Interview With Jim “Food One” Mahfood For Taco Madness

Food1

TACO hit up the indomitable Food One to engage in a little verbal intercourse about life, love and tacos. Check out the interview and see Jim Mahfood this Saturday at Taco Madness.

Tell us more about what you've been up to in 2014 and what's upcoming. Rockin' a bunch of new t-shirt designs for Nike for their new B-Ball streetwear line, doing all the art on the new Miami Vice comic book (written by Joe Casey), contributing art to the new 21st Century Tank Girl project, hustlin' the hand-made Pop-Up Funk pop-up Book, and shopping around the animated show that I did for MTV with my pals Scott Mosier & Joe Casey. It's called D.I.S.C.O. Destroyer (Liquid Television | Sneak Peek of Disco Destroyer from Episode 1). Updates on my work always at http://jimmahfood.com and Instagram is @jimmahfood.

You've chosen Access Books as your non profit-- why them? Anything to get people to read, anything to make books more available to young people (or anyone else for that matter) is all golden with me!
