Beat Puppets .:Feb 25 09:.
So I had this idea to start B-boying again to lose weight, so Romali
and I went to 24 hr. fitness the other day. I lasted about 20
minutes. I better pick it up though, cause I weighed in at like 195
lbs! OMG! At least I can still do some windmills.

When I moved up to Union City a little more than a year ago, and it came time for me to find an internship for my graphic design program at Chabot College, I found a local studio in Newark, of all places, on Yelp. It was called FlavorInnovator (www.flavorinnovator.com). I emailed the studio, sent my portfolio, and maybe a few weeks later, Steve Ha had me working on a di-cut sticker for one of his clients. What was a weird coincidence is that I had seen this record at Amoeba by a cat name "E Da Boss" a couple weeks before that, that had caught my eye on the cover alone. Turned out he designed it. Romali was going to buy the same record coincidentally on the design alone. He's actually designed a few covers of records I had bought in the past.
I put in a lot of work at FlavorInnovator, in exchange he had taught me how to use Photoshop, and is always there to give me some guidance and constructive criticsm for my work. Fast forward to the present, about over 100 beers, 3 bottles of Jack Daniels, 5 packs of cigarettes, 1 run-in with a security gaurd, a few toy freestyle sessions, and a couple Jo_iLL tags on some random trash cans, we have become good friends, and he a mentor to me.

Vimby (www.vimby.com) had just did a feature on him, and I'm proud to see him getting some shine. Here's to good luck on the design tip in the '09.
