From what I can gather from looking at the Phase 2 Finalist gallery at the New Era Introducing website, I believe I have made it as a Phase 2 Finalist! That means my custom New Era cap will be included in a traveling gallery exhibition and published in a limited edition New Era Introducing book.
I really thought I was done customizing vinyl art toys but it appears I spoke too soon. I was offered a chance to participate in the Zukie vs. the World custom group show at the Toy Tokyo Underground Gallery from July 27-29, 2012.
