From Jan. 1, 2014 to Jan. 1, 2015, Leslie Stein took advantage of bouts of insomnia, and drew one page of comics each night at midnight. The result is Bright-Eyed at Midnight, a dreamy collage of watercolor images and words, with themes and scenes spanning from Stein’s 1980s childhood, to playing rock and roll, to hanging out at bars, to dreams, to artist’s block.

Below, you’ll find an exclusive preview of the book’s first few pages. Find Bright-Eyed at Midnight on shelves Aug. 8:
