Chris Cornell Dusty Wings

'Chris Cornell' soundgarden art by OptivioN

 ~Great talent, the mighty lead man from Soundgarden and AudioSlave is gone and here are my thoughts:
Most people in the world or American poor neighborhoods don’t have access to Psychotropic Drugs, but Rock Stars with success like: Prince, Elvis and Chris have plenty of money and access to all the new magical pills to help balance your mood, make the seconds happier and eventually kill the artist. We know more about black holes than the human brain. I feel like we are monkeys in labs making drugs to help you make sense of life, with no complete knowledge of the true science behind the chemical potions we induce to be simply, happy. Drugs do not cure drugs or bring Santa early. Read the labels on everything and you might find the omnipotent side effects any pharmaceutical drug contains, it is written: why is anyone surprised?
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to convince the world he didn’t exist.

It is all right in front of you!

Looks like you need a friend!

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!

Optivion -New Year is here

Perhaps the most important of all, sing your favorite song, loud and clear and don’t worry so much about the harmony!

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.

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.

Mellow Draft

Ocean Alex

If you do not find the mellow in the word happy, in the so called present, you might never find it.

Ocean Bridge

Look for a bridge and cross it!

When you have to stand against the wind, stand tall, but always bend from the force of a typhoon.

Dreams are color lightning, ripened glass and solar storms you should always write down or sketch.

Muahaha!

Art is light.

(Thought of the week)

There are no written rules, there are no true patrons, do your thing.
Art is light, choose light as your weapon.

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.

Blue

Optivion - Blue Harmonica
Blue song, blue art.
The harmonica measures existence, but keep playing to say the least.
Solar hours of worship, the dark water listens.
And the black forest spins a process.

Pack and move on.

While thus to sleep will have a dream,
Polish mercury with ink.
Messenger indiscreet.
Sit and elect the next stroke.
The waves ferocious.
Beauty swims.

〜魔法のハーモニカ.

A Tree of Life

Tree of life

A luminous twisted wood
Chorus pulp of the ancient
In any age experienced-
Rings run endless spirals.

A timber floats above
Cloaked Chapter of the seasons
In any being wiser-
Ruling living scripts modestly.

A structure bound divine
Calling branches of the green
In any sense stronger-
Roaring breath feeds you.

A perennial code whispers
Circumjacent pull of the vein
In any task elegant-
Remnant rush silently regenerates.

Cheers?…. (December 21,2012)

optivion - goodbye 2012

 

Time … thou infinite toast gently so greeting eternity.
~Le Optivion
(Circa 2012?)

Quiet Storm

Before the storm
A child jumps the wave
From the coast.

………………

Smiling from the field
In a silent sakura mist
– Island flower burns.

………………..

The ancient mask

siren shouts out

Vapor of fire

Kyoto X Gang

The simple concept of the Kyoto X Gang is that under a new cloud of radiation there is an increasing anti-mutant Movement. The Batter-Bunny decides to train three young mutants to use their powers for the benefit of Japan, and to prove mutants can be good. Batter-Bunny recruited Yuta Bowie, Nana Nene and Mizu Girl.

Elaine of Carbonek

My version of Elaine of Carbonek. A wise woman and creature of intrigue.
She is a character with animalistic attraction and secreted intentions of pursuit.
She revealed the Holy Grail to Lancelot and became the mother Sir Galahad,
“The noblest of knights”

Basteina Robotic Vampire Queen Vixen by Optivion

Basteina likes long walks in the beach, tango night, plasma chip cookie dough, sugar coated smilodons, late night with Desmodus rotundus and all kinds of cats!
