Designer Con wrap up...

This years -Fresh new Designer-Con in Pasadena was awesome!

I look forward to participating more next year. Perhaps live paintings... hmmm.

This time it was fun wearing Mr. comfy Beanie, signing some books, and peeking around at booths... in the process, a cool art project approached the Baby Tattoo Books booth from a chap named Linh. Wish I had this Idea! He got some great drawings from Dave Pressler, Greg Simkins, Ragnar, Christopher Lee and many more... hmmm I gotta get better at asking people to sign my sketchbook, so far I've got a Brandi Milne/Bob Dob combo, and a Tim Biskup! not too shabby eh? oh my- I must attack more artists.
Dave Pressler .YES!
Greg Simkins
Chris Lee --- and look! there's the cutie Kristine---

BabyTattooville painting el Prize-o!

So-- Remember all that wooden Nickel Jabber that I was carrying on about in October? Welp, those were made as tokens to win this piece of art at Baby Tattooville! Miss Katie Crabb won the lil' Darlin'- and picked 'er up at my home studio-- I'm so glad my new painting has a good home.
I wanted to give it a lil' something special for the winner -- I bet she's tired of the whole "Crabb" thing but hell, my brain wanted a lil' crabby at the top.... arn't we all a little crabby at the top? - or bottom? uh-nevermind. Have a good weekend!
