Portrait of a Teenage Insomniac

Portrait of a Teenage Insomniac by z-nao-factor

This drawing by Portland-based illustrator Nyssa Oru seems to represent well the confused world of dreams and nightmares.  The title leads us to believe that the artist depicts what happens when an inability to sleep brings creatures from dreams and nightmares into the real world.  I like the confusion, chaos and unpredictability of the space in the image.  You can look at this drawing for a long time and continue to discover new (and bizarre) elements in it.
