I know you have already seen this but these are my pics from Freeek and myself's first collab in Door county. The whole thing was brought together by our hommies Nick and Mary who own the Get Away Car art gallery. If your ever in Door county look em up for some of the sickest glass art around!! The pics in the Gallery feature assorted works from different artists and are not mine but are all ill!!
