Gary Baseman is a leader within an international cultural movement that includes both mainstream and underground art. After a career as a top commercial illustrator, creator of Disney’s Teacher’s Pet animated show, and artist for the Cranium board game, he felt he should not be “limited to one world, whether the gallery world, editorial world, or art toy world.” He has now embraced them all with success.
In March 2013, the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles will install a major career retrospective, My Door Is Always Open, that will run for six months. Dark Horse is celebrating with a new range of merchandise, all selected and approved by Gary Baseman.
The fun and zany artwork from his “The Door is Always Open” exhibition is featured on these colorful Gary Baseman The Door is Always Open Playing Cards.
Release Date: April 17, 2013. Pre-order.
