‘Brandi Milne’s Easter Egg Hunt’ details:

Each egg will contain a special ticket, good for one of many prizes to be redeemed that evening, including the grand prize, a framed one-of-a-kind original drawing from Brandi herself (shown below). Other prizes will include copies of Brandi’s latest book with Baby Tattoo “So Good For Little Bunnies”, copies of her new Gelaskins, and much more.
One of the 10 artists proofs will also be hand-touched by Brandi and on view as part of the ‘Run Rabbit, Run’ exhibit and will be available for purchase come the opening reception, but this is the only print out of the entire editon of 110 copies that will be available for purchase in any fashion.
This past Saturday night we headed out to Riverside to take in the opening for the Beyond Baby Tattooville exhibition taking place during Baby Tattooville weekend at the historic Mission Inn. Before we got to Riverside, we made the treck down to Laguna to take in In The Land Of Retinal Delights one more time. Sadly, no photos were allowed, despite being one of the galleries helping to present the event. Regardless, was a pleasure to view without a packed house and the accomapnying exhibition catalog of the event will be ready by early November the bookstore informed us and provide us all with several photos of the exhibition and works within.
Upon arriving at the Riverside Art Museum
we were greeted by the one and only Shag
(see his epic new work below – one part of a gigantic tripdych that graced the back wall of the exhibition hall
) who provided the week’s limited editon name bages for all Baby Tattooville
attendees and Mark Murphy
of Murphy Design who created a really nice lil’ booklet for all those that attended the getaway…
of LA Ink
was on hand for the opening, seen chating above with Billy Shire
thrilled fans of the getaway weekend with very nice lil’ drawings created on antique matchbooks. Her two new works which were featured on a lil’ set of walls in the middle of the exhibit (see pic below
) were snapped up quickly by attendees of Baby Tattooville
and this weekend really helped broaden her appeal with collectors in a big way. Brandi is pictured above with my wife Shawn. Looking super forward to Brandi’s upcoming solo with us this spring…
International man of mystery Tim Biskup
exhibited an amazing piece somewhat reminiscent of the works on view at his current European solo show (see above
). Speaking of Mr. Biskup, word was things got a lil’ outta hand on Friday night during the Baby Tattooville
getaway and… well, see the man below on crutches showing us love (flanked by Amanda Visell

And by far the show stopper (for us
) was the below piece from Michael Whelen
(click on for high res image – this has to be seen blown up to really appreciate it fully
). A name many attending the weekend were not very familiar with, but I’ve a feeling many now have him on their must have list.
