Doctors without Borders

I'm still rather swamped, but I wanted to put this out there to help those in Haiti:

Please consider a donation to Doctors without Borders. To find out more about this organization and to donate, please visit:


I will be looking to eBay's Giving Works program to see if I can add Doctors without Borders to my list of donation recipients. I'll let you know and post my offering here.

I heard the news today, oh boy.


Early last Sunday, a gay man was attacked by a heterosexist assailant inside of a local, gay-friendly bar in the relatively accepting town of Santa Cruz.

This reminds me of the terrorist attacks by racists in the South, who were blowing up churches attended by Black people, which were located in Black neighborhoods.

Coincidentally, a friend told me about this video about a water buffalo calf being attacked by lions and crocodiles at a watering hole. It's kind of long, but worth watching until the end.

What I get from the video is this, and it applies to injustice everywhere: Fight back, and fight back together.

New from Ivan Chan Studio! Rapture Card Set


1 image
10 cards & envelopes

Yes, I've been busy and neglecting my verbal duties! My apologies.

I've had a few requests for this image to be one of my Little Beauties Art Cards, and I'm just getting around to it. It started as a special card for a special someone this New Year, and now I'm offering it to the public.

Little Beauties: Rapture Card Set is available both on Etsy and eBay, or you may contact me to purchase sets directly from my studio.

Wishing you boundless beauty in the New Year!
