One of the artists on my press bucket list, I’ve wanted to write up a feature on John Felix Arnold III since I met him at a café show in Bernal Heights three years ago. At that time, I was actively publicizing the works of artists showing at the now deceased Babylon Falling bookstore, which included David Young V, Robert Bowen, David Ball, and C3. Unfortunately, I never quite got the chance to cover Felix at the bookstore, because I only became aware of his work directly after his show had ended. With Old Crow Tattoo in Oakland, California actively showing Felix’s work, thankfully, I’ve gotten another chance to chat with him about what inspires his expansive, post-apocalyptic installations. I stopped by his show "Should I Stay or Should I Go?" to get the shots and make up for lost time.

BABY TATTOOVILLE 2009
@ The Mission Inn, Riverside, California
Epic in history and architectural splendor as William Hearst’s Castle, the Mission Inn Hotel & Spa boasts the likes of Harry Houdini, Cary Grant and ten American presidents among its famous guests. A palatial pleasure ground spanning 320,000 square feet and filled with a museum of exotic decoration from far off lands, this vastly haunted location is a veritable city in a hotel and the fitting residence for Baby Tattooville, a strange and unique annual art event of micro and mammoth proportions.
On a warm Californian October weekend, somewhere amidst the endless labyrinthine walls of grandeur, a bunch of renegade beatniks, chic bohemians, tattooed villains and fringe dwellers gathered, partied and lived art. With some of the finest creatives on the planet as headline guests, a mere 45 tickets holders consisting of collectors, aficionados and master printers helped to create an intimate but way-out happening, with master class art sessions and around-the-clock painting in every corner and all fueled by a two-day collaborative art jam.
The pre-announced line-up of rogue minds was – take a breath – fantasy illustrator James Gurney, ethereal painter Audrey Kawasaki, monster kid Travis Louie, dark taxidermist Elizabeth McGrath, Technicolor woodcutter Miss Mindy, boob and pink-loving Buff Monster, robot obsessive Johnny KMNDZ Rodriguez, pop culture masher KRK Ryden, creature surrealist Greg “Craola” Simkins, Lithium Picnic’s Philip Warner and Japanese mythmaker Yoskay Yamamoto. Surprise guests included Gary Baseman, Michael Hussar, Jeffrey Scott, Gris Grimly and Tara McPherson, all getting mucky with paint, ink or camera.
No surprise that on the Friday evening it was a veritable celebrity edition of Dr. Sketchy’s held at the Riverside Art Museum with Molly Crabapple, creator of the art phenomena herself as emcee. Mosh, Bizarre’s recent cover girl made for a stunning life model, sporting a snazzy latex nurse outfit complete with catheter. The museum also held its opening night of the Son of Babytattooville gallery exhibit, showcasing all the guest artists and works from previous events with impromptu sketching flowing like the wine from the open bar.
Saturday night blended innovative fiction, hotel history and the work of the featured artists, to form the basis of an immersive alternate reality game, designed by 42 Entertainment. It found the entire ensemble head for the hotel’s spooky underground catacombs and running amok throughout the entire Mission Inn, much to the surprise of the mainstream guests, obviously in need of a little art revolution.
Bob Self, Bizarre’s Dark Art’s columnist and creator of publishing house Baby Tattoo Book is the enigmatic, mad-magician behind the Baby Tattooville curtain. ‘It’s like a secret society for artists and art fans,’ he hinted. ‘It’s not a secret society in the sense that nobody knows we exist. They know we get together, they hear that it’s fun, but they don’t necessarily know what it is that goes on. What drives it, a mission statement if you will, is this; why couldn’t people that love art, whether they create it or consume it, get together and just have a weekend that was all about what makes the art-centric lifestyle great?’

Some pics of how was the exhibit, big thanks to Tandy Machado and Felipe Navarro for making this dream come true.
Three random tattoo ideas
I got this woodcut as a tattoo first for the aesthetics of it--I love how woodcuts translate into tattoos--and then because of the way I'm drawn to death and mortality as portrayed in art, especially memento mori works and art that captures how different people's attitudes towards death that are . That said, those heavier themes are definitely lightened by the cool little guy riding the devil's tail! Tattoo by: Eric Doyle, Jinx Proof, Washington, D.C. www.jinxprooftattoos.com/
