Sleep Patterns

I was given a page from the Brewer's Dictionary Of Phrase and Fable, the brief was to choose a word and run with it. I started with the words 'Magic Carpet', which lead me to experiment with line and shape and also helped me discover a love for Arabian and Moroccan patterns. These experiments lead me to play with light and shadow and with the positions in which people curl up and go to sleep, this being the result.
