full details here! (thegremlinquarterly.com)
Meanwhile on this end I have been super busy animating segments for The Gremlin Hour, an anthology cult/punk animation/shortfilm anthology show. It’s gonna be rad… Don’t want to rush it…. Also released a new cassette with NIGHT AUDITOR, whom I recently animated that video, HIGHER for!. If you want to keep up to date w me I suggest following my personal or @TheGremlinQUarterly feeds on Instagram.
The music video for NIGHT-AUDITOR’s Higher is here! and above!
I love Indie-rock as probably anyone who’s had the privileged to get one of my mix-Cds (or even a Mix Recordddd, huhhhh Angel, huhhhh???)or disprivledged to live in the room next door to my studio (Hey, I asked that guy constantly if he wanted me to turn it down and he kept saying “no, it helps me to go to sleep” so if you heard otherwise, that’s the facts. I also would switch the music to evening allnighter jams when he got home)
I have never done a music-video that was Indie-Funk Rock though.The organic blends of guitar, horn, keys really gave me new life when choosing colors with this one, and I had so much fun with the Brazilian setting.
When I asked Night-Auditor if he had any favorite streets in Brazil I could draw he didn’t even skip a beat naming off like 5 of them. That’s why i had so much fun with this project. This dude gives a shit about what he’s doing, he’s passionate and sincere and I’m sure if he keeps hustling he will find a healthy audience.

Gremlin 2 has been getting positive responses… GOOD!!! Cause it’s a great issue!!!
I’m also glad cause the buzz convinced Echo Park Rising to allow us to curate a set for their grand festival!
