Venice Lives In My Dreams
MARCH 14, 2007
This image came to me in a dream. Fortunately I remembered enough of it after I woke up to do a sketch; that doesn't always happen.
It is inspired by two of my favorite things about Venice, Italy: watching the silent progress of ocean liners at night passing through the Giudecca canal out to sea, and the feral cats that live all over the city.
What also excites me about this image is that it reminds me of some of my early Professor Nimbus silkscreen prints. I never expected that those prints would lead me down the path to making graphic novels. Maybe this image will lead me into some unexpected directions too? I hope so!
