I'd like to recall for you a dream I once had. I dreamed that I lay on my back in the middle of the woods, gazing at the stars and counting them one by one. As I lay, I enjoyed the wilderness sounds and beautiful trees. Even though the forest was thick, I was afforded a wide-open view of the sky.

Suddenly, the moon enveloped the entire sky. It was crashing towards the Earth and its entry into our atmosphere gave it an illuminating, orange glow. Though the thought sounds terrifying, I was not afraid because subconsciously I knew there was no impending danger. I basked in the intricate texture of the moon and the indescribable detail of its terrain. I could see it so well because it was now directly in front of me rather than perched into the sky, thousands of miles away.

This dream was a product of my subconscious and imagination. I was only privileged to this experience because unlike during daily activity, dreams are limitless and not hindered by our laws of physics. I thought that only during sleep would I be able to envision such fantasy with my eyes...until now.

In Daydreaming: The Art of Slawek Wojtowicz, I was astounded with the fascinating visions that existed upon each and every page. Artist, Slawek Wojtowicz, has an unbelievable eye coupled with the ability to harness the dreams that only my subconscious could produce. Not only can Wojtowicz see them within his mind's eye, but he can also create them through computer graphics and sometimes just acrylic paints! His unique combination of photography, graphics and artistic ability is absolutely breathtaking. Wojtowicz has redefined ART.

Format: Paperback
When I received my copy of this book I was literally blown away. I had been in love with Slawek's artwork for a number of years, anyway, and the opportunity to see such talent gathered into one book was a precious one. So often, art books are stingy on the number of color reproductions presented. Not so this time. Artwork forms the bulk of the book, along with Slawek's narrative. I can't tell you how many times I've pulled out this book at bedtime to dream over the paintings before bedtime, being taken to other galaxies in my sleep. A very nice feature of the book is where he illustrates, at the end, the process he goes through in creating an art cover for a science fiction novel or magazine. I would highly recommend this book for all ages. Not to be missed!

New to the world of science fiction, I was totally fascinated by the pictures and in awe that Slawek has such an elaborate imagination about a world that never existed for me until now! I thoroughly enjoyed learning about his love of science fiction as a boy growing up in communist Poland, again another world I appreciated a glimpse into. The detail and colors in his work are breathtakingly beautiful! I shared this book with my son, who is an artist, and was delighted as he was gripped by each page and was keenly focused on the tutorial. I highly recommend this book!!
