With all that’s been going on lately, my dreams have been more vivid than ever. So I revoked the power of an old tradition between my grandfather & I & started noting a dream journal of sorts again. In a recent dream journey, a woman told me “Beyond the forest path, there lies another world.” So that was the inspiration behind this title & that is exactly the direction I followed.
Greetings, my darlings. It has certainly been a while. If you’ve been curious as to where your girl Daydreams has been, please check up on my latest Daydreams Diary or you could always follow on Twitter or Instagram (links in the sidebar) for more timely updates.
This design is my first attempt back into the world of concept art. Although I’ve only been away for about a month, you’d be surprised how rusty I’ve become. Despite all that, I’m going to be hitting the ground running this month due to a recent need to make my services available to a much wider audience of clients. You will likely be seeing an expansion of Snapping Turtle happening here at CardCastles and lots of promo material.
I’m not sure yet what this design is going to be used for and it will likely be very brushed up before it hits a client’s hands. Whatever the case, I was happy to create this little surrealistic landscape after being away from the art world for what felt like aeons.
Have you missed seeing these designs here? What have you been up to while I was away? Do tell. You know I love a good coffee chat.
I know it’s not over yet. In fact, with the new year rolling in, it’s only just beginning.
I’m aware all of this may sound oh-so-very cliché. I’m not blind to the notion that some people out there are sick to death of hearing me preach the power of positive thought. (Those people can stuff it, by the way.) In spite of all that, I want you to keep going with me, through whatever trials you may be facing as well. We can’t give up and we can’t give in. BELIEVE in yourself. It’s a point I have to make. It’s important.
We’re all just getting started. 😉
Have a beautiful Sunday, my loves.
& Have a very happy New Year!
Fun facts: This artwork was inspired by elements of science fiction and recent talks buzzing around about alien life. It’s been a little while since something in the “surreal” genre was posted here at CardCastles. This Sunday changes that.
