City of Bees

Dreamed 1994/8/2, drawn May 2007, by Chris Wayan

This comic tells the same dream as the prose-story The Bees' Answer. Rendering one vision in two different media is something I highly recommend for all dreamers. You learn things you don't expect. Materials pull and push you.

Or they get you stuck! I wasn't satisfied with prose and longed for years to draw the dream, but couldn't convey how the City of Bees felt. Then, last year, I was taking a design class, and in the middle of it realized I simply needed to make everything hexagonal--panels, speech balloons, everything--and go from there.

Or maybe I was just ready at last to face the Bee Doctor's diagnosis.
