Ibby has been an avid surfer for most of his life. A few years ago, he bought some land in Mexico (on the Pacific coast), declared himself "Mayor" of his village, and now has a surfing retreat. (The picture above was NOT taken at his Mexican shack.) Having written most of the music for this CD on the beach in Mexico, Ibby wanted a "Beach Boys feel" for the artwork. In addition to the "beachy" front cover (and an actual photo of Ibby surfing on the back cover), I re-created a famous Beach Boys shot for the inside of the booklet, with Ibby as all five Beach Boys.
