A portrait of Emily Dickinson from a bonus commission. It was wonderful that someone requested the creation of Lady Dickinson in a steampunk fashion. I have always been captive by her devotion to words. She seem to just experiment, be dauntless with rhymes and play with words. Dickinson kept many poems hidden, sending some to friends and only 10 poems from about 2000 poems are known to have been published in her active poetic years. Well here she is with a steampunk look, with her many keys, robotic robin, the dun bat necklace and the cricket is her utmost.
Of elegy to me!
Hello Internet orb, wishing all who stumble upon my words and simple blog, a creative and harmonious year. Once more I have constructed more music and artwork. Traveled a bit and learned a lot about people, myself, DNA tests, Scandinavian ancestry, rare harmonicas, NGC 2244, chocolate, coffee, departure, family and the idea of love within nature.
Returning to the deep questions and the slant answers between the fabric of current reality: The turning axis of the light machine, which often has a cylinder at its heart. Perhaps the universe is indeed a magical cylinder.
The process of creativity at the moment: a spindle consisting of linear components and new melodies connected to memories. My environment holding colorful sketches dripping with old paint while I super-glue ancient photos towards discrete elements that can be assembled and disperse mostly by visual interpretations and melodic sound-waves.
Imagine: A Luminous spindle, a unit of measurement used by faery folk, robotic shoguns, steampunk welkin vessels and intergalactic nebula tailors.
All the children with spooky tricks and lightning treats
Want candy from suburbia hounds and ghoulish housewives for a goblin’s feast
Knock, knock, take all you can with your little black hands
The bony gates open to the loud march bands from the wild crow lands
The last witch wakes counting all the doors as the haunting begins
Before the ghostly dance from forgotten graves speak of the hour at hand..
Myst and rain fall, so FIRE we call
CALLING FIRE! for fire frees all
So tonight, tonight,
The Werewolf seems once again lost deeply in the full moon’s embrace
The vampire cries for all the time the young lovers had waste
The Mummy just crumbles remembering her gaze
On this night, tonight,
Please do not forget, my lost ancient kin
Beneath the silly masks
We were all childhood friends.
Advance: That decade of stony discovery
Angle dip with a smile made from golden appetites
The backfill waste of energy loss
The last of the green eyes with combustible claws hides:
…..in the last of the wilderness
Beneficiation running black diamonds and somber fuel pumps
A franchise made of pure crop coal,
but remember eventually the black suits will fade
Shrubs, timbers, and ferns will rise from concrete wastelands
The conveyors will be solar and the wind will guide them.
“Spooky Moon Shake” From the album “Halloween Forecast”
Download on iTunes and Billboard
Here is a new jolly spooky tune: Halloween is my favorite time to reflect and zap things together. Just remember: do your thing, blend, create, dream, and stop when you want. Rules don’t apply to my music and artwork, so enjoy, shine or change.
No matter, there is always moonlight above the clouds.
Upon that night, when fairies call the light-hearted moon, their mistress dark,
The photos taken withered on the window, clouds perished;
Darkness had no need from all the candy on the coffee table.
Had fun on a dreamy trip to Burning Man, the gathering of giant gorillas, fire music and desert art that collects strange rich kids, neon time travelers and fem fatal tyrannical hippies in a delirious post-apocalyptic Nevada.

I was selected to be part of Beyond the Fiction NASA Social at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md
Composer Michael Giacchino and the National Symphony Orchestra at Wolf Trap were amazing: performing an enigmatic score from Star Trek: Into Darkness live! The discussion before the show was informative and wonderful, all about Star Trek’s influence on the NASA culture, Vulcan misfits, and the space race.
Between all Star Trek realms, we see the same consistency for space fashion, travel design, future exploration, and universal wonder.
In the meantime, human-bound stargazers can follow the stars into the night sky and find these soft-spacy digital images fun to absorb.
Below I have my digital interpretation of the Hubble Space Telescope from the control center and the upcoming secret ICESat-2 spacecraft mission!
Technological, creative, splintered, combatant, resilient and united with dreams of peace for every life: America is a work in progress, Happy 4th!!
June, aged chest in the old firehouse. We wonder!
Among rusty broken walls and a primordial fire extinguisher
Beyond the cracks and venerable tiled matrix
Camera-eyes capture the ghost of the last ladderman
Obsolete doors calling ancient smoke jumpers
Beauty holds no bounds even for the versed
You don’t have to put on that red light
German medusa with the golden hair was smiling
But I was patient and waited:
Harmonica with the skeleton key
Stoutness by my side: unsealed
The Plasma Ray Blues
All men do not suffer from the plasma ray blues
In the content of the stars we blend in timeless hues
Even deep cold comets were all made once of colors
Saturation on a saturday seems to be well covered.
A Happy birthday, zappy birthday to a brand new year. Wishing all a great luminous year. Create your environment with small blossoming dreams, make a sound you haven’t heard before and put it on the mix. Draw birds and nebulas and paint with your fingers, blindfolded.
Most importantly be kind to others.

A lion sleeps on
The dream evolves naturally blue
The sound slowly drifts
Ideas for The New Year
“Hold an umbrella in one hand and a surprise in the other!”
Find a new book, make some terrible art work. Get lost in a new city. Explore good magic and keep learning new skills! Write a poem, bake some cookies for a friend. Make a treasure map, and if you find a new key in the clue, make a copy!
Perhaps the most important of all, sing your favorite song, loud and clear and don’t worry so much about the harmony!
“Fire melts ice, always has, always will.”
Kumamon is Santa?
“Climb The Wall And Perhaps Reach The Castle”
The sun always rises.
Put some shade and color in your day.
Who cares what they say: Make some art!
What is light and what is shadow?
The piece below was influenced by a tax increase that pushed Japan’s economy into a recession.
Spooky! Been soundlessly working with sculpture.
Empires rise and empires fall
~Three for the road.
~Keep the fire and sharpen your spear.
Halloween-themed games are fun to play all year round. Nonetheless, I doubt any chills can come from the japanese multiplayer kawaii mayhem I am enduring, but I do love the magic atmosphere, fashionable strange friends and the whimsical video music. Find it all here: http://ameblo.jp/optivion/
I heard the calling of the undead on my way to Halloween Horror Nights and decided to stop by the safety of the harbor and check the paranormal section at the library and of course watch the spooky zombie prom.
“Here comes Halloween so ask your school librarian for a scary book”
Snow White might be a robot!
The price of fame.
Adrenaline Shot for the Tree of Life!
Had a season pass to Walt Disney World so I photographed a bunch of broken fairytale dreams and sweaty spooky characters walking around at the Magic Kingdom. I love Tokyo Disney, but the old attractions, mad fireworks, musical howling and dark Disney characters made Walt Disney a fun visit. Hot humid fantasy becomes a reality as you get lost and puke from heat exhaustion from the Florida sun burning a hole in your brain. I would recommend tracking down a map and heading towards Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square and my favourite: The Haunted Mansion.

All is being corrected on the third dimension, muahaha!
