Waking Life by behindinfinity Waking Life by behindinfinity
"They say that dreams are only real as long as they last.
Couldn’t you say the same thing about life?"
Waking Life

:snowflake: More about this piece and its progress on my art blog post :pointr: jinjoson.com/waking-life


I share a lot of fan work, but I'd also like to share more of my original artwork with you guys.

This was my contribution to the Graphika Manila 2012 Book.

In preparation for a series of paintings I’ll be doing, I wanted to work on something that explores the concept of dreams.
