A great woman: Estelle Bellomo, Tish & Snooky's mom

NYC Thursday February 21: The acclaimed School of Visual Arts held its annual awards ceremony for the ESTELLE BELLOMO AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN ART THERAPY. Tish & Snooky pose with Suzanne Deisher, the 2013 award recipient. This award was established in 1994 in memory of Estelle Bellomo, founder of the Art Therapy Department at SVA. 

Our beloved Estelle Bellomo, mother of Tish & Snooky and great artist, was the creative genius who named "MANIC PANIC." We are grateful to Estelle for raising two daughters in an artistic environment which supported their ingenuity and encouraged them to live their dreams.

It doesn't get any more New York than this!

Meet the new Manic Panic NYC® skully! She has been crowned with liberty spikes to honor the city that made her and the town she loves so much. Her image can be seen on background wallpaper on the Manic Panic® website. Soon you will see her on the new packaging of Manic Panic® Glamnation™ Cosmetics and more.
Tish & Snooky created her to symbolize the freedom they grew up with being born and bred in New York City. They expressed their creativity at a young age, singing in rock bands (like the first Blondie lineup) and opening up the original Manic Panic shop which was America's first punk boutique. The dream of having a business sharing the things they love with the world came true for the sisters. Remaining true to their rock'n' roll roots has always been a part of that vision.
Tonight the segment of New York Originals featuring Tish & Snooky and the story Manic Panic® aired on television for the second time.
 The book of the same title continues to receive praises.

This past Friday, the girls joined Village Voice writer Michael Musto for his "sold-out Disco Extravaganza" 54 BELOW. This venue is actually located in the very same building as the famous Studio 54.
As Cindy Adams would say, "only in New York, folks, only in New York".
