“Ever since I first saw his collection of Jetsonesque designs, I immediately felt that we would be a great match. Then when I saw what he did with the Keith Haring I thought, wow this is the best thing that I’ve seen since Keith was alive and doing it himself. Naturally, I jumped at this chance! Jeremy is the first person that I ever let take my art and do whatever he wants. I wasn’t nervous about it not being the greatest most fun thing and I wasn’t let down for one second – thank you Jeremy!”
