I'm not sure if this was a dream or a nightmare. The situation and everything was scary: Here's this girl from a ball or prom or gala, and she's dead, and she's got a giant hole in her head, and she's sitting on this dock in the dark and the cold waiting for something.... but I love her. Having this dream I felt love and peace and softness and tender sadness, so it's a bit of both. This girl suffered something tragic, but here she is in peace, just waiting by the dark water.
This drawing was inspired by one of my favorite animated shorts, Feed the Kitty, directed by Chuck Jones. I love the relationship between the 2 main characters and wondered how it would be when Pussyfoot (the kitty) was all grown up.
