Dancing Devil Dermagraphics, LLC, is a unique combination of a tattoo studio and art gallery located on Gratiot Blvd in Marysville. The front half of their business is full of artwork and handmade gifts created by local artists, and to extend their love of artwork of all forms and their outreach to the artistic community, they’re holding the Dancing Devil Comic Con Saturday, July 19th. From 1pm – 9pm owners Matt and Ann Littke welcome the public to come meet creators of books, comics, trading cards, and video games. The creators will have merchandise for sale and will be discussing the creative process with customers throughout the day. This event has no admission charge and welcomes children and adults of all ages.
To put together this event, Dancing Devil Dermagraphics teamed up with local indie publishing company Source Point Press. Art Director Joshua Werner has been in charge of organizing the guests. “Dancing Devil is a one-of-a-kind tattoo shop. They’ve always supported the local artistic community, and they’ve held several successful events in the past. I’m excited to be a part of this, and to get more people inside this amazing shop and for them to meet Matt Littke and see how friendly and incredibly talented he is. We’ve put together an awesome lineup of guests too, this is sure to be a great time!” says Werner.
