Featuring over 500 works created by Baseman over three decades, the retrospective is the most comprehensive look into Baseman's career to date.

Last week we stopped by the opening of Gary Baseman’s first major museum exhibition “The Door Is Always Open” at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. The show is broken into rooms, all featuring different aspects of Baseman's life, career, and personal growth. Photos and more after the jump.

As we showed you earlier on the site today, Los Angeles-based Gary Baseman will be opening his first solo musuem survey this week at Skirball Cultural Center. In conjunction with the opening and our 10+ years of covering Gary's work in the magazine, we look back on a classic article we had in the Jan/Feb 2001issue, #30, where Cleatus Broadus (yep, things were silly in 2001) catches up the "Dumb Luck" of Baseman. Congrats Gary on the museum show....

Our friend Gary Baseman has a very special week ahead as he prepares to open The Door Is Always Open at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles on April 25. This will be the former Juxtapoz featured artist, illustrator, animator, and toy designer's first ever museum survey, long overdue in our book. The survey will also feature paintings, photographs, toys, sketchbooks, and videos, presented in a "novel gallery setting that evokes Baseman’s childhood home, replete with family snapshots and furnishings." Be there.

We recently attended the opening of Gary Baseman’s latest exhibition “Nightmares of Halloween's Past” at the newly opened KK Gallery in Los Angeles' historic Chinatown. We interviewed Gary last week about the opening, and we may have had a drink with him in LA this past Thursday. But we think you should just check the photos and more after the jump.

We recently stopped by LeBasse Projects for their newest exhibition, LA Mixtape. LA MiXTAPE documents the effect of music on the process of creation, asking each participating artist to create a piece titled after a song, artist, or band that has inspired or influenced his/her creative process.

From the publisher who publishes the Juxtapoz Book Series, Gingko Press, and the author who is one of Jux' longest running contributors, Caleb Neelon, comes the new book, Delusional: The Story of the Jonathan LeVine Gallery. Obviously, the book is about the story of NYC's Jonathan Levine Gallery and not costume design. That cover is so damn good. More after the jump . . .
