Creole Love Call.

A cut & stained paper illustration of Duke Ellington leading The Duke Ellington Orchestra.

So I've been introduced to how freakin' easy it is to make your own nut butter. I am ready to drop my pencil for I have found my true calling.

In the spirit of this week's harvest, here's somethin' with a good jig. It'd work for all you Dandelion Junk Queens fans out there. There's a good range of European folk influence here, so download and get a good ol' West Coast concoction of transcontinental style!

A scratchboard illustration for The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. Here, we have Jekyll stumbling along a cobblestone street as he struggles against his deep descent into the maddening void of the psychotic Mr. Hyde! Gahhh!

You can run into some nice people on this here Internet. And those nice people can make some neat sounds every now and then. Between the accordion, saw, guitar, violin and all the other noises there's a... I dunno. I like it.
Hey, I'm tired. Not every sentence I type is going to be a winner.

World in a moment.

Sorry for the abundance of inactivity. My camera got a little busted and the things I've been working on lately wouldn't be very well accommodated by a scanner. I'll get more new things up soon!

Imagine if Jeff Mangum went to college in Santa Cruz. Or at least, that's what I get from it.

You're innocent when you...

An alternate cover for Einstein's Dreams by Alan Lightman done in Adobe Illustrator. It's an awfully good fiction that covers the whimsical, surreal dreams that plagued the exhausted young Einstein during the construction of his Theory of Relativity. Thought food, for sure.

I'm thinkin' of making a transition over to Wordpress. Things just seem so nice over there... I can have tabs. TABS.

That Sofia Albam sure got a set of pipes. Wood Spider may be doing a split with her if both parties can get their stuff together, so yeah, that'd be something to jump up and down about. The download link leads directly to her Bandcamp, on the grounds that she should know how many people are enjoying her sounds! So yeah, download away!

This month, she's touring through New England, so if you're around, you should check her out!

Edit: Turns out the transmission died in the bus Squinch Owl is touring in right now. Although, I should always suggest this, it'd be awfully generous if y'all could donate some amount of dollars or cents for the album download. These kids sure do need it.
