Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

The title of this artwork is obviously took from one of Goya's works, but used in a specific subject. The message is about creativity and imagination. The concept is telling that if you can get awake from "the sleep of reason" and use your best, but also your worst, you can grow in so many ways.

"The worst" is represented in this painting by the blue color of the hair, because blue is a negative color and red is a positive one, and that's how purple gives the enigmatic and positive vibe to this drawing.
