Beyond my pillowcase
Across the sky
And maybe the universe
But get me home
Before my teddy bear
starts to cry
It's fun to dream
And make believe
It's just a game
It's just a pencil
So you can play
If you believe
If you see the world
Just like a child.

(thanks Katie!)

After first seeing your art through a daily deviation, I've become a big fan of your artwork. Each one of these pieces where a piece of paper fills in the world only gets better each time. It recognizes the imagination that a complex artist can come up with. This piece in particular is rather impressive. I'm assuming that the real doorway is blocked up as well like the window. Seeing this piece makes me feel like that there is still an innocent child in me (or everyone for that matter) that still wants to escape to a better world. Maybe not a better world per say, but a world with vast imagination and adventure waiting to be explored. I'm also very impressed by how geometrically, the doodle is very precise, literally dead on to the reality surrounding it. Its surreal in its own way. Harmless, but still striking. I applaud you and this piece and hope there are more to come. <img src="…" width="20" height="20" alt=":clap:" title="Clap"/>
