Ian Hermès Babylon (he/him) is an artist & gentleman witch of Totaunt & Moswetuset (now Boston & Quincy), whose home is on the lands of the Neponset band of the Indigenous Massachusett peoples. He actively creates historic and mythic inspired surrealist collage. He is an avid wand maker and is known for his several October seasons offering tarot interpretation in Naumkeag (now Salem).
I am the oldest of three, and all of my family have since moved very far away from Chicopee, MA. Nonetheless, and perhaps because of the long term exposure of those bucolic Pioneer Valley brownfields, all forms of camp to this day are an utter delight.
I am active in the Reclaiming Tradition and the Nor’East Web community. Castlevania and gardening are authentic passions. My partner Greg and I love our cat-friend whom we call Stella, though we would like very much to know how it is that they call themselves. My preferred scholarly readings include: Pyramid Collection, Design Toscano, derelict auction catalogues, Time-Life’s Mysteries of the Unknown series, and the works of Patti Smith, Carl Sagan, John Waters, Helen Molesworth, and Joseph Campbell.
