Photo by a clerk at Samy’s Camera.
A couple of weeks ago when I was in Los Angeles, I was at the famous Samy’s Camera getting a new camera and behind me in line was artist Gary Baseman! I love Gary Baseman’s work and we have a mutual friend in common as well. When I mentioned the name of the friend to him, he pulled out his cell phone and said “look who I just got off the phone with!” It was really incredible, but as you know from reading this site daily, things like that happen to me all the time. If you are unfamiliar with Gary Baseman’s work, check out his official website (link is above) – he’s work is really awesome. I’m pleased to report his personality is awesome too! Thanks so much for taking a picture with me in the store!
