Jeanine Henderson—Recurring Nightmare

I dream vividly, and often—and usually remember my dreams at least partially. For awhile in college I was fascinated by dreams, so kept a "dream journal". I took a look through it tonight and realized I often dreamed (and still do!) of water and strange fish, sharks and creatures—half human, spotted, scaly—all kinds of strange beasts! And always that I'm fearful and trying to escape them. I have no idea what that means, because I love fish, seafood, swimming, the ocean, and any kind of water play in general. So who knows!? But I chose to play off that recurring "nightmare". My time was a bit limited this week, so I kept this a simple and fun ink & gouache drawing.

  1. I love this creepy fish Jeanine! Knowing your affinity for the Mermaid parade- this is especially interesting. Talk about facing your fears huh? :)
