Inspired by a strange waking vision of a fantastic dream I had. This piece is my best representation of what it was. I sketched it out immediately after I woke up and decided it would be my next project.
The man in the center is a dreamer in a dream. He is in an impossible battle trying to connect two realms (one water, one land) to close over the sun. Standing high above the earth he struggles to keep his stance on the parting clouds.
The sun between the two realms doubles as an eye, viewed from the inside-out. Light is pouring through the iris and into the dream. Thus waking the dream.
