Gary Baseman @ Sanrio 50th Anniversary Celebration

My good friend and pervasive artist, Gary Baseman, has been having fun and working hard in celebration of Sanrio's 50th Anniversary.  Gary held a figure drawing workshop where he worked one on one with the lucky attendees drawing beloved Sanrio and Baseman characters.  To see photos of the class, check out Angelique Groh's blog on Juxtapoz. Afterwards, Gary held a special print signing of his painting (pictured above) for the Small Gifts LA Art Show.   

This is the last weekend to experience Small Gifts LA before it heads over to Miami for Art Basel.  For more info, visit Sanrio.com.
