Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 17, 2007
October 5th - 7th, 2007, the first of hopefully many annual Baby Tattooville artist schmoozefests went down in Riverside, California at the ridiculously opulent Mission Inn. The 48-hour event paired collectors, press, and art biz folks with 12 top pop artists for demonstrations, social activities, film, food, and field trips. Present on the artist side: Tim Biskup, Gary Baseman, Tara McPherson, Frank Kozik, Luke Chueh, Amanda Vissell, James Jean, Gris Grimly, Jeff Soto, Lola, Ragnar, and Jeffery Scott (1019). Juxtapoz.com web editor Ert O'Hara and Juxtapoz.com news contributor Brad Martin decided at the last minute to pack their bags and take a little road trip to participate. Ert brought back loads of photos and little anecdotes so you can vicariously enjoy her awkward social moments yet avoid the hangover.
