Mira understands that my Jonas Gerard Project pictures are intended to be nothing more than a lighthearted poke at her dad, while also being a bit of a homage and tribute to his success and popularity.

Here are the first three installments of my "Jonas Gerard Project:"
I Hueart Huevos
Too Heart to Handle
Red Velvet Heart
I encourage you guys to create and post your own Jonas Gerard Project pieces on my Facebook Page!
Yeah, Man! Do it!
