Baby Tattooville

I can't believe that Baby Tattooville is here. I remember when Bob began working on putting this together. I thought he was crazy then. I still think he's crazy, but I'm really looking forward to this weekend. It's going to be a blast. I really need a couple of days away from the studio and this is a great antidote to the ginormous monstrosity that Comic Con has become. Hanging out with old friends and the chance to meet some amazing artists for the first time is going to be invigorating. I hear there are some spaces left so if your looking for something to do....

Coming Soon

Here are a few events coming up that I'm looking forward to.
I'm having a solo show at Van Eaton Galleries which opens May 19th. There will be several new paintings and drawings and maybe a few prints as well. The work is somewhere between the Kings Of The Road and Vernaculis. Much less figurative than I usually do. But, I'm really enjoying the work.

Much later in the year, October 5th-7th I'll be attending Baby Tattooville at the Mission Inn. This inaugural event is shaping up to be very interesting. And if anyone can make it a weekend to remember it's Bob “Baby Tattoo” Self.


Speaking of which- I'll be signing at the Baby Tattoo booth during the LA Times Festival Of Books at various times during the weekend. I'll post times when I have them.

If your looking to kill some time you may want to visit the new Little Cartoons site. There's also a new site for art sales that you can access from the new site or here.

But for the really good stuff you should visit Coop's blog for some awesome pictures of his growing vintage lure collection. He's got a long way to go before he catches up with Mr Lure Box, but he's off to a good start and funny and erudite as ever. I started making my own lures about a year ago and hope to have some fishable versions soon. I think I'll start documenting the process when I get back to it after I finish these paintings.

Criss Cross-Post

I've set up a few other blogs to help organize some of the content here, I'll be moving some stuff around in the next few weeks. And yes the other blogs will soon suffer the same fate as this one. Neglect and disinterest. So hurry before the inevitable befalls the... oh crap it's happening already. Here's a bit of what awaits on the Big City Blog.

KINGS OF THE ROAD


A Bitter Pill


There were a few straglers left behind when I had to wrap up the pieces for the Phantomime series and show I did in 05. Some of the images just wouldn't or shouldn't come together. Others just need a bit of coaxing. This was one of the latter. It takes as long as it takes. Released Halloween 06.
