Kick-Ass Chicks: Tuesday Bassen 

From interstellar cowgirls, to badass biker babes, artist Tuesday Bassen is no stranger to perfectly capturing the beauty of the strong female type. Amidst the chaos of the LA Art Book Fair, we caught up with the young graphic designer to learn about her struggle to make a name for herself within a male-dominated industry, and the inspiration behind her work she describes as “slumber party meets Easy Rider.” Get to know Tuesday a little better, and prepare yourself to fall pen-over-paper with this ball of talented energy.

Picasso at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, February 1941

Harriet Johnson (left) of Edison High School is completely bewildered by the painting “The Ram’s Head” finished by Picasso in 1925. While its many intricacies puzzled Miss Johnson, Donald Knox of Marshall High forgot the many patterns to marvel at the beautiful shading of colors achieved by the artist. Donald, who was enthusiastic about the exhibition, agreed Picasso certainly is an “individualist.”

i have a question and I hope I don't sound rude but do you have to be a Calart grad to work at Cartoon network? Cause I kinda have my heart set on Calarts but the price is too much so I picked SCAD. Will it matter if I want to get a job at cartoon network or not?

Totally not a rude question! A lot of people ‘round these parts have gone to Cal Arts but that’s not a prerequisite. Lamar, another boarder on SU, didn’t go there and I went to college in NY along with Rebecca Sugar, Ian Jones-Quartey and Kat Morris (and they’re my bosses!) My board partner, Lauren, didn’t go to any college and a bunch of my friends on Regular Show went to school in Minneapolis. Yes, Cal Arts puts you in CA but it’s hard work and not being a dick that get you hired.
