Who is Dreamie, and what is Dreamie in a Bottle?

~The Who~

The little white ball of mischief. "Dreamie" enjoys adventure! One small world isn't enough for this doughboy, he must venture out and discover more! Fortunately, I've managed to catch him and bottle him up for you, but don't open! He's a lot faster than he looks...

The character himself was actually born during my stint in Japan as an assistant English teacher, where I would draw him on students' work when marking. I would draw little scenarios of him interacting with elements on the page, often mischievous. Seeing the smiles on the students' faces got me thinking, "hey, maybe there's something here that people like." I decided to make this tiny doodle into something bigger, and so Dreamie in a Bottle was born!

~The What~

Dreamie In A Bottle was actually a long-running thought process that finally came to fruition during the pandemic of 2020. After much reflecting, I came to the decision that my love for art and hands-on crafting was going to waste as a hobby. I wasn't satisfied with the prospect of spending the majority of my time in mundane jobs when I could be spending it making things that make people smile.
The concept of Dreamie is "think big but make it small", so naturally miniature worlds with massive detail followed. I've always aimed at challenging myself creatively, and what better way to do that than going microscopic! XD
I'm still learning - the creative process is always a learning curve - so come along and share this journey with me here. Feedback is always welcome!
