Ciao a tutti! Yes I'm hurrrr. Well let's get started on what has been going on and upcoming things from me. A bigger post, yes but I like do whatever.
Thank you to Nicole from Latino Post for writing a feature on me and my work! I feel like I came somewhat out of the closet with this one because I'm finally comfortable revealing my age.
Speaking of the album, due to who knows what I did not design nor did I put together the EP vinyl which accompanies this release which I put together but I'm happy that my project has an accompanying vinyl to go along with it because I love this proj so much! It will be coming out in february and below are pics of it.
Also I designed the new Trax t-shirts with technical help from Boyfriend <3 I'm so happy these are finally out because I was so sick of having shirt with like 5 different logo designs. Finally one uniform shirt, which is also now fully being distributed professionally and being sold around the world [via Sean Kingston]
Also Alina from Belarusian magazine 34mag.net interviewed me and about my work. You'll have to google translate this one tho. Super beautiful layout on this one btw! And super proud of what I said in the interview here is something I said, "In high school teacher Mexican told us, referring to all the "brown" children: "If you're different, you need to try twice as hard to be the best. Because from the very beginning you are not perceived as equal. " Can you imagine? So educated generations of Hispanic children in the U.S. - with a sense of worthlessness. Most of your life and values do not mean anything, you need to work hard to be respected more." -- this of course is the google translation and I even brought up Tyra Banks but the idea is there and I do not remember verbatim what I said, lol
and then in case you didn't know I am learning Italian and I started posting videos on youtube on my progress and stuff.
and finally a huge announcement regarding my website! I will be removing the existing website and creating a brand new one with a much different design aspect as before. I can not believe it has been four years already! and whoah has it gone through a bunch of changes. The address will still be the same (monamiejorge.com) but you can view the website as is until the 24th of January. After a new era will begiiiiin.
Below is one of the older main menus that I had. lol
things for 2014: my book, more monamiejorge†apes, and who knows!

"I think Jorge sees everything. He responds in excellent, funny, questioning ways. He is a fearless artist. I appreciate his insightfulness. It's all pretty transformative. He is a very sweet person too. Works really hard and can do so many good things! It's sort of mystifying."
