Entering a Heavenly Dimension

I woke up last night at about 4:45 AM to the most beautifully, vivid dream.

The first thing I remember once conscious of this dream, was that I was standing in a crystal clear body of water. The water was light blue and I could see right through it, although I didn't see any fish or animals swimming in it. The water level came up to my shins, making it shallow enough that I was easily able to walk around in it. I felt weightless. The oasis stretched for as far as I could see in all directions.

I looked up into the sky and saw waterfalls, which were floating in mid-air.

The sky was completely blue and the sun was beaming down onto the water, which made everything look like it was glistening and sparkling. The colors were brilliant and saturated. My senses were so alert. I felt the sun and warm water on my skin and the sounds of the water trickling down from the waterfalls.

I felt such peace. So much magic.

The Consciousness Series

For over a year now, I've been working on a group of drawings called the Consciousness Series. The series consists of a dozen pieces and I'll be revealing the series in about two weeks!! I've clocked hundreds of hours on these drawings (not including the brainstorming, planning, doodling, photo shoots etc.. that take place before the drawing begins).

My best friend Michelle is my muse and the collaborative project has been such a learning experience for me. From the costume changes, to learning how to operate a camera, to photographing, figuring out proper lighting, angles, face expressions, composition...I've been able to let my creative juices run wild!

Once everything is done, I'll make prints, post them to the blog and sell them on my website! :)

I'm not releasing anymore information about the series until I reveal it at the end of the month. But you know I love you guys, so here's a few of the photos from our shoots:
