All I Want cd
posted:

 A couple of years ago I was asked by Mathew Dunteman at Nick Jr if I would be interested in working on a series of animations for songs by David Weinstone of Music for Aardvarks fame. I leapt at the chance. My daughters were among the first to take his Music for Aardvarks classes back when they were little little. Little little is a term parents understand.
 In 2010, David asked if I'd create the art for a cd of his latest group of songs. It took forever to get David to tell me exactly what he was looking for. David's music is for children but with an urban edge. I decided I'd make the art to match. The result is a Ramones influenced kids garage band. In fact, I rewatched my copy of the Ramones documentary End of the Century to put myself in a suitable frame of mind. The design is by Jesse Reyes whom I've worked with many times over the years. I knew he understood the DIY aesthetic but also how to tame it for the pre-school set and their parents.
The official cd release date is today March 8, 2011. Captain Beefheart said, "If you got ears you got to listen." Today I'll amend that to "If you got kids you got to listen." ALL I WANT can be ordered here.

 The guitars are based on David Weinstone's own. The strings were added in photoshop.
Here are few of the videos that originally brought us together and are currently airing on NickJr.
