Team:

Etan aka sticker dood (myself): I am planning, organizing, and hosting Inkubator Fright Night. I run a sticker business called “Jpeg kings”, I have been to numerous Doodles events, and I am excited to do a little doodles community spooky szn in Tribeca. I will also manage payment of vendors for catering, photo booth rental, artwork, and the tour. Working with countless community members as sticker clients and for collabs for IRL events I am familiar with numerous artists to get the artwork and designs done in a timely manner. I have made custom tote bags for the JKB NFT NYC Electro Heaven party so I am more than capable of getting some made for this event.

I personally will make my rounds around the city throwing stickers and making hype content in anticipation of the event

We will post reminders and countdowns to the event.

We are expecting folks to post pictures with their halloween themed tote bags with their friends and we plan to work with Kat to come up with a unitary hashtag to route all of the event photos with ease.

I will document the event and make posts on my page @etanboss as well to provide guaranteed content creation. We will also have a photographer on-site who’s photos I will be sharing to do a recap thread of the event with!

Project Lead Additional Remarks

Regarding signs ups I plan to work with Kat and Mushy to coordinate tokenproof for headcount and tokengating. At this moment without a tokenproof sign up available yet, the total number of attendees is still up in the air. We are projecting between 25 and 50 OG Doodles holders and can hold a max of 75. Final determinations for catering and tour admissions will be made once the Tokenproof sign up window closes. Any additional funding that spills over and is not used will be returned to the Inkubator
