hypnagogia but close enough. Failing to sketching it when it was fresh in my mind I've had to struggle with recapturing the spirit of the dream. The image is loosely based on Borges' "Library of Babel" and "Circular Ruins".
"Beneath the Feet"
The images are presented in semi-chronological order. Although they began in the order presented, there has been a lot of jumping back and forth from one to the other. Each is presented with a working title, or not. "Enchantment" was influenced by Salman Rushdie's The Enchantress of Florence. An interesting read when accompanied by Assassin's Creed 2. "Beneath..." was inspired by Rushdie's Ground Beneath Her Feet. In it paths diverge and appear to come back together as the reality shakes apart. The last piece is still in progress and based on Borges' short stories. Not sure which ones or where it's going.

This is a very rough sketch for a stone idea, I can't seem to resolve the bottom half though...
This is a prep sketch for a stone litho. It's going to be in color, I just haven't thought that far ahead...
This image was inspired by the novel Enchantress of Florence by Salman Rushdie. It is a combination of photocollage and digital drawing. I'm not to sure if I wan to keep that section at the lower right hand side.
