Dreams are a powerful resource of inspiration and design for me. Many of my daily experiences culminate in this unconscious state. This place allows freedom of ideas without restriction. I will often wake up with a completed design and can see it perfectly as if it were already made. With paper and pencil close by, I am quick to record the design.
