So much happening I am having trouble keeping up! This past weekend was C2E2 here in Chicago. We at OhNo!Doom had a rad booth, selling our wares. Will be posting some more of my Atomic mint cones, our new golden Idol button packs (i have a squid pin in there), our new tote (my drawn logo appears on the front) and various other goods online soon. I will post a link when that goes down. New show is going up in our gallery space April 2nd (Beast Friends: Keith Noordzy & Kali Meadows). Busy Busy...
What else is new? Lots...
Oh! Before I forget... I have a new twitter account! @lanacrooks is the place to be for random short sentences about releases, art events, what i am eating and where I am going. ;)
I also have a new Facebook page! Hope you like it and maybe tell other people that may also like things of this sort: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Lana-plushinator-Crooks/110378259033423
