This was only the first half of the dream. After that I drove a short distance before hitting a bat falling out of the sky. I kind of stopped and three girls were behind me and one of them asked “Did you just hit a bat?” I tried to park the van, but I think it kept going even in park. (I think Fork Lifts kind of do that.) So I ended up crashing it into another parked van. More like just bumped into. Anyhow, I go to pick up the bat, but I’m kind of worried because I don’t know any wildlife rehabilitater’s numbers. So then some guy and his kids come out of their house and the guy offers to help the bat, but asks me to hold on to his iguana. So I end up with an iguana and a bat and the iguana bites onto the bat’s head. Somehow I get them apart, but then the bat gets onto the iguana’s back and the iguana flies onto a tree branch. And then I think one of the kids tries to get them both down by poking up the tree with a broom. Feel free to explain the symbolism in that.
On a technical note, meh. I’m trying to work on my technical skills, but still want to put stuff out in the meantime. So you’ll have to suspend your disbelief and pretend my hands look like hands. I’m also weak on making faces look like how I want them to look. The woman should have resembled Julian Moore. And that’s supposed to be an old Volkswagon van in the last panel. (Have no idea why I was driving one.) I also did this all on one 9″ x 12″ bristol board kind of like the SAHM’s of late, which I think might be quicker for a piece with a lot of panels, but I can’t do as detailed work as Matt can on that small scale. Ah well. One panel at a time.
