I'm excited to be going to Baby Tattooville this year (as a member of the press) and hang out with a lot of my favorite artists. If you want to attend, hurry and sign up, as only nine slots remain.
Baby Tattooville is an unlike-anything-you've-ever-heard-of-before art extravaganza. It's like a high-roller's cross between a lively art fair, a down-to-earth studio visit with famous artists, and a 'round-the-clock private party... with lots of jaw-dropping gifts for the lucky few who are adventurous enough to attend.Spend the Weekend with Your Favorite Artists and Get Lots of Exclusive Stuff
The event takes place early next month (October 2-4, 2009) at the spectacular Mission Inn Hotel and Spa in Riverside, California. This year's artist lineup includes James Gurney, Michael Hussar, Audrey Kawasaki, Travis Louie, Elizabeth McGrath, Miss Mindy, Johnny KMNDZ Rodriguez, KRK Ryden, Greg "Craola" Simkins, Yoskay Yamamoto and a number of surprise guests (big surprise guests).
In order to insure that attendees are able to interact directly with their favorite artists, a total of only 45 tickets are offered for sale. As mentioned above, only 9 tickets remain available as of today.
The retail price is $2500 for an individual ticket, or $3000 for a two-person ticket (the two people must occupy the same hotel room and will receive one gift bag between them). The retail price includes 2 nights hotel accommodations, several meals (including a spectacular Sunday Brunch), access to a weekend's worth of social and creative interaction with all of the attending artists, and an unbelievable assortment of original art, limited edition prints and collectible merchandise. Go to babytattooville.com to learn more and register.
In addition to everything mentioned above, you will find yourself with an unparalleled networking opportunity since you will be spending a fun and stimulating weekend with top artists, other industry professionals and media insiders.
