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.
