The dog appears more often than other animal in dreams. It depicts our natural drives that are well socialised, but still have the tendency to revert back to the spontaneous or ‘wild’ state quite easily. For instance our anger might usually be well under control, but if someone teases us we might surprise ourselves by the amount and strength of our anger. But the dog is often a sign or enthusiasm – as can be observed so often if we have a dog. See animal

Similarly our sexuality may be usually expressed in a socially acceptable way, but if we are in a situation where our sexual pleasure is stimulated or allowed easy expression we might deeply shock other people and ourselves by what we do. It can also represent easy expression of such aspects of ourselves as aggression – maybe because dogs show their teeth easily – sexuality, especially male sexuality, friendship. Also the parts of self we usually keep out of sight, but which may express spontaneously. The dog as an example of intuition is shown in the following dream.

Example: Was crawling through a tunnel underground. I was now in a dreary, dismal, drab Edwardian type room. My mother, father and dog, Tramp, were also there. It was quite a big room. Tramp went up to the fireplace and put his paw up under the shelf as if pointing. I looked and saw he was indicating a crevice under the shelf. I felt there and found papers in there, but also that there might be fingers in there touching mine. I said this to my father, but he did not reply. The hole was getting bigger all the time, and the room darker.

This shadow never left Paul. His brother John, who, maybe because he was that much younger, or maybe because his character was always lighter in spirit than Paul’s, never seemed to be as affected. John had a much tougher war than Paul, being one of only 12 soldiers, from his platoon of 80, to survive the Battle of Cambrai. Yet, he had a comparatively happy life after the war, locking his memories away, becoming a successful painter and illustrator, with a pleasing, superficial style, unlike Paul’s haunted, restless work.

In 1921, after the death of a close friend, an alarming encounter with his unconscious father (who had not died as Paul had feared), and the accumulated post-traumatic stress of the war, Nash passed out, and remained unconscious for a week. After he recovered, he never painted another person. The voice he’d discovered during the war never left his work, even when painting the most pastoral of landscapes. He managed to keep the depression that killed his mother at bay, using his landscape painting to express his innermost feelings, and finding, in the woods at Iden, the Wittenham clumps, the standing stones at Avebury, his favourite and most profoundly affecting places, solace.

Best known for his Sandman collaborations with Neil Gaiman, McKean's own graphic novel Cages  won multiple awards for Best Graphic Album. Here is his new original graphic novel based on the life of Paul Nash , a surrealist painter during World War I. A real soldier’s memoirs, a moving piece about how war and extreme situations change us, in Nash’s case by turning his landscapes into powerful and fantastical psycho-scapes.

Dave McKean is an illustrator, photographer, comic book artist, graphic designer, filmmaker and musician. His work incorporates drawing, painting, photography, collage, found objects, digital art and sculpture. After a trip to New York in 1986 during which he failed to find work as a comics artist, McKean met writer Neil Gaiman and the pair collaborated on a short graphic novel of disturbing childhood memories, Violent Cases , published in 1987.

Standard yahoo fare, full of unshaven rednecks, high-speed car chases, and countless vehicles that conveniently burst into flame at the slightest provocation.
