I Dream Of The Underworld In Paint

Oy, I've been drawing all week but don't have access to a scanner right now, so here's a text only post.

So I had this dream a few days ago after drinking a lot of alcohol where I was wandering through a skyscraper in New York that was supposed to have a passageway into the Underworld in an abandoned apartment. The weird thing is I found the entrance through a broken wall behind which I could see the gateway into the Underworld but it was a giant painting. There were vivid blues coloring a circular rock tunnel entrance and inside a deep brilliant red colored Cerberus posed menacingly at the center. I usually forget my dreams when I wake up so it's interesting to still have this image in my head. I'm going to have to paint it sometime and see if I can't actually use it as a gateway!

You dreamt you were on the set of Ghostbusters 2 in 1987!!

Ha, yeah! Now if only I'd convinced the GHostbusters to put that slime on something cool like mummified dead things in a museum and not the fucking statue of liberty!

Is it sort of an accepted deal that your dreams are more intense after drinking, cause that seems to be the case with me.
Though the craziest drug-induced dreaming wasn't so romantic; I was trying to quit smoking and was using nicotine patches. I left them on all night for three nights and had the most bizarre, vivid dreams I've ever had. Totally lucid, but completely out of my hands.
I read the insert in the box after those 3 days; Do not wear overnight.
My brother used them too, but he got his through a doctor who told him not to wear it at night cause you'll have too-intense dreams, and maybe "night terrors".

I think the best dreams come from Hallucinageons. I was sleeping off some mushrooms, alcohol, and other things awhile back and the dream worlds were so vivid they were almost real. I remember being an insect crawling up a giant staircase inside some vast labyrinthine temple, crawling alongside dozens of other insect like creatures towards some bizarre statue. It was so real that it almost felt strange to be human again when I woke up.

We must try to create a twin set of paintings/portals through will we able to exchange drugs & drinks.

And some comics too.

Paleo said...

Yeah! FUCK THE INTERNET!!

i want to communicate and exchange contraband round the world through Painting/Portals!

Awesome idea, only things will probably go terribly wrong like out of one of those old Outer Limits or Twilight Zone episodes. At some point something inside the limbo world between the portals will get a whiff of the junk we're tossing back and forth through painting portals and start stealing it while it passes between space and time, exchanging our good fucking drugs and drink for otherworldly liquids and things that will fuck us up beyond repair. We'll start growing into some weird ass Naked Lunch creatures and eventually have to stay inside the portal passages because all the humans will be trying to kill us for being such insane looking beasts! It's worth a try though!

Pfft... and what's the difference beetween that and one of my regular drinking sprees?
