    Anyone else get night terrors?

    I swear, this happens to me all the time if Im really seriously drawing (where its halfass decent). Or if Im not having to fight to get down what Im seeing. But if I keep at it, I get night terrors from lucid dreaming. The sensation of drawing feels great, and its the only reason I do it, but then when I go to sleep, this shit happens and I feel exhausted the next day even if I slept alot..... Happened all the time as a kid.

    Nope. I have had some daffy dreams about guys and gals from this website, though. Like one where I stabbed Alan Lee because one of Marko's drawings half-electrocuted me.

    I scream, laugh, punch, and talk in my sleep nearly everynight. I've had horrible dreams all of my life, and have screamed uncontrollably for years.

    My poor husband puts up with it all. I once woke myself up punching him in the face. No lie. It wasn't a hard hit, but it was in right in his cheek, near his eye. That poor poor guy. He actually laughed about the whole incident. It's like the force of the punch woke me up, too. I don't remember the dream at all.

    He once told me I was trying to do a really bad New York accent in my sleep. I have no memory of anything I say ever. I just get to hear all the weird stories when I wake up in the morning.

    This is why I never stay the night as a guest in anyone's home. They would all have heart attacks.

    I dreamt I was Guy Pearce and I was riding a piece of plywood through the air like a flutter board. These two guys with machine guns thought I was going to attack the school and tried to shoot me down, so I went back home to wrestle Rasputin. All of this was in the animation style of Cowboy Bebop.

    So… no, I don't get night terrors.

    LOL, I have CA dreams too... alot more since the mention of the Montreal workshop as well. They aren't about stabbings, just about what might go on at the WS, and what the people I'll meet there might be like. I once dreamt Marko, Loomer (whom I've never seen a picture of, and didn't see his face in the dream... weird), and I were talking about art in some lounge. Marko just kept on giving teethy smiles, sitting quietly, and nodding alot, while Loomer and I chatted. It was very strange and the only one I vaguely remember.

    I remember this dream where loomer and cotron were having uncomfortable sex in the back room of the Society of Illustrators. I was shocked, because when I woke up I remembered that it really happened.

    ok, this is for real. The other night, I had a dream I saw the second coming of Christ. He looked just like a regular uni student but with long hair and a beard (well....same thing i guess;p). Then a big group of us went to this house/mansion thing. Thats were it felt very "cult". Then we watched his miracle. It was a stormy sky, which he made three "tubes" of clouds fly toward the window then freeze. But as they came toward the windows they became super bright colours.

    The next night, I dreamt I had a time machine with my mates. But the thing could only go at about 4 miles an hour.

    I also laugh, converse, and swear (alot) in my sleep.

    When I bought my very first pistol, I had this dream where a burglar had broken into the house, and my new pistol could only roll the bullets across the floor towards him. I spoke about it to a few of my gun club friends, and more than a couple of them said they had similar experiences.

    OptimusDinkus - While my personal art has never caused this, I've found that work induces these the types of dreams you speak of. I dream about solving a particular programming program or technical drawing, and when I wake up, I realize I have to do it all over again in real life when I go in the next morning.

    Bummer. pld:

    And your fist feels like mush when it connects, and you throw each punch way too slowly? I hate those, too!

    A couple of years ago around this time, I was having a lot of nightmares involving shopping malls. In the first one I remember, the mall had a very old-fashioned city styling to it, with cobblestone streets and fancy street lamps. All the colors of the bricks had an earthy tone to them. I also remember the mall being enormous, like a bell tower but really spacious.

    Because of this, the lighting inside the building was pretty dim, with only a few spots being illuminated by lamps or corner stores—rarely was there sunlight, save from the ground level exit or the sparse sunroofing letting it filter through. The staircases dangled from the cieling like those construction paper mobiles you sometimes see decorating kindergarten classrooms. You could never really tell where they led from or to and, despite having many bends and corners to them, weren't held up or suspended by anything more than the ground they were anchored to. They also didn't have railings, which is why I fell off one in my dream.

    The second mall dream I remember was set in a mall built out of aquanauts Lego. I don't remember much except that it was really sunny and bright inside, and the staircases were really wide and made of that translucent blue "glass" that the aquanauts had. I fell through it, in fact! The rest of the dreams involved falling in some way through the interior of a really big mall and waking up in a cold sweat. Totally bizarre.
