The Sketchbook Project people
have run another free project
and I managed to get a place
(there were 1000 places available).
Showtime and the new original series,
We were invited to illustrate our nightmares
on the special Dreadful Project card sent to participants;
monsters, eerie scenes, our greatest fears
or sharing the darkness that is within us.
I have always suffered with night terrors,
and although they have lessened as I've got older,
when I'm stressed they can still emerge and they
are extremely frightening - for Grant and
the 'kids' as well as for me.
When the lights are out, innocuous objects can
take on a brooding and malignant guise,
and that is what I have
tried to portray in my card, where
the shadow of the fluff bunny
(we all have fluff bunnies, right?!)
in the bottom right hand corner becomes a
terrifying and dreadful giant spider
(I loathe spiders although I would never hurt them).
My card is now in the post
to Brooklyn, New York!
