The work is a development form my previous first half of the project that looked into Rorschach inkblots, and how we can be subconsciously manipulated by images that we see, the unconscious, and dreams. This project looks more into the idea of dreams, and more specifically illustrating my dreams.

The final body of work illustrates a dream that I had which was inspired by the covid-19 pandemic. I have always had very bad dreams and the anxiety and uncertainty surrounding the virus and lockdown of society as we know it has only added to that. The dream was about a post-apocalyptic world where all of the animals had grown to the size of houses. I was the only human left in a world that had been destroyed by a virus that wiped out humanity. This project is an exploration of the subconscious mind through creating a visual fantasy and representation of dreams. The main idea is to look at my dreams and the circumstances in real life that might be affecting my dreams.
