It began as a request to generate “title treatments” for a yet-to-be-green-lighted project, when Mark reconnected with a long-time friend from New York — the Executive Producer of Red Hot + Free. Fast forward several months, many hurdles were cleared to produce this music (album) compilation for/by the Red Hot Organization, a not-for-profit dedicated to fighting AIDS through pop culture. Released July 2, 2021, Mark provided art direction and design for the digital booklet accompanying the MP3-version of the album, which features two paintings by artist Clarence James. Plans for CD and vinyl editions are in the works. Stay tuned.
