Dagger of the Mind

Sean's blog is a veritable treasure trove of illustration ideas coming from his fantasy stories. This oil pastel painting was inspired by his blog entry of the same title.


  1. "Daggers of the Mind" was a purely random phrase. Up to now I still have no idea what it means. :)

  2. Well, it was still a pretty cool title. Maybe it deserves a story?

    On this same premise: Scott McCloud had an idea generator consisting of random images, which a comic creator could then use a spur for starting a story.

    Hmmm, I think "Daggers of the Mind" or similar title was actually the title of a Star Trek episode.

  3. Google results - it's the title of a Star Trek episode that's notable for being the first appearance of the Vulcan mind meld. "Dagger of the Mind" is also a reference from Macbeth, though. Since I'm a Macbeth reader but not a Star Wars viewer, I probably subconsciously pulled this from Shakespeare.
