In the past, I have dreamed about the future by SketchChemist
In the past, I have dreamed about the future

This is the second piece in a series based on my dreams. About a month ago, I had a dream about visiting a fireworks store in Fort Crowe, Alabama, right over the Georgia state line when I was a kid. I remember walking in and being overwhelmed with awesomeness. Seriously, what kid doesn't love fireworks? There were M-80's, bottle rockets, jumping jacks, black cat firecrackers by the pound, huge mortars bigger than my arm, etc. I remember seeing all this stuff, and the colors and designs printed on the labels were crazy. All I could think about was going home and blowing up a GI Joe with a firecraker the size of my thumb (I think it ended up being a Snow Job GI Joe, and his face melted off). That is the way kids think. They don't live in the now, and when they see something that could potentially be badass, they think of the possibilities. That is what I'm trying to get at.
When did we lose the ability to think and plan ahead? When did we lose that childish trait that parallels precognition? We used to know what was going to happen. We used to plan for all the possible things that we could accomplish (even blowing a finger off). 9 times out of 10, we saw what we were going to do before we did it, and I think that is amazing. Yes, there were accidents and lessons learned, but did that stop us from being the kings of our castles? Did that stop us from taking chances? The answer is no, so why isn't that the case now that we are all grown up? Did responsibility beat that flurry of "what if" into a coma? Did consequence bury ambition in a shallow grave behind its trailer? What the hell happened along the road to make us forget about our dreams and future plans? Honestly, I think we just forgot...

Not my usual style, but I wanted to do something a little different. Lately, I've had a lot of time to just sit and let my mind wander. Usually, the things my mind goes to are equally divided between personal problems, ambitious ideas, and indescribable landscapes, creatures, and scenarios spawned from pure imagination. This painting is the culmination of the solutions to those problems, the materialization of those ideas, and the first step at documenting those imagined images. Hopefully I will be able to be able to show you guys some of the things my mind involuntarily sees. Magic.

"The third eye is a mystical and esoteric concept referring to a speculative invisible eye which provides perception beyond ordinary sight. The third eye often symbolizes a state of enlightenment or the evocation of mental images having deeply personal, spiritual, or psychological significance."-(taken from Wikipedia)

Chemistry trained college grad that draws...with his hands. My hands are deadly weapons used for cracking skulls and drawing stuffz that make heads 'splode from the utter awesomeness that spews onto what's in front of me. Anyways, enough of that BS and onto something more important...
I like street art, graffiti, geometry-based art (think M.C. Escher), colorful shit, intricate/detailed crap, horror related art, and anything that is crazy imaginative. Why do we have an imagination if it's not okay to exploit that shit.
Georgia based (Atlanta metro) citizen, artist, person, metal fan, punk fan, independent rap fan, and color enthusiast.
