Asleep




Illustration Friday: Asleep. Hmmm. Not sure what I think about this one. Dithered lots. But it's one of my favourite themes - what really goes on in some children's heads. I say 'some' because of course they are not all the same. I only know certain ones in my vicinity, and what they think and obsess about is not flowers and fluffy bunnies. A lot of their gory obsessions come out in nightmares about giant robots, vampires, killer dogs and evil witches. I also remember my own childhood and getting in big trouble for doing unsavoury drawings of axe murderers and naked people. Not only did I draw them but I convinced my cousin to help me, in a kind of naughty drawing production line. Then we went around the neighbourhood and put them in people's letterboxes. Not that I would ever tell L that, of course...
