When PRINCE Tweets

"TASTES GOOD 2!"

I absolutely adore PRINCE'S humor! I'll never forget that day that my friends were texting me and calling me to tell me PRINCE retweeted my "Animal Muppet" photo I took and posted for his new album "HITNRUN PHASE 2"! 

He added the spunky and hilarious remark "tastes good 2"! smile emoticon :)

New York City on 99.5 FM WBAI

I was live on the air in New York City on 99.5 FM WBAI  with long time PRINCE NPG DJ and collaborator Brother Jules for an interview discussing "The REMIX/LOVE EXPERIENCE" project that Jules and PRINCE were working on. I was asked to create the cover art and design the entire cd art and package which has now been famously circulating on social media and the net since summer of 2016 and has become a  much loved piece of art. I am so greateful and humbled for the support.
