"I hitch-hiked from the east coast to the west coast (of florida)... and all you got was this crummy cardboard comic!"
Little portraits & vignettes of each spontaneous chauffeur, drawn on the backs of my destination signs. Rollerball + sharpie + white-out + duct tape + cardboard. This day happened a few years back; I just got around to assembling the art now.
I have met some of the most interesting people while hitch-hiking...
The infamous Brothers Nylon covered this classic Vince Guaraldi tune for their new "Dubcember" holidays album, and I happened to have sung the vocal for it. Enjoy the glorious public-access TV style video... Kinda brings me back to my roots! You can also check out the whole record here.
Bless Your So(u)lstice! There are more than enough Christmas songs... How about a Winter Solstice song? The Auroratones (that's my friends & I) just finished one of our very own... Here it is. It even has a nifty real-time "making-of" video, complete with sing-along / strum-along lyrics & chords... ENJOY! PS: i love you & i hope that you & yours are healthy & safe on this longest night of the year. XO Ivan

I just finished illustrating an anti-colonial, pro-environmental, science-fiction children's story... It will be published next year in East Timor, and is written in their lingua franca, Tetum. More details & images coming in the near future...!
Two cuddly raccoons sitting on a goat's back whilst sharing a pair of headphones plugged into a boombox playing dope trash-picked cassettes out in the grassy & starry field...
