Tornado Dreams book and prints

Katharine M. Dearwester



The stream of consciousness project began in 2014. For 3 years, the concepts persisted and manifested themselves into pencil drawings that were then shared via social media, then applied for as permanent installations on skin as tattoos. To document the project, I decided to bring 50 of them together as a collection in book form.

Tornado Dreams is a collection of 50 chosen stream of consciousness drawings assembled together and in chronological order in one book. Introduction, process, images, and inspirations for each piece, along with 5 limited edition prints only available and included with this book.

The chosen 50 streams were part of the TORNADO DREAMS exhibition on September 2nd, 2017 at Spiritus Tattoo/Musca Gallery in Columbus, Ohio.
