About a week ago, I was hired to do a campaign poster–my first. The colors inset into the California image are those of Uganda. While the office is nothing but a blip on the global political scale, except for a background color swap I was happy to nail the design on the first try. Good luck to the candidate!

New (year’s) business. If you’re in LA for 2018 NYE, join LA JUNTA crew for a special edition of PIÑA!! Not only will we be rockin’ the main room dance floor with our signature Afro-Latin tropical fire, but yours truly and a good friend TBA will be coolin’ out in the back room called The Stowaway with some deep and heavy jazz, hip-hop, and eclectic soul sounds.

We’re offering a VERY limited amount of $5 presale tickets via this Eventbrite link: http://bit.ly/2B0ajyT

Grateful to be back mixin’ at GENERAL LEE’S COCKTAIL HOUSE in the heart of LA’s Chinatown district this Friday November 17! It’s a great spot to both chill after a grueling work week or to jumpstart a fun weekend. The mixologists put together a great list of featured cocktails and its central location between dowtown and the eastside make it a perfect location to meet friends and recount your highs and lows for the week. I might even getcha to boogie a bit 😉 See ya on Friday!

Rocked my first poster/flier for an out of town event! Love the illustration of the deejays and host by DEAL. Thanks to Daveed L. for trusting me to work on this quickly. The second flier is for LA JUNTA’s monthly late night session called PIÑA, held at DTLA’s El Dorado Bar. We’re there every 2nd Friday, but last night’s event was a special one celebrating LOCATORA RADIO’s first year of podcasthood. Thanks to our friends Diosa Femme and Mala Muñoz, and guest deejay SIZZLE FANTASTIC, we had our first line out the door after six previous events. We’re growin’!
