Art Thoughts, Dreams, Funk

Night before last, I dreamt that I was doing some art. I drew a couple of different things in this dream, including a very cheerful polar bear and some kind of '80s-themed cheetah dude with a random Rubik's Cube floating in space above his head. I then (and this made sense in the dream) nailed some largish metal pegs into some of the colored squares of the Rubik's Cube to, I dunno, add flourish or something.

The polar bear came out perfectly, exactly the way I keep wanting my art to look but it doesn't. The cheetah dude was okay, closer to my usual style, and the Rubik's Cube was a disaster, especially with the pegs which got all bent out shape when I was nailing them in place.

For some reason, that dream stayed with me all day yesterday, and was related to (but not the cause of) the funk I was in. It's still with me this morning, but it's more abstract now so I'm trying to parse out what (if anything) it might mean. A few times yesterday I toyed with the idea of trying to actually draw the polar bear, but in the end I just didn't feel up to the task. Honestly, I wasn't good for much of anything yesterday but playing Solitaire.

Hopefully I'll be a bit more useful today. I need to put that towards my job, alas, but a Gneech has gotta do what a Gneech has gotta do.
