About

Hi everyone and welcome to Lucid Dream Art on WordPress.

 

I am an artist who currently resides in the UK. My primary interests include art, cycling and dreaming. (Not always in that order!)

I don’t claim to be an expert in either of the above as I find everything is one big learning curve. Hopefully in my blog I can get across and share some of my ideas regarding art, drawing and dreaming, plus some of the common techniques used to attain the lucid dream state.

I first got interested in drawing as a young kid of about eight or nine years of age where I used to memorize cartoon characters and design posters in primary school for fireworks night. Even one of my teachers’ at the time said I would become an artist when I grew up.

However when I went to secondary school during my teenage years this all changed. I made the fatal mistake of not practicing my drawing as I thought it was one of those things that you either could or couldn’t do. So everybody overtook me and I lost interest, eventually leaving school with an average ‘joe soap’ qualification in art.

It wasn’t until my early twenties that I got interested in art again. I started from scratch by drawing caricatures and faces of people at work. I studied life drawing plus painting at a local college.

It was during my A-level that I got interested in the area of lucid dreaming after a college trip to London to visit The Tate and The National Gallery as part of our course. I remember buying a book on the subject.

What also got me hooked is at about this time, I had a highly vivid series of dreams in one night (not necessarily lucid) where I could remember every single scene and detail without having to write it down. I think at one stage I did become aware that I was dreaming.

Since then I have kept a sort of subdued interest in both these subjects. Hopefully, now I can combine both with a little sprinkle of tips with the aid of my blog entitled, “Lucid Dream Art.”

I do not intend my blog to be a complete ‘wiki’ full of tips and techniques regarding lucid dreaming, as there are a plethora of sites dedicated to this fascinating subject on the internet in differing degrees already.

Hopefully I can share some tips that help me and you, plus some dream inspired art along the way.

Transcribing dreams out of my head onto paper will be a bit of a challenge, but quite fun! After all – a picture tells a thousand words.

 

Thanks for visiting. See you again!

Hi-

Because you’re interested in Lucid Dreams and covered the Shadow app Kickstarter, I think you might be interested in this cutting-edge ebook app designed to help tween and teen readers go deeper into their dreams:

Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2145783133/raising-sleeping-stones-make-time-for-dreaming.

We’re in the final 3 days of our campaign and are only $1,200 from our goal, so you could help increase awareness of LD techniques in the book through your network. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Rob-
Thanks again for your support. The Kickstarter funded, the first half of the book is fully functional and on the App store, and the remaining half should be within 2-3 weeks. If you send your email address to me., I’d like to send you a free copy of the app as a gesture of my appreciation. I also think you’ll enjoy the story šŸ˜‰
