Froggie’s Mysterious Dream:
How I Found Myself In My Drawings
First came the drawings, over a period of many months. They emerged out of my subconscious, creating creatures I’ve never seen before. Then came the quest to discover how they were meant to connect with people out in the world, over another period of many months. Finally came the production of this book. It has been a two year odyssey of learning to do something I’ve never done before.
There are 12 chapters, each with it’s own pen & ink drawing. Each chapter has two parts: 1) “In My Dream” where I write as though the drawing is from a dream and I am recording it in my dream journal, 2) “In My Daylight” where I use my conscious thinking and my intuition as though I am journaling about what the dream means to me in my life.
I leave the drawings in the original black and white. Each person who has looked at them sees something different. Over time I have found that the drawings speak differently to different personalities. If I were to add color where I wanted to I’m afraid I would inadvertently guide people to see only what I see.
This book can be used as a guide to your own personal journey, as an inspiration to draw or journal, as a conversation piece between people who want to get to know each other better, or to inspire your own mysterious dreams.
If you find other ways to use this book I would love to hear from you. This will be a help to me as I endeavor to create a helpful workbook to go with it.
