Self-portrait as a Dreamer

I am in a sketchbook exchange program and these are for the pocket in Aya's Moleskine.  The pocket is in the back of the sketchbook.  Aya's pocket says, "add dreams here" (Or something like that).  So even though I had previously done two pocket items, I did two quick little sketches of dreams for the dream pocket.

In my flying dreams, I am not always sure
if I am flying or falling.

Sometimes, I can walk through walls
in my dreams!

These are just little, done with gouche on red-colored card stock. They don't really look me, but they look sort of like my dream self.  I am never (or very rarely) old and fat in my dreams.

This self-portrait doesn't really look like me as a child or an adult, but is mean to represent my experience and thus is a self-portrait of my inner self.  (From a nightmare.)
