Didactic 2: Nightmare


The image above provides the authors visual representation of the word nightmare.  The material used to create this image were inking pens and a brush pen. The word nightmare is visually represented through a lot of dark shadowy figures, drawing closer to the frightened man hiding him himself under sheets.
