Hi! I’m Irbisty, a oneironaut artist. The following text isn’t a story, but the actual vivid dream. No, no adjustments or modification were performed on the dream (neither while experiencing it at the moment nor while recording it after).
For those who are not familiar with my works: this dream has many references to other dreams, I’ve seen. So, you’re welcome to roam journals on my page, where you can find more dreams and, of course, check the gallery for more illustrations. The thing is… I experience not just random dreams (many and many of those too, but no point to talk about them) every night, but, also, rarer, yet, incomparably more interesting connecting dreams. By ‘connecting’ I mean that those dreams create a universe of their own. Imagine: you fall asleep and you’re in a parallel life of yours which is going at its own pace and develops just like your real one. That how it feels.

Hi! I’m Irbisty, a oneironaut artist. The following text isn’t a story, but the actual vivid dream that I had on 7th April 2019. Yes, it was heavy on details and clear enough to remember most of it without any significant loss after opening my eyes. No, no adjustments or modification were performed on the dream (neither while experiencing it at the moment nor while recording it after).

Don't leave me behind
You held my hand
Every gesture and every stand
Was made in your spirit
But now it fades like falling sand
You filled my life
With what I wanted in it
The space you have in my mind
Is now a pure mess of strife
Don't leave me behind
Please don't
Please don't take the elevator
Out of my life
Don't leave me behind
Please don't
Please don't take the backdoor
Out of my life
You were the focal point
Enabling my everything
All at once
Now my last vocal is gone
These tears are mine
Filled with sorrow
Hate and meaninglessness
My body is your shrine
Don't die
Please don't
Please don't drive
Out of my life
Don't die
Please don't
Please don't exit
Out of my life
The role you had
Was larger than
My eternal being
You fly away
With everything
That I ever had

An Unusual Dream
“Dreams are windows into our souls.” ~ Anonymous
I entered an aquarium past sliding glass doors, into a lobby with the skeleton of a whale suspended from the high-arched ceiling by metal chains. The old man at the front desk tipped his small blue cap to me in acknowledgement. A mustache extensive enough to hide his mouth curled up at the corners, and he gestured with one wrinkly hand toward the hallways leading away from the lobby.  
               
He was unusual, that old man—who had a small pair of angel wings attached to his shoulders.
               
More unusual still was the fact I was aware of being in a dream, and that the old man knew this was all a dream as well.
               
The above knowledge sent me scurrying off into one of the corridors, which thankfully soon soothed away some of my anxiety with the massive tube-like design o

Hello!

General info:

I am a cheerful, self-taught artist with a passion to create various things. I draw my dreams as a hobby.
My main interests are digital and traditional art, and papier mâché masks. There are many things that make me curious in the World, so feel free to write or ask about anything, I like to talk :) Also, I love to cook and collect local recipes, so if you have some nice dishes on your mind, then share it please! I’ll share mine.

I’m opened for commissions. Send me a note if you would like me to draw for you, I don’t bite!


Oneiric world:

I’m an oneironaut. For those who don’t know what that means, I can see lucid dreams. Lucid dreams are those where you are fully aware of being asleep at the moment. They allow you to see and do literally anything you want and it would be as good as real. Actually, lucid dreams feel more real than the reality itself. Think of it as a virtual reality, a matrix, made by your own brain, if you wish. Cool, right?

My dreams have always fascinated me. From my childhood they’ve been something mysterious and elusive. It feels like different realities that I dive into from night to night. I don’t know where I would find myself or what could happen, but it’s just like a series with many episodes. They are all linked, there are creatures, places and names that reappear from time to time, there are rules, and there is (a) whole enormous world(s) to discover. You can have a glimpse of it in my works.

In that dream space I’m known as a Recorder (according to my dreams characters’ words). Also, there are two creatures that I see repeatedly and have a chance to communicate with, lucid dreams or not. One claims to be Death and has for name Valkary and, the other one, is Kai, a dark shape-shifting creature, whose origin is still unknown to me. Those two make me question dreams and reality itself. They give a full impression of real beings with their own will and thoughts. There has not been even a single dream with them where I could distinguish my imagination. Are they a perfectly constructed product of my subconscious or the real deal? I don’t know and, either way, I find it amazing and worth sharing. You’re welcome to visit my journals to find more about them.


I hope you have a good day! If you like my works you can also find me on ArtStation and Twitter, where I post regularly:

After a long break, I finally have an illustrated dream to share.  I just need to prepare the text. So, in a day or two there will be a new original artwork Monkey D. Luffy (Smile) [V2] 
Wanna hear the last sleeping paralysis experience of my? 

Usually I get those while waking up... (but, no, sleeping paralysis isn't something often occurring in my case. It's a quite rare event, yet, I find it oddly entertaining.) So, this one happened yesterday and it took me off guard since I got it straight after accidentally falling asleep after my alarm. Damon eye roll   Of course, I had no idea that I was asleep at this point. 

