I love cartoons, although I lean towards Warner Brothers and most older cartoons of that type. I also love art… okay, art that I can understand. I may not understand Picasso all that much but I had a feeling that I would easily understand the latest art show that was titled “Tooned In” that was exhibited at the Tymeless Tattoo Parlor in Baldwinsville this past Saturday night.

It was directed, if I can use that word, by my buddy Isaac Bidwell, who I interviewed at the link that’s attached to his name. This is actually the second art show he’s led that I’ve gone to in the same location, as there was another one held around Halloween that also had a lot of great pieces, some admittedly scary but still very fascinating; I can’t believe I didn’t write about that one.

I have to admit that my first visit to Tymeless was my first time in a tattoo parlor, and it wasn’t what I was expecting. Sometimes we watch too much TV, thus I expected a very dark place that smelled of ink. No sir, this is a wide open space with an inside koi pond and a large fish tank that separates the office area from the area where the tattoos take place, which is a large space that reminded me more of a hair salon than anything else, only no one was working on hair. The lobby area, however, ends up being a great place for displaying art works, and some of them were also for sale, both originals and then prints of many of the pieces, although a couple of the acrylic pieces, like the Bugs Bunny piece I’m going to highlight, had to be originals only.

Below you’ll see some of the other pieces for which I took pictures of so you can see the types of work there was. I tell you, there are some very talented people in central New York, and I’m glad I got to be a part of it in my own way. I just wish I was a better photographer. Be sure to click on the images to see them as they were actually taken, as I had to show them this way for formatting purposes.
