The Shape in my Dream

The Shape in my Dream

It all started with a dream...

In October 2021 I had a dream and in that dream a shape appeared. The next day I drew that shape and for the next 12 months continued to work on drawing until it was finished in October 2022.

Made with stencils and gel pens this artwork signifies the re-awakening of something once dormant. This can be a from a past hobby, relationships with friends and family and also a reawakening of the the inner self. This artwork was the seed to reawakening my inner creativity and I hope it sparks a seed within you.

Zoom into the artwork to see all the intricate detail and the image gallery for some of the audio books that helped inspire this artwork.


“It is said that soon after his enlightenment, the Buddha passed a man on the road who was struck by the extraordinary radiance and peacefulness of his presence. The man stopped and asked, “My friend, what are you? Are you a celestial being or a God?”

“No,” said the Buddha.

“Well, then, are you some sort of magician or wizard?”

Again the Buddha answered, “No.”

“Are you a man?”


“Well my friend, what are you then?”

“I am awake.”
