Literature
Across the Void of Sleep, Please Watch.
I don’t dream much anymore, which I’m honestly quite thankful for.
When I was little, I used to be able to sleep on my back, but there were stories of sleepwalking, night terrors, and things like me mistaking the closet for a bathroom. I’d bet there were a few nights where I screamed out or stood at the foot of my parents’ bed, just swaying back and forth, unnervingly quiet. Most people don’t remember their dreams. For a lot of us, it’s probably because they’re either inconsequential, nonsensical, or immemorable. For me, I’m positive it’s a defense mechanism. I can’t ever remember having a good dream and my nightmares get more… creative as I get older.
I’ve always believed that certain people have a skill or affinity for seeing through the veil that separates our choices and minds from other worlds with different decisions, physics, and metaphysics. I often wonder if certain artists and writers can actually peer to

I started drawing when I was 10, sitting in front of a TV copying Dragon Ball Z pictures. I occasionally managed to get some practice with other mediums in school, but have never had much formal training.

I lost most of my time and motivation during college and for a few years after, until discovering - you guessed it - MLP:FiM. The community was opening and welcoming and really helped with both some mental stuff and getting back into art. It's been a few years and I'm not terribly interested in Pony stuff anymore, but I did find an amazing artistic girl who's kept me on my toes ever since.

I don't often spend my free time legitimately trying to train myself, preferring to look for learning opportunities in each picture, but I'm hoping to get even more serious sometime soon.

Looking through my gallery, it might be easy to tell, but I'm inspired by the Impressionists (Monet and Van Gogh, in particular), Dali, strip cartoonists like Jim Davis, Bill Waterson, and Scott Adams, dark humor such as Night Vale, and a myraid of cartoons and animes I've watched.

Most of the weird stuff I draw was pulled out of an image in my head when I was half asleep and many were not drawn, well, sober. What I look for when I'm drawing is both an escape from common life and a way explain my core self to other people.

During my days, I'm usually working with databases, analyzing trends, optimizing stuff, and coming up with new reporting tools. At night, I dream of being a sea gypsy in the South Pacific or creating installations that force a perspective shift or starting a successful comic of my own.

Sure thing! I hope my realism gets to your level one of these days so I can bring my surreal visions to life, as well. :D
