Ymaginary” derives from “ymage,” 

which is a portrayal of what you have in mind.

About Ymaginary

The Clyr Ink Press website was originally designed to profile cognitive linguistic ymage research and its many applications (accompanied by tutorials and editorials), as well as to make ourselves readily available to provide professional consultation and community support. Over the course of several years, I added creative projects related to my personal pursuits.

One day, I came up with a very short piece of music that really wanted to be a fanfare; so, in order for that to be proper, I needed a media studio for it to  proclaim, which of course required an ABN, website, logo, and a tailored typeface… so I created those things.

And now that the studio exists, I shall have to set about making some movies and so forth, and also polish up the works that have been perpetually in progress.

So, while Clyr Ink Press continues to hold the research and the writing projects, including the apps, Ymaginary Studies will cover everything else.

This fanfare is in progress:

Profiled Projects

A parent sent me this Pinterest pic. (I have blurred the face more.) I tracked it to MayWeHelp, but they were shutting down, so I just built one.

This sling provides support for drawing.

The student’s face is Mona-ed for privacy.

• I only have basic sewing machine skills, so I bought mop pads as they were soft and already hemmed. The grommets were placed with a GoldStart tool.

• The eyebolt was inserted through the cap, bolted, and then glued in place. The lower end of the pipe has a wide PVC adapter so that it rests firmly over a bolt on the wheelchair frame.  The pipe is bent (by main strength) to hang over the chair. You can see that a spring clamp holds the middle of the pipe in place below the headrest.

• A threaded chain quick link connects the eyebolt to a pulley.

• Each end of the ⅛” elastic cord goes to a CamJam® cord tightener. 

“No More Masking”

• I prefer to use AI only for whatever components I do not yet have the skills to create with my NI.

• So I wrote the lyrics myself, but I used the Suno app to create the music with the tagged lyrics. I used Rotor to make this lyricized video, which has a background taken from their clip library (which I will eventually replace with my own work).

•  The Style prompt in Suno was: “Hybrid of trap and dubstep, featuring heavy bass drops, hypnotics drops, Cyberpunk rhythms, and electronic mayhem.”  That style was derived from someone else’s experiment.

• The rendition of the lyrics by the AI has mismatches, but the Suno app doesn’t let you make those corrections (yet) without generating an entirely new iteration, which ends up creating an entirely new set of voices and new music. I am pretty happy with this, especially the way that the AI devloped the outro, so I left it alone. That outro is two extensions blended in Audacity.

And then

I decided to try out Udio, which is still in beta (as of 2024-05-19). It has inpainting that Suno does not (albeiit it isn’t working great yet), plus you can add material to either end of the song. Udio gives you much shorter clips; however, the audio quality is better. Udio did not click with the types of styles that I was trying to set up, and the one that i used with Suno (above) ended up being whittled down to little more than “Alternative confrontational rock.”

Which means that i ended up with this rendition:

So… yeah. In case it’s not entirely obvious, I am releasing a bit of pent up frustration over having largely led a (raggedly) masked life.

Creativity resists compression.

Various Projects

All manner of personal pursuits combine with the professional roles and services described over at Clyr Ink Press, and some of those are reflected in the various projects displayed below… basically just for fun.


Projects related to writing and publishing are linked over to Clyr Ink Press.


Any sort of drawing and coloring projects will in this section.

Puppets and Costumes

Costumes are puppets operated from the inside.


I like to splice stuff together for fun (but the end product is often left only roughly finished once I have amused myself).


These are various sound files.

Furniture and Substantial Items

The notion of ‘furniture’ is used loosely. Big, tangible  stuff will tend to go here.

These are all places into which I find it inspiring to occasionally extend my sense of Self.

These studios are the homes of amazing creatives.

These materials are ingredients, replicate masses. and other components.

These are specialty vendors.

While there is value in being able to adapt whatever you happen to have on hand, there is also a whole lot to be said for having just the right tool for a task.
