GRL. Honestly you guy's are amazing and I have been following you ever since you first got boingboinged. This is a really neat effect and might be just the right way to make our shopping cart at modati. Man, that's a neat idea, especially if the design is a wrap around. I might have to try this out! Anyway, props. That's all. Good luck! -Love Bilal

And a question...is GRL going to Medellin, Colombia in March for the Medelink festival? I would like to see you all there, I'm hosting a workshop with local graff artists and it would be fun to have some input from the GRL team itself!

Yea we would def consider going to Medellin, if Medelink invites us. Hit us up at megaohmresistor@hotmail.com with any info and tell the festival organizers they need to invite the GRL! Thanks you so much for voting! ciao.
