FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Portland, OR – Creative non-profit WeMake is proud to announce a special edition of their monthly design event, sketchXchange, featuring the renowned Los Angeles artist, animator, and toy designer Gary Baseman. This interactive and inspirational gathering is open to the public, and will take place on Friday, June 7 at the Hollywood Theatre.
Named one of the 100 Most Creative People in Entertainment by Entertainment Weekly, Baseman is best known for his work on the Emmy-winning ABC/Disney animated series Teacher’s Pet and for his design of the best-selling board game Cranium. Baseman’s work has also been published in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, Time, and Rolling Stone.

We hope to see you there!
SketchXchange is a monthly WeMake event that gives students, creative professionals, and curious community members a peek inside the creative process of Portland’s favorite artists and illustrators. Presenters share their sketchbooks and answer questions from the group, while participants bring their own sketchbooks to swap drawings and exchange ideas.
Proceeds from this event will help WeMake’s efforts to support arts and music education, as well as Hollywood Theatre’s Animate It! program, which organizes affordable animation workshops for kids ages 7-18.
