Poem for Sunday Shake
I had painted in October, inside the tune of the day
Was lured by autumn’s crisp ink
Central to the song you came, internal colors
Titian, untitled and cool.
Shake it off, shake it off.

Beam the Ghoulie Bike to the surface of the planet. Ride or drift through the Martian desert or an ice moon at the edge of the galaxy overflowing with strange aliens and rogue robots. With air to ground Teleportation ability this motorcycle is a high-speed terrain vehicle that is the perfect mode of planetary  travel or  intergalactic post-apocalyptic road rage.

Ahoy, Matey: More Art!

Optivion - Creative artist

What am I doing this month?
I am slowly working on being a bit more clever about counting my time as an artistic entrepreneur. Specially if you travel every few months.
Remember social media and marketing take away from the creative act. Focus on the work and hopefully everything else will start coming together. So keep playing music, writing, drawing and stay creative.

Audrey Archangel

Audrey came from the clouds:
She played on the golden
She did not know I slept
She kept vanilla pockets!
And smiled through breakfast.

From her hand a sword:
From the print a star
From the dark a wink
That light, that magic!
She left for the holiday.

March Monster Poem

Chomped hours and youth.

Adios March monster?
Milleniums dance party?
Chart-topping savings?
The pursuit of Keeping Up?

Youth follows winter’s trail,
Smart phones have prevailed!

Like texting black holes.
Skate or die in summer said Achilles.

You like winter are perhaps unkind.
You like spring are perhaps less blind.

Misfit full of warmth.
Age’s vision is small,

Youth is love and bold,
We grow weak and cold.

Reboot because we no longer rewind.

Beyond the dead we will take a walk:
Fondly remembering the remains cut from stone.
The rebels authentic, bright sweeping falls!!
*
*
*
Beyond the gates we will take a rest:
Once the roses dry, antiquated thorns drew blood.
The rain murmuring, white sunny memories!!
*
*
*
Beyond the steps we will brake a lock:
Fiercely calling the chants from bones .
The uniforms youthful, stained magic rises!!

Kyoto Garden Wormhole

Optivion - Kyoto Garden Wormhole

*

*

While in Kyoto I made a piece or artwork titled: The Lady and the Wormhole.
The gardens in the city set a mood of serenity and quiet embrace. I was working on a short story about a woman who could travel through space using her garden as the vehicle. I had a dream about her wearing a blue kimono using the small magical landscape to travel through time. In Japan the landscape is part of the history of the town or the prefecture. The Shinto religion is ancient in the country and it holds trees, springs and mountains to be places of spiritual power. It would seem any of the gardens I visited would have the possibility for intergalactic transformation, well at least in my imagination.

Godspeed, Walter White

walter white by Optivion 'Breaking Bad'

( “I liked it” )

They’ve shut down the government over affordable health insurance for millions of Americans.
What would Walter White think?

American greed and the American dream, a chemistry teacher with only a few months left to live finds himself trying to figure out a way through the health system and takes the path of cook, genius and destruction.

I will miss watching the characters do their dance every week, I was lucky to stream the show early on from the land of Japan.
One man rising against the odds, but someone who loved his lab and work more than his family.
At the end of the adventure Mister White built a machine gun that magically appeared out of the trunk of his car and destroyed his enemies when he pushed his last work of art, the remote.

Calling The Wizard.

Calling the wizard - Optivion

(Watercolor and Ink)

~Another wizard,

I can shoulder it my self, thy trust in the stars.

A walking book of spells, dragon holds the key, the night’s structure,
Silence has crossed.

Thee with the sight, you look quite a vision.
You wanted it too.

I will get the music started.

If you came for an explanation?
Maybe I am some kind of freak.

Ocean, flash, dream:
Focus!

Jack O’ Goldbot

I am conjuring up some pre Halloween fun. “Jack O’ Goldbot ” is on the case.  Lately I have been spending more time with nature and away from technology.  The future is here:  Drones, iPhones, Wi-fi and self-tracking computers all following your data and your path. Technology with its silver claws making you feel good about being connected to cyber friends and golden apps.  All is well, but perhaps the companies that organize all your data might use it against you in the coming years. Privacy, credit and health insurance data will all be collected under your identity or your given number, muahaha!

You are energy in a vessel exploring the moment.

あなたという存在は、エネルギーを載せて「今」を進む探索機です。

~Every moment is special.

Visual dialect can open imagination and action clears the static.

If you are still:  you are on a journey,
If you are moving:  you are on a journey.

Don’t make assumptions.
knowledge has a voice.
Assumptions are useless if you don’t have information.
Language is knowledge. Creativity is part of language.

Everyone has their own journey.
A journey starts with an idea.

Ideas provide a call to action and imagination is the processor.

On your  journey, do your best and treat people with kindness.
The light comes from the action. Find your place to breathe and open your eyes.
God is light and your existence means God is aware.

~You are energy in a vessel exploring the moment.

I-4  Florida Mural Proposal

While visiting the city of Tampa, I was approached by a friend to take part in a proposal for a mural for interstate : 4 (I-4)  a 132.298-mile (212.913 km) state Highway located entirely within the US state of Florida. The vision I had approaching the proposal was mainly a representation of historical characters. The main focus of the mural was to capture part of the history of Florida and the Tampa bay area through figures that represent change inside and outside the environment. The mural contains: a Calusa warrior, gold-hungry Conquistador, the legend of the pirate : Jose Gaspar,  a florida panther, Vicente Martinez-Ybor, Hernando de Soto and Rough Rider: Theodore Roosevelt. The characters are connected to the growing strange metropolis. The Republican convention will be held in Tampa later this month. “Lions tigers and alligators? …ooh my..”
