About Tuesday Bassen

Award-winning illustrator and designer Tuesday Bassen brightens the world through her whimsical imagery. With the successful online store, an impressive client roster including Lucky Peach and Adidas, and the recent opening of her brick-and-mortar Friend Mart in LA, Tuesday had a reversal of fortune in early 2016 with a shocking discovery of high-profile art theft. International clothing brand Zara had been using Tuesday’s designs without her knowledge or permission, and fans were taking notice. Through legal action and Instagram appeals to her 170K followers, Tuesday is fighting back and raising awareness by launching the #StopArtTheft movement with fellow artists.
