This is my entry for the Wacom Dreams contest.
To me, dreams are what keep us alive. I believe that one who has no dream is like a dead person. Dreams are there to keep everyone of us going, to help us go through hard times. Life is not always beautiful, but we must see what is beautiful in it and cherish it, and we must always believe in something; having goals and hopes is what makes us stronger and better, otherwise, we're running in circles or having our head buried in the sand.
So this my idea of what dreams are, and this is what I wanted to represent -more of a general definition- instead of illustrating my own personnal dreams.
This is a self-portrait. To the left, the caterpillars are the dreams breeding in our mind. They are building their silk tent in the midst of dead leaves and branches, hoping to become of course pretty butterflies. To the right, the butterfly is one of those dreams that came into being.
Pretty simple, really.
