New groove!

Checkit-checkit-check it!

So yesterday I started a new internship at a great music magazine, Wax Poetics! Its a super in-depth mag', and sometimes too text heavy for me...I can't help it I read too many comics. So far they trusted me with laying out the weekly newsletter and today I scanned around 85 records from the Fania record catalog. Most were 1st pressings and some were even unopened! HO MY GOD! I thought to myself, I was the 1st person to ever touch these covers since they were pressed back in the 70s. Thats 30 f'n years ago!!! Today, they got in a shipment from the Fania warehouse in Miami and there were two cases packed in with it. My boss took one and I took the other. There was basically nothing inside but a receipt from 1974 for the processing of a film from the Latino music festival from Screen Gems/Columbia Pictures.

The history was swarming around me.

I got to meet DJ Amir. Plus 2 minute walk to a nice and sunny park between the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridge is monumental. The office definitely looks like it needs a mural on their walls - too much white space. I think I got something *hint, hint*

My new paid job is sign painting at Trader Joe's. Trader Joe's a decent place to shop...good food, but 80% expensive and high on the yuppie tip. I rocked the hell out of TJ's in Portland because I could take advantage of food stamps. So TJ's is an alright joint, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE to paint signs and the whole idea of playing with text all day is great...the amazing thing too it I don't use a computer to lay out the signs; all done by hand from beginning to end. Once I transfer over my photos, I'll post them. If I could get a good job painting signs for higher pay and closer in proximity I would drop TJ's in a heartbeat. I would love nothing more than to paint signs and do comics all day - heaven!

Just so I don't leave this post w/o some art

Mini-Battle Men, Episode 1: Enter: Nega Neutron

Mini-Battle Men Ep.1 from ZEES on Vimeo.

Mega Neutron and Supreen are from a race of small angry superheroes. Going almost unnoticed, they have found a home in New York City. Mega Neutron has had it with Supreen's messy living habits. After a alley cat shits on their cardboard box porch, Mega Neutron looses it. He takes his aggression out on the cat and rolls into the street. After they are plowed over by a truck, Mega Neutron's mean side splits off to create, Nega Neutron.
