These two completely different warped views have an even more otherworldly story. They came from a very deep part of my mind, a terrifying place where this nightmare once lived. It was one of those hellish nightmares where the place you are trapped in seems endless and things repeat themselves infinitely. You fear never awakening. I’m grateful I no longer have this recurring nightmare. Though I’m also filled with gratitude for the countless art it has brought about.
Horror art has a way of creeping into my designs as early as September. I usually do this in preparation for any custom greeting cards I’d like to send out. (Usually if I decide to make them printable.) This is one of those that was inspired by a series of nightmares I had one night after watching a Twilight Zone marathon, and lack of sleep.
The light in the dream had a strong magnetic effect and seemed to pull you (willingly or unwillingly) toward it. It was a cold, damp, large area of nothingness and terror. This is not a place I wish to return to.
The place pictured above is from an interesting nightmare once had during a snowstorm/power outage. I was about eleven years old the first time this setting entered my dreams. It’s been used in a few stories of mine and more than one painting or digital piece. I’m adding it to my artist collection over at the gallery.
This has been Day 30
*Join me tomorrow for a special outro during our final nightmare, Day 31, Halloween.
