Illustration Friday - Crunchy

This week's Illustration Friday theme is "crunchy" and this was the very first thing that popped into my mind when I thought about that word. I used to get these recurring dreams (or nightmares) where all of my teeth would fall out and I would feel them rolling around in my mouth. When I'd wake up I would be left with this very real feeling of my mouth being full of marbles. This is the only instance in which my dreams have left me with such a vivid waking impression and it was never a pleasant experience. It was a very gross feeling, but also very, very crunchy.

Oh my gosh, I totally relate to your drawing...I have those kind of dreams way too often. My teeth usually overgrow my mouth and then chip apart... and the other night they just plain turned to powder when touched... I hope looking at your picture doesn't cause me to dream this tonight ack!

i would totally have the same dream! i think i read about it meaning something very ominous, but i think it just means i need to go to the dentist more often...