I was in my blanket cocoon with closed eyes and I suddenly start feeling slightly colder air on my face as if some window or the entrance door was opened. I was sleepy and way too comfortable to go and check straight away, so, instead I tried to think logically "Windows were closed the last evening and the door... the door. Hm. Could my husband forget to lock it? No, I don't think so." I relaxed and for the next few moments nothing was happening, yet I still could feel the cold air, which got noticeably cooler. 
My thoughts got broken by low male voice in the corridor, just outside of the bedroom. My hair moved on my head.  I couldn't understand what it was saying, but it was enough inhuman and freakishly scary to be sure that it was someone dark. "Ok, he definitely forgot to close the entrance door"- with this enlightening thought I tried to understand what that creature was saying. Well, no positive results were here, but it was repeating one phrase over and over like some enchantment. 
The door that had been separating me from the intruder was already half-opened. Now I could feel the voice getting closer, the door moved. 
Normal thing would be to, finally, open my eyes and look at the door. Yes, it would be, but I couldn't. Of course I tried, but, hey, welcome to a sleeping paralysis, I physically was enable to move a muscle. That confused me at the moment. I didn't know that I was asleep. I was convinced that all of it was actually happening.
And here is the funny part. I was constantly trying to analyse the situation and keep calm... So, I had to react somehow, do something about the possibly-not-human-dark-intruder-in-my-flat-that-came-without-an-invitation. Right? Right! I wasn't scared of that creature, whatever it was, though, just utterly annoyed. I was confident that I could easily deal with it. A spine-chilling dart entity? Meh... not the first time. But. BUT! A horrible thought came to my mind "The entrance door was opened! and that means... that my cat was, most likely, already somewhere downstairs or even outside of the building!!!! F*****CK!!!!! WHERE IS MY STUPID CAT?!"  PANIC!  
I had enough adrenaline and will to jump out of the bed and rush pass whoever was standing in the doorway to find my cat, that I twitched in the reality as I woke myself up and opened my eyes to look at the door (still expecting to see an intruder). What I saw was my cat laying on far end of the bed and looking at me with a disapproval face. Lol. 

That was hilarious to discover that my twisted subconscious considered my cat thousand times more important than a dangerous intruder in the flat. Haha. Priorities first XD Thanks to all those dreams with dark entities that made me immune to fear of monsters even when sleeping paralysis strikes. 

The moral of the story: don't miss your morning alarm Thumbs Up SPN  
NickYoung Confused Meme  Huh. Some deviant blocked me today without any explanations. Um. I'm really puzzled. I'm not even sure that I've ever said to him/her more than "thanks" or "welcome". And even if there was some exchange with comments (which I can't find)... c'mon. I've been nice to, literally, everyone no matter what. Feels so unnecessary and over the board to block like that. Makes me feel sad. 

I'd understand if I was spamming all around, being rude, or stalking people, but I don't do dodgy stuff like that. So... what's the point then? Do I miss something?

If I happened to make someone else feel bad or uncomfortable, my deepest apologizes. It was definitely not on purpose. okaay....

Hi everyone!

First of all, big THANK YOU to all of you following and commenting on the dream journals and that messed up dream world of mine.

 

The last year was something :) 37 or so… dreams with Kai and Valkary posted here, some illustrations… Oh boy XD

 

As you could notice, there was is no journal for the December 2018 and there won’t be one, unfortunately. That’s because both dreams went directly to the book.  And that’s the reason why I am writing this journal right now. The book. It’s getting real and I want to talk about it. 

 

The plan for 2019 is to focus on writing/editing and illustrate everything nicely. I have enough material, so it going to be just fine. However, that also means that there will be no more monthly journals for an uncertain amount of time. I’ll try to post some occasional journals with illustrations (and other illustrations with dream creatures) when possible, but that won’t be a priority. I mean, you want a good book, right? So, yeah, that’s why.

 

So, brand new illustrations and a set of dreams you’ve never read earlier await you in the book. But there won’t be just raw dreams like in my journals. No. This time there are explanations and ‘the whole picture’ of the dream world with its odd connections from night to night and my actual life. A few strange moments from the experience and how it all works from ‘their’ point of view. Sounds exciting, huh?

 

…And, for that reason, I want to know what you would expect to find in this book. I’m going to give as much explanation and clarity as I can. So, I need a little help to navigate, so I won’t miss anything interesting. And since you've read the journals and know some bits…  that’s the great moment to talk. Do you have any questions or request after all those journals? I’ll try to include/answer on your comments in the book. Anything that interests you in particular? How lucid dreams work, or something about entities (Valkary, Kai, recorders, or else), or the connected dreams… have some other requests?  Anything that on your mind. Write your questions/requests in the comments below :)

 

Cheers!
