I had this dream half a year ago on on March 27 2020.
Upside down helicopter man fly over a city.
Rotor stopped and dropped to the ground, captured by a GoPro camera.
Rescue workers brought a big net rushing towards the camera view, which I replaced by an ambulance view for easier drawing.

A day of several drawings

I remembered 3 weird dreams earlier at around 4:30 am and 6:00 am this morning, and decided to draw them out.

Before that, during an eye break, I spotted a rooftop worker.

This is the first dream, about an eel tank.

This painting is inspired by the name of a prior intern who is still collaborating with me.

Mongolia trip dream

I was flying to Mongolia (world map with fly route and Mongolia border).

Upon arrival at the airport, I looked for gate 20 for bus exit (looking at the terminal map).

Somehow, I went to south gate 8 for Eva lounge filled with hello Kitty stuff (casino like setup).

I went back to terminal, trying to print my photo from a computer as required to board the bus, and found out it is 11:35 am so missed the hourly bus by 5 minutes (computer terminal on the right, terminal window on the left with the road and bus stop visible).

I then woke up at 5:27 am (March 5 2020).

Time perception

During my dream earlier this morning, someone (God?) was telling me what time really is. It is neither a one-dimensional curve nor a two dimensional-ribbon. But the dream did not continue to reveal the rest of the answer.

2:46 am dream

I woke up at 2:46 am to record this dream, from which I plan to draw later before my visual memory fades.

We were attending an eye-brow party but somehow waiting at two adjacent bus stops.
One coming to my stop at 8:10 pm. The next one is 5:10 am the next day, so I hopped on.
You were still sitting at your bus stop bench.
I did not know which station to take off, so I loudly asked you, through the bus window.
You did not respond, so I yelled why you did not answer me.
The person lifted her face and turned to another person who replied that I did not ask a question.

Early morning dream

I was taking an exam. I thought the duration is 3 hours, so I decided to finish a paper review first. The review took me about 80 minutes, but then the examiner informed me that the exam is actually 90 minutes. I tried to finish the exam in 10 minutes only to find out that the paper is made of a wet towel so I could not write anything.

Waking up in the middle of the night, sometimes I can remember ideas from my dreams.

Dream this morning about Hong Kong

I slept inside a standing shower room, with my body balanced by my backs and legs against the plastic walls.

Afterwards I went to a laundry shop, which charged me 10761 HKD for 4 pieces of cloth. (It usually costs me about 30 to 50 HKU for a weeks’ worth of laundry.)

Pedro turning into a werewolf

This is yet another vivid dream I had earlier this morning.

I was waiting in line for I3D electronic theater with Pedro, chatting with other folks happily.
All of a sudden, he bent over the floor and started to vomit.
His bones deformed, with nails were protruding out of his fingers.
One of the two bear-like eastern European guys standing around us bit off Pedro’s right index finger tip, and that settled him down.
The eastern European guy told me that my bite would not help, implying I am a vampire.
