The early fall brought a spectacular event called Baby Tattooville. It’s organized annually by the publisher of Baby Tattoo books, Bob Self. One weekend and a countless assortment of top talent from the local art scene. This year brought a congregation of James Gurney, Michael Hussar, Audrey Kawasaki, Travis Louie, Molly Crabapple, Elizabeth McGrath, Miss Mindy, Johnny “KMNDZ” Rodriguez, KRK Ryden, Tara McPherson, Gris Grimly, Tim Biskup, Gary Baseman, Yoskay Yamamoto , Nate Frizzell, Luke Chueh, Jeff Soto, Lithium Picnic, and many more.

A number of these artists participated in the Art Jam (a 4 x 5 foot canvas, brushes, acrylics, and 24 hours of to collaboratively cover it in their signature styles) this year for the first time this process was captured by the cameras of Sketch Theatre, and you can see the results here!
