|Ron English, Eric Segall, Super Cooper Barella Art Collaboration|
I brought my 11-year old son, Eric who was worried that there would be no other kids there. However, as soon as we arrived, he made fast friends with "Super Cooper" Barella, a 12-year old veteran of Baby Tattooville who had just curated a gallery show at Munkey King in Los Angeles and was happy to introduce us around and show us the ropes.

|William Stout Sketch|
The guest artists spent most of the weekend working on an "art jam" painting together, designing individual circus punks, chatting, and drawing sketches for the attendees. Eric and I had a blast acting like silly little fanboys gathering sketches from all of the artists in our sketchbooks. By the end, I was just missing a drawing from Amy Sol, who was MIA for a bit - she had her own gallery opening to attend.

By brunch on Sunday, Eric and I had gathered all of our books we had signed while we were there, our purchases from the Baby Tattooville Secret Store, and our gift bags stuffed to the brim with goodies donated by the artists. We said our goodbyes to our friends old and new. I can't wait until next year!
