    Childhood dream

    When I was a child I kept having a dream about having an itchy head and then when I scratched it open three spiders crawled out.
    All in pencil
    Hope you like it

    The drawing is really stunning (and very resembling I'd say from Your pictures).
    The dream is so weird it would deserve to be completed into some sort of fantastic story (maybe an illustrated one) ... and also some sort of psychological research ... I'm kidding.
    As a child fantasy is particularly fertile. Apart from flying etc., I seldom had some dreadful nightmares where I had to face fearful struggles against some deceiving devil hidden in persons I knew ...

    A rare conjecture of dreams and on spiders...........You've beautifully brought out the expression so nicely!

    I wonder if you heard someone say that the brain was a "web" of neurons when you were little? Very good drawing! Al

    Thank you dear Katie. no it didn't disturb my sleep

    Very possible AL.Thank you

    Thank you very much Wenkat

    Thank you very much Cesare. I have some pretty strange ideas in my head it's just a case of getting them out and on to a blank canvas.
    I suffered many nightmares as a child but they also helped to inspire me when I was still learning to draw.

    Nice sketch.

    My childhood dreams often allowed me to fly at will.
    I think all that thin air is starting to effect me.

    Thank you for the lovely comment. Yes I am not particularly fond of spiders myself. "PS/ your dream is an urban myth downunder"I never knew that
