So, it’s Sunday morning and I am going to draw a napkin while still in my jammies. I choose this
quote because it is clever and insightful in a way I don’t usually see. I like the idea, though I don’t
want people to take it to mean they shouldn’t have dreams. Just that realism, REAL realism, isn’t
a bad thing.
I am thinking about sort of a sad woman, unadorned and real, not sure why. I know I want to
include a mirror since the mirror so often represents both illusion and reality in one. I am stuck when
it comes to what to put in the mirror, partly because I have made it so small I can’t draw another
version of the woman holding the mirror very well. Then blind cat walks in and wants to sit on my lap.
She becomes the reflection.
I think about the background and decide on a volcano because I have the room in the middle for it
and I like the idea of this explosive thing happening between the woman and the mirror that creates
a ‘cat’ illusion instead of a ‘her’ reality.
Not sure about the why of any of these decisions, but I thought it would be fun for you to hear how
random and odd my train of thought can be sometimes.
Oh, and I am going to put the name of the person who spoke the quote down here now,
instead of on the napkin. I want the napkin to be about the idea, not the person who
originally said it. I do want to give credit however, so here is where I will post the person’s name.
