Take a look at some of my very favorite $25 album covers I’ve created recently for some of my Fiverr customers! I just love everything about all 4 of these. And, I’ve just really enjoyed creating all of them, as well.
If you haven’t gotten the down low yet on my new career as an album artwork artist - well! Let me tell you all about it! I offer album artwork in my style with a price range ranging from $5 - $50 depending on whether you want one of my custom parental advisory logos (pictured below), the artwork to be in color, or accompanying back cover art!
SO if you or any of your friends need an album cover for their new single, album, or podcast channel, be sure to refer to my Fiverr album cover gig HERE!

One of my favorite new animes I’ve been watching is Psycho-Pass. I just love the artistic style and concept of criminals being used by the government to catch other criminals. It’s actually pretty political for my typical tastes, but I love it! You can check out a trailer of this futuristic, crime drama above. You can also watch the entire first season on Netflix live streaming.
Have you seen Psycho-Pass? If so, what did you think?

Check out this AMAZE Paul Frank change purse I won at an auction the other day! I’m SOOOOO into the mad Gucci vibes! I absolutely loved the Italian Julius monogram print when it was first released in 2003 and snagged a few pieces, so it’s super nice to ad some new pieces to my collection over 10 years later! Definitely my favorite Paul Frank collection to date.

Check out this brand of beautiful, rustic shoes I recently discovered. Umberto Luce is a brand of luxury mens footwear that’s been around since the ’90s. Each pair is handmade with certified, eco-friendly leathers. They are also made on demand upon order by Mexican craftsmen, so they will fit you perfectly. It brings a whole new meaning to the phrase, “Those shoes were made for you!”
Check out a few of my favorite pairs. I have to say - the Yak Rusty Boots, pictured above, are my very favorite!
You can see the entire collection at UmbertoLuce.com.

I’ve been working a lot with pulp art for some of the album covers I’ve been designing recently and in the process, I’ve run across a lot of amazing pulp are covers from the 1930s to 1950s. Below, you can check out a small collection of my favorite covers. My VERY favorites so far would probably be Satan Was A Lesbian and Marijuana Girl. I just love the subtext on the latter.
So what do you think? Super fun or super cheesy? Let me know your thoughts on the pulp art genre in the comments below!

What 3 words would you use to describe your sound?

Where are you currently based out of?
Washington, DC & Miami Beach, Florida
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever experienced playing a live show?
I played a show once in Miami where I was opening for two very well known rappers and during the show the two rappers fans got into a fight, which lead to gunshots. The promoter asked me to go on stage and keep the show’s energy going and I did. Later, I thought about the situation and realized how unsafe it was!
If you could go on a dream world tour with any 3 artists, who would you take with you?
I would take my producer GUGG, Ricky Martin, and Jennifer Lopez. Myself, Ricky and Jennifer all have music that would blend together, intertwine and I think it would be a great show! With our energy it would be absolutely incredible!
Any big projects in the works this year?
Currently, we are back in the studio and have just released two new singles on iTunes - “Do Something About It” and “Crush”. I am looking forward to putting together another awesome album with lots of unexpected new ideas way out of the box. This is going to be a big year with lots of exciting new music from Boom Boom and G.U.G.G. Buckle up it’s gonna be a bumpy ride! Hurricane Boom Boom is on it’s way!
