Rice Boy, the Comic and the Album

Is there a connection between the comic/graphic novel Rice Boy by Evan Dahm and the album Riceboy Sleeps by Jónsi and Alex?

from the press release link on wikipedia:

"now, however, the full-length ‘riceboy sleeps’ album (the name having migrated from artist moniker to album title)"

And from somewhere else that I couldn't source:

"Jón (aka Jónsi) and partner Alex Somers have exhibited artwork under the Riceboy Sleeps moniker for a few years"

So it seems like a coincidence?

If you ask him he'll probably say yes or no. I'd do it via twitter - @evndahm.

I've never seen him say anything about it, but then again he never really says much about Where His Comics Come From.

IIRC, the email sent to subscribers when the album was announced said that "Riceboy" was Jonsi's nickname for Alex. Apparently Alex likes rice.
