GARY BASEMAN - La Noche de la Fusion
@ Corey Helford Gallery
May 2nd, 2009
This is what wikipedia says about Gary Baseman:
"Gary Baseman (born 1960) is an artist, particularly known as an illustrator and cartoonist, who lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Baseman received a degree, Phi Beta Kappa, from UCLA in 1982. He has since worked as a fine artist, commercial artist, editorial artist, and as a television and film art director and producer of animation.
His work is distinguished by big-eyed characters in slapstick situations and vivid use of colour. He has cited influences as varied as Warner Brothers cartoons, vintage American comic strips, Hieronymus Bosch, Day of the Dead artifacts, and Japanese pop art. Baseman's work is part of the permanent collections of the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. and the Museum of Modern Art in Rome. As an illustrator, his corporate clients include Gatorade, Mercedes-Benz, and Nike. He also created the art for the popular board game Cranium, as well as the cover and packaging art for the 2007 album The Crumbling Empire Of White People by Mr. Smolin.
Baseman is a creator and an executive producer of the animated television series for ABC/Disney called Teacher's Pet, which won the Emmy award for Best Daytime Animated series three times (two years consecutively), as well as a BAFTA for best International Children's Programming. Teacher’s Pet was adapted to a feature film released by Buena Vista/Walt Disney Pictures in 2004.
A prolific artist, his work has appeared on the pages of Esquire, Forbes, GQ, The New Yorker, Time, Reader's Digest and Rolling Stone magazines, as well as in The New York Times. Chronicle Books published a monograph of his work titled Dumb Luck: The Art of Gary Baseman, in 2004. Baseman is further renown as a creator of designer toys, most notably characters based on his fine art including Dunces, Hot Cha Cha Cha, Dumb Luck and Toby, all produced by American manufacturer Critterbox. He is a subject of the hand-made action figure portraits of visual artists, "The Art Army", by Michael Leavitt (artist). Baseman has also contributed designs for collectible toys including Dunny, Qee, and Trexi."

This is the tattoo I designed for myself. I found the photo of the heart online and found another photo with the butterflies. I used Adobe Photoshop to create the look I wanted.
Neither of the photos I used were copyrighted.

Day 1 Releases from Skinthesis @ The Fantasy Fare 2012 to benefit RFL!
I'm doing 5 whole days of new releases, and this is the first batch - lots of new Petite Mesh Avatars, special skins for Petites, and tattoo layer makeups for regular size avies - including tintable eyeshadow packs! Be sure to stop by and check out everything and fight cancer while you shop! We're located on The Tides sim sponsored by Alia Baroque of Fallen Gods, and here's the link to a map to help you find your way:
We're store 'C', so just head right from the landing point when facing Fallen Gods and we're right on the south end, you can't miss us ; )
Here's the SLURL to get you there!
If you can't make it to the faire on time, though, don't fret - all of the newness will be available at the main store after the event is over - but if you enjoy fantasy themes, I highly suggest taking time as this is the biggest event for our genre in SL of the entire year!

I Recently had the chance to do another fixie or fixed gear bike shoot, with a good friend whom I’ve been promising to shoot since well, what seems like forever, we had bad weather and things got shuffled around a little but these are the results…
Cheers to Eric and the guys at Gear Brisbane for hooking us up with yet again some amazing bikes, we didn’t get a scratch on em, I promise. But Eric is a great guy always keen to help out and work on some cool new interesting projects no matter what they involve be it a few bikes or well (I’ll say the rest once I’ve finished working on the projects). You should go into the store if you are close to the Brisbane CBD, or visiting from out of town, its an amazing store and I guarantee you wont find another store like it anywhere in the world and for so many reasons…
So pop into shop @ 3A Browning Street, West End, QLD, 4101, or check out the online store
Thanks to all the girls for putting up with me and the summer heat and lack of fresh air throughout the shoot due to the location, I’m sorry the weather turned and we couldn’t be out in the open. Thanks to Lewis for the million stupid questions you asked that probably extended the shoot to another half an hour, and for dabbing the sweat off of everyone when needed, you are definitely the weirdest most interesting assistant I have ever had on a shoot buddy…
So here are a few shots from the days shoot enjoy while I sort through everything and get it up on my THE BAKE HOUSE @ WORDPRESS
and here on the blog, there are many more shoots to edit and upload so keep your eyes peeled enjoy…
