The Cartoon Heart
recorded 2002-03

engineered and mixed
by Aj and Laura Hanna

The Cartoon Heart came right before I left for California. It was kind of a farewell album for New York. You'll see this design repeated in a lot of my other artwork, and it's become somewhat of a personal trademark over the years. I really like the idea that this symbol could be the empty heart or the open heart, a nice way to choose your frame of mind for the day. Plus it reminds me of the Legend of Zelda heart icon. I recorded this album with the help of Laura Hanna who contributed some really cool sounds to the tracks.
