Dreamer / 40 pages /
Crayon on paper
I dreamed of going back to my high school, there was no one there. A friend of mine was following me, and I showed her around aimlessly……These are the fragments of my dreams, also the beginning of this story. I search my mind for any hints of dreams; trying to put the images together of those dreams and make them a story.
This is my process of self-exploration and a journey of the creative process. Whenever I’m facing an empty canvas, my mind starts to wander, looking for hints and directions, like looking for an exit in the darkness.
