Time flies…  This year’s Baby Tattooville (see our 2009 and 2010 coverage) is creeping up on us and will go down the weekend of October 7-9.

Baby Tattooville ’10 – Art Jam

Baby Tattooville’s Art Jam is the artist activity that has received the most attention at each BT weekend. This is not without great reason as this annual fixture involves every individual artist at BT. During Art Jam, all of the featured and returning artists are welcomed to join together in creating a once-in-a-lifetime collaborative piece. This historic painting is started on opening day and is jointly worked on until the following night. BT guests are free to witness every moment of the piece’s completion. A […]

Baby Tattooville ’10: Gift Bag and Goodies

One of the biggest barriers confronting many who consider attending Baby Tattooville is the cost. Although it may seem a little pricey, what you receive in return more than makes up for it. Beyond the experience of spending a weekend elbow-to-elbow with your favorite artists, staying in one of the best hotels in Southern California and being surrounded by like-minded friends, BT attendees get to take home a plethora of amazing stuff, including original art, prints, toys, books, stickers and magazines. More after the jump…

Baby Tattooville ’10 – Robert Williams Roast

Baby Tattooville 2010 featured a special tribute to Robert Williams. From helping pave the way for young artists to founding JUXTAPOZ magazine, Robert Williams has been an enormous influence on alternative art. That influence is immeasurable. Still, to get a better understanding of the artist who brought the term “low brow” into the fine arts lexicon, Baby Tattooville assembled a roast with a panel of some of the individuals closest to Mr. Williams. During the Roast, Williams was subjected to good-natured ridicule by friends Mat […]

Baby Tattooville ’10: “California Kustom” Museum Reception

As blissful and adventurous as the confines of the Mission Inn (where everything usually goes down) are, sometimes it is good to leave and take a field trip during Baby Tattooville. As has become tradition for the event, the Riverside Art Museum, in conjunction with BT, opened an exhibition featuring artists from the weekend-long extravaganza. The show—which unlike other BT events is open to the public—includes fantastic works by Robert and Suzanne Williams, Ron English, Coop, Michael Hussar, Anthony Ausgang, William Stout, Spain Rodriguez, Van […]

Baby Tattooville ’10 – “Late Night Madness” with Michael Hussar

Michael Hussar returned for Baby Tattooville 2010 and once again graciously hosted one of the key events of the special weekend. Each night, Hussar’s suite became the site for non-stop late night festivities. BT attendees joined in on sketching the models in one room, while artists such as Ron English, Johnny “KMNDZ” Rodriguez, Van Arno and Robert Williams could be seen participating in photoshoots with the models, sketching under Sketch Theatre and just flat out partying. Great art, beautiful models and partying until the morning… […]

Baby Tattooville ’10: Print Shop Presented by Diesel Fuel Prints

If you collect prints, you’re probably used to pressing a few buttons on your favorite artist’s website and having art show up at your door a few days later in a (hopefully uncrushed) tube.  But do you have any idea how your prints are made or how much effort was put into each piece?  Well, attendees of Baby Tattooville this year now do. At the Secret Society gathering, guests were treated to a special screenprinting demonstration by Andy from Diesel Fuel Prints and had the […]

Baby Tattooville ‘10 – Secret Art Sale

Baby Tattooville attendees get to bring home loads of goodies, including one-of-a-kind unique original works that they receive as part of their membership, but there is also the opportunity to purchase even more spectacular original art at the Art Sale.  This year’s selection included pieces by honoree Robert Williams, as well as featured artists such as Coop, Van Arno, Anthony Ausgang, and Suzanne Williams.  Also available were works by past artists, including James Jean, Jeff Soto, Tim Biskup, and Johnny “KMNDZ” Rodriguez.  The biggest surprise […]

Baby Tattooville ’10 – Midnight In the Catacombs

Mission Inn’s notorious catacombs, once an underground museum that led mainly to Mt. Rubidoux and the nearby Riverside Evergreen Cemetery, had long been entirely closed off to the public.  Baby Tattooville attendees were lucky enough to be the first group gained admission to these catacombs at Baby Tattooville 2009.  This year, members of Baby Tattooville 2010 were also given the chance to visit the catacombs.  Yet, this time the experience was a bit more relaxed, involving life sketching and complimentary ice cream.  The decor in […]

Baby Tattooville ’10 – Secret Store by Paris to the Moon

Baby Tattooville attendees more often than not are also collectors and lovers of art products. As such, one of their favorite BT activities is shopping at the Secret Store that pops up every yearly gathering. A plethora of goodies were available at the shop, ranging from this year’s featured artists to past ones. There was an Audrey Kawasaki original, a gigantic limited edition print by the man of honor, Robert Williams, customized figures, tons of books, and various other desireables. Those who paid for their […]
